Backed by a wide range of eclectic muses—including travels, textiles and flea market treasures—Kathryn Bentley has built a brand that truly reflects her personal obsessions. Her shop, Dream Collective, is an L.A. wonder, filled with modern gifts that span generations in both style and aesthetic. Today Kathryn is providing a virtual tour of Dream Collective and sharing her visions for the perfect gift.
Tell us about Dream Collective. How did you get into the business, and how does your background in design influence your line of fine jewelry and goods?
Dream Collective started six years ago when I moved to Los Angeles. It started as a jewelry line and then evolved into the store. My namesake fine jewelry line, Kathryn Bentley, had a devoted following, and Dream Collective expanded the vision to a broader audience.
