Brits In L.A.
Posted by Tricia Crowley on May 1, 2011 - 7:57:42 PM

LOS ANGELES—Being prim and proper is a must, but the Brits in L.A. have brought the witty ways of their heritage and added an edgy and chic twist to the streets. From the tantalizing tale of Elizabeth Hurley and Hugh Grant to the fairytale of the Beckhams moving to Beverly Hills, the Brits in L.A. never seem to take a backseat when it comes to stories in the press and the fashion they are swaying. With the royal wedding coverage all over the tube, it is the perfect week to celebrate a few particular fashionable Brits in L.A.! Here are a few of NY WEST’s top picks for favorite Brit designers that bring London personality.

Charlotte Olympia

Charlotte Dellal is a favorite when it comes to up-and-coming designers. Her eponymous shoe brand Charlotte Olympia (Olympia being her middle name), is a skyscraper-heel label introduced in London four years ago and is favored by luminaries such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Beyoncé. Her style and influence comes from movies and pin-ups from the ”˜40s and '50s.


Since 2000, the Temperley London label is synonymous with the timeless glamour and exquisite craftsmanship showed throughout the collections; it is desired by women all over the world. Located on the conservative, well-heeled Melrose Place, Temperley London’s dainty and soft-spoken character reflects the true Brit way of showing off. The Temperley collections contain show-stopping dresses, a selection of daywear, signature intarsia and knits adorned exclusively with in-house designed prints and leather.  NY WEST truly appreciates the Temperley design philosophy of creating pieces that are "designed to be timeless and versatile and to ultimately flatter, creating clothes to treasure that will last a lifetime," as stated on their website.


The Paul Smith Melrose Avenue boutique is a pop culture store of fashion and lifestyle products that truly make a statement from the outside with pink walls. The first time NY WEST experienced a Paul Smith store was in the Heathrow Airport in London. The eclectic group of items from baby onesies to signature post cards to branded folding chairs to the finely tailored women’s red seersucker suit, which NY WEST purchased in both cigarette slim trousers and blazer, Paul Smith, “has the ability to anticipate, and even spark off trends not only fashion but in the wider context of popular culture. He manages to transmit a genuine sense of humor and mischief mixed with his love of tradition and the classics,” as stated in the Paul Smith website.


This is Brit fashion in L.A., and let’s hope the British invasion stays!
