Sisters of Los Angeles, the line of haute-modern gifts and souvenirs celebrating local pride, has unveiled some new products for the summer season that are too good to pass up.

Following on the heels of SOLA’s popular Los Angeles and Malibu drink glasses, friendship bracelets, T-shirts and key chains, the company is now offering beach towels ($39.95) just in time for the warm weather.

Also new are glass candles ($14.95*) inspired by traditional Mexican seven-day candles, which I will be buying by the armload for festive outdoor entertaining. The candles are printed using organic ink and poured in L.A.


SOLA was created by architect and author of “Bohemian Modern: Living in Silver Lake” Barbara Bestor, product development specialist Karen Alweil, and fashion-lifestyle publicist Sara Stein. Since launching last year with goods name-checking L.A., the beaches and canyons, SOLA has widened its geographic reach to offer products celebrating locales beyond the Southland, including New York City, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Boston.
