As a historic landmark in Los Angeles, Echo Park Lake has long drawn a crowd of artistic and talented Angelinos to its shore. With the blossoming of the Lotus — to more recently the installation of free WiFi hotspots, the lake is the perfect place to authentically relax and retreat during all the amazing seasons we have here on the West Coast.
For many years however, the lake has been left polluted and in despair. In 2011 it was restored to its original beauty. It took the hard work and effort of dedicated neighbors and residents to bring back to life this scenic and genuine sanctuary.
In teaming up with Perry Ellis this month, we wanted to share the genuine efforts of members of Los Angeles to show how when a community comes together, we all benefit. The noble actions of a few spark positive momentum in others - and a chain reaction is created.
From the revival of Echo Park Lake, an area was created where families can picnic and runners can jog, and authentic events have encompassed its reopening like the annual Lotus Festival for example.
For this shoot I’m sporting a Very Perry – Perry Ellis windbreaker. It’s actually two pieces that are detachable and can be worn as a vest as well. The lightweight material makes it easy to carry on the go and a perfect layering piece for those windy afternoons at the park.
Their exclusive new line for spring will be available at Macy's Beverly Center and throughout April. Get this look at Macy’s and be sure and sign up for the Perry Ellis mailing list to be the first to know about new arrivals.
