34 Californian Lifestyle Innovations

From Surf Culture Anthologies to VR Music Festival Apps

— November 1, 2016 — Lifestyle
These Californian lifestyle innovations range from bohemian clothing collections to hillside villas that blend style with luxury. Synonymous with a laid-back and health-conscious lifestyle, the region is known for its groundbreaking restaurants, celebrity-endorsed fitness programs and experiential retail boutiques.

Standouts in the retail realm include Australian fashion brand Bassike's Venice Beach boutique which embodies the oceanside lifestyle with minimalist decor accents and wardrobe staples that are both functional and effortlessly chic. Similarly, Venice Beach pop-up Cabin West offers a curated selection of organic beauty products along with a book store that targets fans of sustainable skincare.

When looking at travel accomodations, a focus on health and wellness is prevalent with examples like 'R4.0,' a lavish fitness bootcamp offered at The Ranch Malibu -- a resort specializing in experiences centered around healthy eating, fitness and mindfulness.

Other Californian lifestyle innovations that live up to the region's obsession with fame and wealth range from helicopter rideshare services to couture slot machines like the one displayed at Saint Laurent's Beverly Hills flagship.
