Weltenbuerger - Berlin in LA

WeltenbuergerVermont
"Come here if you want to stand out from the crowd."

And stand out, you will.  Equipped with an eclectic mix of vintage and new, Weltenbuerger owner, Bryan Sanderson, is definitely not afraid to take chances.  His vision? Select designers with a one-of-a-kind aesthetic who have not yet been overexposed.

With about half of his selections coming from his hometown in Berlin and a healthy amount of LA designers such as Ermie (whose delicious silk garments you will want to live in), Weltenbuerger is a one-stop shop for architecturally-savvy clothing you will not find elsewhere.  Oh, and the artwork?  Carefully-chosen local artists displaying their best work in this ultra-inspired environment.

Airy, artsy and futuristically-fresh.

Price points range $68-$150 for vintage and $130-$800 for new.  Still a little too rich for your blood?  Unlike many high-end boutiques, Weltenbuerger is not afraid to offer their beloved a little discount here and there.  Like their Facebook page and follow their blog to stay in the loop.

Expect mostly earth tones with a flair of Americana from their Eastside location (pictured here) and a much more vibrant color selection on Abbot Kinney.

Consistent with their desire to embrace the "world citizen" (weltenbuerger in German) philosophy, the progressive-thinking shop owners have teamed up with the Esperanza Immigrant Rights Project. Purchase the tote bag (above right) for a mere $15 and all proceeds go to help "inspire hope & social justice in So Cal's most vulnerable immigrant and refugee communities."  How could you not?
