Window Shopper Los Angeles: Denim Stores on Robertson Blvd.


In this edition of Denim Therapy‘s Window Shopper, we take you on a denim smorgasbord on Los Angeles’ Robertson Boulevard, where celebrities, trend-conscious shoppers and hungry paparazzi frequent.  Why Robertson?  Have you seen the stores on that street?  Besides playing host to Lisa Kline and three Kitson boutiques, you can shop at several premium denim brands within one city block without having to stop off at the nearest Starbucks.  Denim-driven brands like AllSaints, Paige, 7 For All Mankind, Gap 1969 and True Religion can literally be found within one block.  This does not include Intermix, Kitson and Madison, boutiques which carry a fantastic array of designer jeans for men and women in stock all within walking distance.  And we say, walking distance in L.A. terms.

Winder Shopper NYC: Madewell Soho


We’re bringing window shopper back just in time for the gorgeous spring-summer window displays of New York’s finest denim retailers! Our latest stop was at Madewell in Soho, where the colorful decor and spring-y ensembles had us visualizing our escapes from the city in serious style. The front window was decorated in pom-poms and fringe, and while that may sound like a kid’s birthday party, the aforementioned frou-frou was done in a fun spectrum of jewel tones, making it super classy. Outfits included basic separates like denim shorts & lace tops, styled with woven hats and bright cardigans. Favorite accessories included a floral-print silk scarf and denim-textured espadrilles. Drooling yet?

Window Shopper New York City: Lucky Brand 67th St


In this edition of Window Shopper, we stroll by the Lucky Brand boutique on the corner of 67th Street and 3rd Avenue. While we could have guessed at the styling before we even got close enough to peer through the glass (ethnic ’70s rustic boho-galore), we loved the addition of  the oversize vintage luggage and tin lantern that gave an air of summer jet-set so the scene.

Window Shopper New York City: H&M


H&M on Lexington Ave and 59th street has an enticing bit of info painted on its window… denim for under $10? Sounds too good to be true… and too cheap to be anything but fast fashion. But we did enjoy the cool blue display of mannequins amidst the miniature hot air balloons (some of which were ballooned out of denim!), styled in camel-colored leather, long tiered skirts, denim vests, and belted knit tunics. It was somewhat like a whimsical moment from a storybook.

Window Shopper Los Angeles: Rising Sun & Co.


Nestled on a quiet little corner in Old Pasadena sits Rising Sun & Co. Indigo Goods, a denim and duck (cloth) shop and haberdashery. If you have an appreciation for denim history, tailoring and vintage furnishings, you’ll want to hang out here.  Currently on display in the window is some frontier-inspired denim wear: a dress, workwear jeans and shirts. An imposing fur coat stands in the foreground to modern slim and straight leg selvedge jeans folded on wooden pallet tables. Scroll down to the end to see a tailor at work on someone’s jeans inside the back room haberdashery!

Window Shopper New York City: Yellow Rat Bastard


The largest location of the Yellow Rat Bastard chain resides in Soho, NY. The urban street wear line based the concept of their store on a Sin City comic, so the graphic details and dark windows make a lot of sense. We did see some pops of colored denim and some fun back pocket stitching detail, like the Union Jack and a bunch of dancing skeletons. Converse sneakers were pinned up one side of the wall and mannequins stood three-wide dressed in layered urban-winter attire. We do admire their consistency.

Window Shopper New York City: Madewell


Madewell in Soho, NYC always goes above and beyond the call of generic window display, with crafty, kitschy, vintage inspired concepts. From their jars full of metal sewing notions to the vintage film cameras and spools of yarn, we get inspired just peering through the glass. This time around we found hand-dipped spoons in different hues of paint strung in the windows—such a charming touch! And of course, there were highly tempting jeans in the window too.

Window Shopper New York City: Paige USA


A stroll past the Paige windows in Soho, NYC (can you believe we were even out strolling in the midst of snow-pocalypse?) revealed a fun spread of celebrity gossip-esque magazines opened to pages full of the rich and the famous going about their business in Paige denim. Rockstars, actresses, and socialites alike were featured in the glossy window display–Kate Moss, Jessica Alba, and Gwen Stefani were just a few babes we spotted. We thought this tactic a rather clever way to keep the street cred levels high…
