Los Angeles is in the midst of a fashion renaissance. Hedi Slimane, newly appointed Creative Director of Yves Saint Laurent, is calling the city his home. And edgy up-and-comers are opening up shop in neighborhoods like Silver Lake and Los Feliz.
Fittingly, a host of interesting boutiques have popped up selling far more interesting fare than outdated Juicy Couture sweatsuits. Here, we have compiled some of our favorites including LA institution Maxfield, one of the first boutiques to bring avant-garde designers to the West Coast to cutting edge concept store Des Kohan, which sells everything Hussein Chalayan to Viktor & Rolf.

Camille De Soto designed her store Lady to look like a chic closet complete with brown walls and cabinetry. It's one of those stores that is both well stocked and affordable—most items don't exceed $150. 4974 Eagle Rock Blvd, Los Angeles;

Satine is the destination for girls on the hunt for Isabel Marant and Richard Nicoll. Other designers on offer include Balenciaga and Lanvin. Essentially if you are a fashion "it" girl head to Satine right now. 8134 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles;

Housed in Howard Hughes' historic Art Deco headquarters, Just One Eye includes retail offerings as well an event and gallery space. For hard to find Rodarte to Anthony Vaccarello head here. 7000 Romaine Street, Los Angeles;

Maxfield is LA's original groundbreaking boutique. Tommy Perse, the store's founder, is legendary for being the first West Coast retailer to embrace the color black, and cutting-edge looks from Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garçons. Decades later, this is still the place to shop in LA. 8825 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles;

Often proclaimed to be the best vintage store on the planet (we aren't exaggerating) Shareen also reworks vintage fabrics to create unique designs. 8377 W. 3rd, Los Angeles;

Whether or not you can afford the offerings at Elyse Walker, it's worth a visit to this curated store that is over 6,500 square feet. Celebrity clients, including Jennifer Garner and Renee Zellweger, couldn't be wrong. 15306 Antioch Street, Pacific Palisades;

Come to Driftwood for a mix of Navajo rugs, Baja hooded ponchos, vinyl records and reclaimed timber furniture. 3938 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles;

American Rag Cie offers a mix of vintage and cutting edge designers. The store's denim bar is one of the best on the West Coast. 160 South La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles;
