Besides Anna Wintour's Voguestagram movement, our favorite thing about this year's massive Vogue September issue is LA's superior presence. In addition to a full feature dedicated to luxury retailer/gallery Just One Eye, the fashion bible also slipped in a guide to our city's "coolest fashion and places" that includes Racked Awards winner Cerre, blogger/designer Jayne Min and hipster hangout Mohawk General Store.
The West Coast love starts on page 616, when the glossy compares Just One Eye to global retail destinations like Colette in Paris and Dover Street Market in London, adding, "Just One Eye brings both a specific moment—now—and a dynamic city into focus, filtering everything that's culturally important to LA (from cinematic history to Pop Art and an eclectic fashion sense) through one stylish prism."
Over on page 624, Vogue offers a two-page hit list of local haunts and influencers that contribute to LA's cool factor. Cerre's "couture-like basics," Mohawk General Store's "seventies-centric, nature-loving environment" and Reform Gallery's "treasure trove for fans of modern California furniture" are all highlighted. For bites, Eater LA editor/Bravo star Kat Odell's pick Bestia is in the mix, as is celeb spot Laurel Hardware.
On the It girl tip, page 625 shines a light on filmmaker/TenOverSix regular Gia Coppola, as well as Stop It Right Now's Jayne Min, who was also featured in Vogue's 2012 September issue for her custom Céline skateboard deck. Female rock groups Deap Vally and rising fashion fixtures Haim are also in the mix. Pick up a copy today to see the rest.
