YOUR GOOD GUY TO KNOW
Brian DeLowe, Hospitality Wizard
Whether you’re looking to hang your hat in the City of Angels for just a few nights or, you know, permanently, Brian’s outfit Proper Hospitality has got you covered. For the short term: the company’s hotel arm, boasting gorgeous Avalon properties in both Beverly Hills and Palm Springs, with Proper Hotels coming in Santa Monica and DTLA in 2018. For the long-term: the newly opened Proper Residences in Hollywood’s Columbia Square — luxury abodes boasting top-shelf finishes and where-the-hell-did-you-find-that interior design, plus the full suite of amenities, including a massive rooftop patio with Instagram-worthy views of the Hollywood Hills.
As for that espadrille: we’re talking half slipper, half shoe, all summertime ease. More relaxed than a loafer, more personality than a boat shoe or driver, and has the added distinction of being able to both elevate shorts and dress down a suit. It’s like the Riviera on your feet.
