Shopper’s Diary: Dosa 818 in Los Angeles

March 4, 2011

On a recent trip to Los Angeles, Julie and I stopped in at Dosa 818, the temple-like urban loft where designer Christina Kim showcases her line of clothing and household wares. Located on the top floor of the terra-cotta-tiled Wurlitzer building in LA’s fashion district, the open space reflects Kim’s commitment to the handcrafted and artisanal. The loft’s original concrete floor and pillars are counterbalanced by simple low-to-the-ground tables displaying an ever-changing array of objets and artisan-created accessories from all over the world. Go to Dosa 818 for more information.
