Our guide to Pasadena
A Day in Pasadena
We spent a day with Emeri, where we took a trip to Old Town Pasadena — a lively and diverse city located just ten miles from downtown Los Angeles, California and where we shot our latest collection at. Old Pasadena, often referred to as Old Town Pasadena or just Old Town, is the original commercial center of Pasadena and is surrounded by impeccably restored late 19th and early 20th-century architecture. “Old Pas”, as the locals affectionately call it, has hidden laneways and a lively strip of shops and restaurants along the main drag, Colorado Boulevard.
Our collection “A Day in Pasadena” takes inspirations from this lively city, capturing timeless femininity and the spirit of mid century modern style. These pieces are thoughtfully designed to be comfortable yet stylish, made for long days of free-spirited adventure in the city. Scroll down to see snippets of the day spent with Emeri in this charming town, with pieces from the collection.
Our friends from Los Angeles has also kindly shared with us some of their favourite spots and hidden gems, and we are excited to share them with you!
