The brilliant designers Rodarte are two sweet sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, who are in love with California sunshine and pretty, lacey, delicate things and hot desert sands and giant condors flapping black wings against a blue sky and cold white mountaintops …and…in short – everything good in this world!

Absolutely the place for your stash of sea shells and gold coins and bits of odd shaped driftwood – all those wonderful treasures a lady out to have in her purse!
