#Shoplocal The Annual Melrose Arts District Holiday Gift Guide

Clothes, Shoes, Accessories

You can never go wrong with a holiday gift from the Melrose Arts District. There’s pretty much something for everyone, and when you shop on Melrose you’re supporting a lot of independent creators and business owners.
Known worldwide for its fashion scene, the Melrose Arts District is the place to go in L.A. for designer clothes, hard-to-find shoes, and unique accessories. This is just a teaser – come see us for blocks and blocks of great gift options.

DITA

Let’s be honest, your man is going to look real good in these Mach-Eights. Yeah, they’re sporty and sturdy (titanium, acetate, enamel). Also a little retro (‘80s inspired) and a lot futuristic. And fully a gift he won’t expect and will never forget.

GOORIN BROTHERS

Here’s a hat for a particular kind of lady. Part of the Sherbinskis x Goorin collab, this obviously orange Dean the Butcher felt fedora is a year-round wear and built for attraction. Comes with a super-cool oversized hatbox you won’t even want to wrap.

IAMKOKO

You need to get on this collab with Nessa Barrett before you can’t. The “Til Death” collection of sweatpants, hoodies, and tanks is exactly what any cool girl would want to wear this winter, plus the message…we agree!

MANHEAD

Don’t let the name fool ya. Manhead has collectible music merch for the ladies, too. While the scope of artists represented is intense – from Garbage to Machine Gun Kelly – we’re going with the Billy Idol tee because it pretty much represents what we’ve been doing since last March.
