Phillip Lim Shares His Fave Spots in LA

Known for designing classic pieces with street elegance, Phillip Lim’s collections are a go-to for fashion bloggers, editors, artists, and models. Although his designs exhibit expert tailoring, there’s always a touch of effortlessness, whether it be a slouchy fit or a simple color story. That relaxed attitude could very well derive from his LA roots, which Refinery 29 captured in their latest feature with the designer. Being an LA native myself, his list of favorite places warms my heart—especially because it’s filled with local treasures and a touch of classic LA.

I love that he chose Gold Bug and Ivanhoe Books, and that he stops by Silverlake Wine to pick up a nice bottle before a dinner party. His shout out to Griffith Park for hiking because “it’s less crowded than doing Runyon Canyon” gives him even more cred, too. Seeing that we virtually go to the same places, maybe I’ll start scouting each spot more frequently to catch a Lim sighting. No, not creepy at all.
