For having never been known as a fashion epicenter, Los Angeles can come up with a few surprises from time to time. It's own inimitable style allows it to be rated as one of the most eclectic enclaves of creative endurance. There's always something weird, freaky or totally out of the norm going on here. To a large degree that's a major part of the appeal to coming here, that and the desire of wanting to become a huge movie or television star. There is, however another creative pursuit that up unto this point hasn't gotten the attention it so rightly deserves now. Well, maybe a little attention. It would seem that fashionistas, creative fashion industry heads and critics are flocking to LA in search of fertile new ground to experiment on an unsuspecting public. What better guinea pigs than the eclectic strain of urbanized, metropolitan-i zed, organically socialized folks of such trendy communities like Echo Park, Silver Lake, West Hollywood, North Hollywood and even Beverly Hills itself. We leave out completely the supposed center piece of this attraction, Hollywood for good reason. Fashion institutions in their own right, LA is home to an eclectic mix of "ooh la la" high-end vintage boutiques like Decades, acclaimed fashion labels Rodarte, Band of Outsiders and designers like CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year Scott Sternberg. The bad economy appears to have been good for style. Out of the rubble of economic turmoil arose the genius of creative fashion types who took chances and chased their dreams in a "devil may care", nothing to lose attitude.
Through it all and having achieved the status of "coveted, chill-out respite/business enclave, the Chamberlain blends stately elegance with refined temperament.
