The five best shopping experiences in West Hollywood

09_SunsetStrip_Billboards_sizedforPR.jpg

Think of Los Angeles and several things will no doubt spring to mind: glamorous people, poolside lounging, high-end restaurants, glitzy nightlife…and world-renowned shopping. And the best of all of these can be found in West Hollywood – or WeHo, as it’s affectionately known by locals. With everything from quirky boutiques and homeware warehouses to fashion palaces and candle emporiums, there’s something for everyone. Here are the top five places to visit if your credit card’s burning a hole in your pocket on your holiday to West Hollywood (fly from London with Air New Zealand).

Maxfield

This concept boutique is as famous for its appearance as its products. A solitary modernist concrete fortress with temple-like entrances, its beautiful sleek lines and sharp edges have made it the place hip people go to see and be seen – and to buy incredibly cool clothes, of course, including their renowned selection of incredibly rare vintage designer items.

Maxfield also stocks a host of designer brands such as Chanel and Chloé alongside up-and-coming LA grunge labels such as Fear of God and Mike Amiri, giving this shopping gallery a distinct rock ‘n’ roll edge, which explains its appeal to celebrities as varied as the Olsen twins, Usher and Katy Perry.

RH West Hollywood

Homeware brand Restoration Hardware is behind this truly stunning store, which is known for industrial-themed designs with a twist. Think wrought iron beds, tufted leather sofas, concept lighting and lots and lots of metal. As well as the design showrooms, there’s also a Ben Soleimani rug shop, an interior design studio and Bellocq organic tea atelier. And, if gazing at all that furniture has made you crave a sit down, check out the 10,000-square-foot roof garden, complete with fire pits, lounge chairs and a ping pong table out back. Designed to look like an olive grove, it’s open to the community as a public space.

Kelly Wearstler

The Kelly Wearstler flagship store on Melrose Avenue boasts a brilliant mix of lifestyle products, luxury goods, furniture, curiosities, vintage books and one-of-a-kind designs. Kelly’s original shop on Fifth Avenue in New York was anointed a ‘must visit’ by Vogue immediately upon its grand opening in autumn 2007, which goes a long way to explaining why dropping in at the LA sister shop should be on your to-do list. The building itself is ridiculously stylish, featuring signature detailing in perforated metal – you'll feel inspired before you’ve even walked in the door.

Book Soup

Located on the world-famous Sunset Strip, Book Soup is known for its huge and eclectic collection of books (go figure) and vinyl. Bookwise, there are over 60,000 titles specialising in art, film, photography, music and literary fiction. Priding itself on its rare copies, limited editions and autographed prints, this is a real book lover’s paradise, with regular readings and signings.

Candle Delirium

Yes, we’re recommending a candle store. But this isn’t just any candle store. It’s a 3,400 square foot scented utopia with every single candle you could ever want or need. From strong smells to amazing patterns, sophisticated colours to huge rainbow structures, it’s no wonder the exceptionally friendly staff are apt to wax lyrical (sorry) about their products.
