Charlotte Stone LA pop-up opens

Mar 23, 2018

Ventura, CA-based footwear designer Charlotte Stone has opened her first physical location as a pop-up shop at Platform in Culver City. She plans to open a permanent brick-and-mortar location in DTLA later this spring.

The Charlotte Stone pop-up at Platform will showcase the entire assortment which has caught the attention of Hollywood celebrities including Brie Larson and Solange. She will offer sandals, mules and booties with a range of heel and material choices in a wide rainbow of colors.

For the space design, Stone turned to her husband, furniture designer Steve Nasker, using blonde plywood scraps from his business to create wood totems in the pop-up. Stone regularly shares a studio location with her husband's furniture design business, Pacific Wonderland, Inc., in Ventura.

In a release, Platform describes her brand as "approachable yet dressed-up glamour known to Southern California." Until now, the brand was sold exclusively online through e-commerce destinations including Revolve, Shopbop and Need Supply.

Of her aesthetic, Stone explained her shoes are colorful and not too serious, although she also loves a natural look. "I think it’s a West Coast California thing," the Kingston, Ontario native said.

Shoes in her spring '18 collection include $200 flip flops and $300 pull-on ankle boots. Stone has been working on her namesake brand for the past four years. Having graduated from FIDM and prior to starting her own label, she designed for Steve Madden and Joie.

The pop-up runs through April at Culver City's Platform at 8850 Washington Blvd. Charlotte Stone will then move into a permanent retail location at DTLA's The Row later this spring.
