Today, The Podolls launch their flagship store + Podots for kids
“When did you get your hands on the kids’ pieces?” “Two hours ago,” answered Josh Podoll, just three days ago while we were at a special preview event to celebrate today’s opening of The Podolls flagship store, which beautifully showcases the line that Josh and his wife Lauren design together. The opening of the store also marks the launch of Podots, their first-ever kids’ line, inspired by their adorable 2-year-old Dashiel. I was dying to see it…
And it blew me away! Fortunate for all of us who love to coordinate with the littles, the Podots’ textiles and shapes are all echoes from The Podolls’ gorgeous women’s line.
And what, doll clothes, too? Yes, they totally collaborated with Jess Brown in Sausalito to outfit her beautiful rag dolls. Too much!
“Minimalism” tees for hardcore dads.
Besides showing off its eponymous line, the store is stocked with brands that complement the aesthetic Josh and Lauren have perfected — and the accessories are stunning, from Freda Salvador shoes to Clare Vivier bags. And the jewelry case! For one, Lauren worked with She.Rise to add a few exclusive sizes to their line of Swarovski crystal wrap bracelets: Kid’s sizes! It’s hard to read the scale here, but the kid’s pieces are on top, with the women’s coordinates below in the case.
You’re dying for these to be available online, right? Coming soon!
It’s been a treat to call Lauren and Josh friends since earlier this summer, and I couldn’t be happier for them right now. To purchase from The Podolls is to support so much goodness, as they are an amazing example of combining earth-friendly textiles (including the Ghandi-founded Khadi cotton from India), ethical production in San Francisco, and designs that stand the test of time. They’re beautiful people, inside and out.
The Podolls’ flagship store opens today in Burlingame, and you can shop their current collections online.
