I was born and raised in the City of Angels, sometimes snarkily referred to as La La Land or other pejoratives. I find myself reacting like I would if someone dissed an eccentric family member, we all know their bonkers but only I can say they are bonkers (because they are family), if you were to mention they were, well that would be a problem.
When I found the finely curated Collected I reveled in their celebration of my city. Even though I am ready to move, Los Angeles will always be my hometown and it makes me proud that Collected shined a light on this sweet city of mine. They have only released one issue (that I know of) but I am aching for more. The whole magazine is so beautifully edited and I love their branding (so not getting over antlers anytime soon). Check it out, you just may be pleasantly surprised to see another part of the City of Angels.
