& Other Stories and More Shops Insiders Want in LA Next Year

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Just like last year and the year before that, we've tapped a handful of influential Angelenos to weigh in on 2014's greatest hits and misses. Yesterday we called out LA's best stores and coolest brands. Now, we're asking insiders what stores they'd love to see open here in 2015.

Heather Lipner, Clashist founder: "Bird from NYC or Frances May from Portland."

Brigham Yen, DTLA Rising blogger: "I want UNIQLO Downtown!"

Lucy Akin, Super Street founder: "I would love to have a Dover Street Market in downtown LA. I used to shop there when I worked in London and I think their edit is genius!"

Jayne Min, Stop It Right Now blogger: "I'd love to see & Other Stories open up shop on the Eastside. Or maybe my bank account would be safer if it were on the Westside!"

Shareen Mitchell, Shareen Vintage owner: "New York's City Bakery. Oh...the pretzel croissant and hot chocolate are to die."

Kelsi Smith, Stylesmith blogger: "I've been going home to London fairly frequently over the past couple of years and the retail scene there is just booming. Primark is making it's move in the US, so that would be a welcome addition!"

Gabriela Artigas, Gabriela Artigas Jewelry designer: The Line from NYC."

Paul C. Witt, Wittmore owner: "Wittmore's second location will be opening in the Arts District in spring 2015."
