LEGO DOTS LA Pop-Up ft. Meghan Trainor & Anna Cathcart


There has been a slew of aesthetics that have dominated the fashion world for the past year – from Coastal Grandma to Barbiecore to Tenniscore to Y2K. Aesthetics aren’t just about fashion, they’re a way to express yourself through your style, accessories, attitude and décor. That’s where LEGO® DOTS come in, they make sure your space and your style always fits your vibe, whatever it may be. The collection features room décor and fashion accessories giving everyone the ability to create (and recreate) their own ideal aesthetic. 

Opened on the last weekend of August, The LEGO Group created a larger-than-life scale experience at The Grove, where guests got to explore different aesthetics through immersive ‘rooms’ representing three new core aesthetic themes: Island in the Sun, Wandercore and Bold & Vibey.  


Wandercore gave a lot of dream-like vibes, as if you are traveling within your own dreams. A lot of mountain and purple skies, showcasing a unity of purple and pink color ways.

Bold & Vibey

Bold & Vibey gives a lot of geometric and old-school aesthetic vibes. A few shining disco balls and eye-popping patterns gives this room a lot of fluidity for the creative mind.

Island in the Sun

The theme Island in the Sun shows off warm, summer vibes which is paired with nice decorations of water and plants. This one gave an island-vibes and perfect if you want your room to be close to the beach.

Special Guests: Meghan Trainor

I loved playing with LEGO bricks while I was growing up,” said artist Meghan Trainor at the LEGO DOTS Aesthetics Experience at the Grove in Los Angeles.  “As a musician, I know how important it is to express yourself and be creative, so I love the idea that LEGO DOTS is a fun outlet for anyone to make something awesome that reflects their own vibe day after day.” 

Special Guests: Anna Cathcart

“I’m a very creative person and I love finding different ways to express myself,” Cathcart said. “You find who you are in what you love and your aesthetic is the way you express that. It’s about being true to you and finding out more about yourself in the process. Whether it’s sketching or painting or designing with LEGO DOTS, each thing you make can help you better understand yourself.”
