As seen in our many juice chats and studio invasions, we know that our city is brimming with stylish talents who know what's up in this town. Bloomingdale's seems to agree, and it name-checks seven local gentlemen in the LA edition of its Men's Style Icons spread.
Linking up with A Continuous Lean blogger Michael Williams, the NYC-based retailer spotlights Racked faves like TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie, eyewear designer Garrett Leight, and sexy stylist Johnny Wujek. Other LA heavy-hitters on the list include superstar chef Roy Choi, LACMA curator Franklin Sirmans, actor Manish Dayal, and TV producer Tom Leach.
In addition to showcasing their killer style, the leading men share their favorite local hangs (Venice for Mycoskie and Leight, natch) and their own personal icons. Shop their kits and see the full lookbook here.
Inspired? The legendary department chain is toasting the campaign with a soiree next Thursday, April 9th at its Beverly Center outpost. Head to the men's department from 6 to 9pm and enjoy gratis bites, Scotch tasting with Hugo Boss and coffee from TOMS. There'll also be a magician, an artist who'll be recreating prints inspired by 2(X)ist's undies, and other cool goings-ons; add your name to the list and RSVP at email@example.com.
