Best shops in LA: Playclothes

Shopping at this costume designer favorite truly feels like you’re stepping back in time. Maybe it’s the sweet salesgirls with pin curls and red lipstick, or maybe it’s the old neon Moorpark Pharmacy sign that spans the back wall. Perhaps it’s the fact that local grannies, who were likely alive to wear the clothes when they were in style the first time around, are browsing the rails alongside trendy young things. All we know for sure is that Playclothes’ reasonably-priced pieces for men, women, children and the home—most from the 1940s to 1980s, both designer and ready-to-wear—is one of the most consistently fantastic in LA. We’ve never once left there empty handed, and are pretty confident we never will.
