Where to Shop

Editors Pick

The Lines: Michael Bastian, Rag & Bone, Tim Hamilton, Robert Geller, Spurr and Patrik Ervell.

The Shop: Owned by stylist Ilaria Urbinati and actor/DJ Danny Masterson, this new spot has a masculine interior with vintage furnishings (antique phone booths double as dressing rooms). When the outdoor courtyard isn't playing host to parties, it's the seating area for the forthcoming cafe serving Gimme! Coffee from Brooklyn (Urbinati's favorite) and pastries baked in the neighborhood.

  • The staff's uniforms were designed by Rag & Bone.

7525 Beverly Blvd., LA; 323.965.0800

The Lines: Their signature line of ceramic tableware and tiles along with glassware by Weck.

8150 Melrose Ave., LA; 323.944.0301

The Lines: Ralph Lauren's ranch-inspired line of workwear.

The Shop: Top tier denim, slim-fit oxfords and vintage leathers that have been reworked into belts and bags. It's expensive, but worth a trip.
