Behind the Scenes: Hot Sox hits Venice Beach!
The Hot Sox creative team recently escaped the chill of a New York City winter for sunny Venice Beach, California where we shot our Spring 2017 campaign. We set up camp right by the beach and spent a busy day shooting on the Boardwalk. Venice Beach’s eclectic vendors and mix of architecture provided the perfect backdrop for the new collection. Armed with bags of samples, we even convinced a local couple to allow us to feature their dog in a shot! We lucked out with a perfect sunny day and an exquisite sunset. Be sure to check out the results and our new #KeepYourSoxOn campaign on Facebook and Instagram!
While our team was there for work, Venice Beach is an excellent vacation option too! See below for our team’s list of musts:
Hotel Erwin is a hip boutique located right on the beach. The rooftop bar offers outstanding views of Venice Beach and the Pacific Ocean. Great people watching too!
Gjelina, located on Abbot Kinney, is a long time local favorite. Known for outstanding thin crust pizzas, this is definitely the place to see and be seen!
The Butcher’s Daughter (http://www.thebutchersdaughter.com/) is another excellent choice. Offering a locally sourced, seasonal vegetarian menu, this local hot spot is as well known for its décor as its food.
No trip to Venice Beach is complete without a stroll down Abbot Kinney Blvd. With a unique selection of emerging designers, indie brands and local favorites, you’re sure to find something special!
