STAG PRESENTS: Faherty in Venice

The STAG PRESENTS series of brand collaborations continues in the STAG Venice loft this month and next with Faherty Brand!  Starting this Friday and running through most of March, Faherty will set up in our 450 square foot loft in Venice and will feature the majority of their men’s AND women’s Spring collections. The men’s collection includes a mix of vintage-inspired outerwear, tops, pants, and boardshorts, while the women’s collection is a unique blend of tomboy-boho-surf style.

The space will take cue from Faherty’s SOHO New York Store, featuring whitewashed barnwood, archival photographs, vintage surfboards, and antique finds from their travels across the world.

To introduce the Surf Shop, we’ll be hosting a cocktail party this Friday night with the Faherty brothers from 6-8pm at STAG Venice. 1338 Abbot Kinney Blvd.
