Storefront ReportECHO PARK — The once sleepy stretch of Sunset Boulevard on the east end of Echo Park has become more lively in recent years. Large opening night crowds gather at Shepard Fairey’s Subliminal Projects gallery. Taco lovers seemed perpetually lined up outside Guisados. Indie music fans are descending on Club Bahia across the street from the sleek Elysian apartment tower. Now, joining this mix is Esqueleto, an Oakland-based jewelry shop and gallery.

The shop will be opening in a brick storefront on Sunset Boulevard near Innes Street. Esquelto was opened by jewelry designer Lauren Wolf, whose pieces have been worn by Penelope Cruz and other celebrities. Her shop, however, sells the work of other designers and artists, according to the company website.

Esqueleto Los Angeles is scheduled to open next month.

  1. Love the horrible new roll-ups that are now covered with graffiti!

  2. Iheartechopark

    Seriously. Between the constant litter and the taggers I don’t know which trash is worse. I recommend installing the 311 app it is easy to use and you can send a pic of the tag or whatever it is you want the city to remedy (bulky item pickup , etc).

    • Illegal dumping and graffiti can be remedied by conscientious neighbors using 311. Unfortunately littering is the behavior of tacky people who don’t give a shit about their surroundings, and there’s not much we can do about that except hope they’ll move as the area gets cleaned up and rents increase.

  3. Too bad much of the character of the neighborhood will be erased by the fortress like Sunset Gateway project. http://la.curbed.com/archives/2014/03/echo_parks_huge_sunset_gateway_adds_retail_and_more_parking.php
