Bed|Stü opens LA boutique: Kelli Berglund, Jaime King, Ali Landry, Brooke Burke, Jeff Schroeder attend

City chic made its way to Malibu Country Mart when Bed|Stü, crafters of hand-wrought boots, shoes, belts and handbags, opened its first brick-and-mortar store just before the American Thanksgiving holiday. Fashionistas from across Los Angeles made the trek to the tiny shopping enclave to see the full fall–winter collection for women and men, ahead of its public opening, on November 21. A lucky few taste-makers also got to step out (literally) with a pair of Bed|Stü’s Isla boots, a sturdy but feminine wardrobe staple. They could also add a monogram or pattern (via hand-branding) to further personalize them.
   Bed|Stü opened for business in a small Los Angeles warehouse in 1995, as a firm focused on hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind accessories that were also affordable (prices today run between US$200 and US$350). Today, the company still steers clear of mass production, and continues to use natural leathers, vegetable-based tanning process, and hand-finished products. Other features include sturdy Goodyear welted soles and hand-sewn tailoring to ensure the life of the investment.
   Celebrities on hand included actress and model Jaime King, Ali Landry, Brooke Burke-Charyet, Kelli Berglund (Disney’s XD Lab Rats) Big Brother host Jeff Schroeder and his wife Jordan Lloyd.
   Landry was overheard saying, ‘Everywhere I look there is a new pair I want!’ Dozens of people who joined the crowd to try on boots, get an on-site manicure by Nail Garden, and sip Malibu Family Wines and beer by Peroni agreed. Outside of Los Angeles, shoe mavens can shop the collection internationally at bedstu.com.—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor
