Review:

“City of Style provides a rich history of L.A. style and captures how modern day trends are translated by girls today to look effortless, free-spirited and cool.” (Rachel Bilson)

From the Back Cover:

A deep appreciation and a wild visual ride through the wonderland of Los Angeles-style

Los Angeles harbors its own canon of styles: Romantic Bohemian, Glamour, Skater and Surfer, Rocker, Chola-Style, Indie-Eclectic, and Casual Chic—each shaped by the unique mix of subcultures, climates, geography, history, and personalities that have coexisted in different pockets of the greater LA area. These signature looks continue to inspire celebrities, clothing designers, and stylists the world over. In City of Style, Melissa Magsaysay, style editor for the Los Angeles Times, draws on decades of the best, most iconic examples of LA-style and explores the trends, tastes, and fashion innovations of today's Angelenos—while offering a taste of the retail landscape, a guide to stores and shops, and helpful tips on how to buy and wear key pieces for each different style.

Featuring exclusive interviews with Los Angeles's most influential designers, retailers, and trendsetters, including:

Monique Lhuillier
Trina Turk
Tony Hawk
Georgina Chapman (Marchesa)
Phillip Lim
Slash
Cameron Silver
Cynthia Rowley
And more.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 250 x 178 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Los Angeles harbors its own canon of styles that began within the city limits and continue to inform celebrities, stylists and street fashion the world over. From the bohemian spirit of Joni Mitchell living in Laurel Canyon during the 1960 s to the tow headed skaters in Venice beach whose fearless attitude and unkempt clothes capture the city s free-spirited mantra, L.A. s style history is born from skate and surf subcultures as much as it is the sizzle and endless red carpet of Hollywood. LA Times style editor Melissa Magsaysay takes an in-depth, thoroughly researched approach to Los Angeles style, exploring the mix of culture, climate, geography, history and celebrity that came together in different neighborhoods to create several styles unique to LA, specifically: Indie, Rocker, Boho, Glamour, Skater, Chola, and Casual. Within Magsaysay s exploration of each style, she takes a look back at some of the iconic examples over the last half century and the current-day Angelinos, captured in a man-on-the-street manner a la The Sartorialist. Readers will also get a taste of the Los Angeles retail landscape, with a guide to stores and shops, and how to buy and wear key pieces for each style. Woven throughout this multi-layered approach are Magsaysay s thoughts and observations about style in Los Angeles as well as the influence the west coast has had on high fashion and contemporary markets all over the world. LA Style will feature extensive, exclusive interviews with Los Angeles most influential retailers, designers, and style icons, including: Monique Lhuillier, Michael Kors, Drew Barrymore, Ron Robinson (owner of Fred Segal), Tommy Perse (Maxfield), Doris Raymond (The way We Wore) and Jeannie Lee (Satine), and more.
