Planet Blue/Planet Blue Essentials

It began as an organic cotton clothing company almost 15 years ago, which clearly establishes that Planet Blue has always been a bit ahead of the curve. It's hard to determine which outpost of this local favorite is the best. The Santa Monica boutique is known for its rainbow-like racks (everything is sorted by color), while the Beverly Hills emporium is fancier (you can easily snag a red-carpet-worthy gown). The Malibu Country Mart used to be a hotel, and the Planet Blue in it occupies part of the former garage. The ceilings are low, which makes the shop feel like a cozy cave. Shopping here is a laid-back, casual affair: There's tons of denim, along with super-thin T-shirts and batiked Mara Hoffman dresses. Planet Blue Essentials is devoted to home goods, like simple bud vases and throw pillows.
