stop here – this store is really small from the outside, so it can be hard to find, but its right inbetween the DC shop on melrose and a little hair salon. They have some pretty cool art in this place too, some Madussa statues and really cool hats and t shirts. the staff is nice and friendly and if you need anything they are pretty quick to help.
Sneakerheads looking for clothes as stylish as their shoes are sure to love this seriously sleek Melrose shop. – In Short
L.A. is in the grips of streetwear fever, and this uber-stylish Melrose boutique cranks up the heat even more. The snazzy marble floors and soaring ceilings provide a witty contrast to the clothing, which includes dark denim, brightly patterned hoodies, tees and embroidered baseball hats in juicy colors. There are also tons of great accessories, including ultra-luxe gold chains, sexy sunglasses and Gucci-inspired backpacks and duffel bags. Savvy shoppers will be sure to check out the second floor, which is stocked with a handpicked selection of books on avant garde architects like Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier.
Hits: The super-friendly staff couldn't be more helpful--a nice change from the usual attitude at L.A.'s streetwear stores.
Misses: The recent influx of cool shops has made parking on Melrose even more of a challenge.
