A Local’s Guide to Venice Beach with The Lost Explorer Founder David de Rothschild
David de Rothschild founded his lifestyle emporium, The Lost Explorer, in 2015, but the launch date is officially 2025. It’s a 10-year incubation for navigating the trials and errors of running a modern retail company. “We’re a work in progress,” he explains with a hint of excitement. Today, you can drink The Lost Explorer mezcal, wear its limited-run apparel (designed by use not season), sip their organic tea, lather on the 100% natural wellness products, and soon, travel the globe on bespoke trips. It’s a diverse line up all connected by de Rothschild’s commitment to “celebrate and elevate” nature at every opportunity. A seven-continent adventurer, the UK transplant now lives, works and plays in Venice Beach, CA. He chatted with Jetsetter about his favorite places to eat, shop, and surf locally, as well as the fastest escape route to nature.
