Vintage archive and retailer What Goes Around Comes Around have opened a new Los Angeles outpost, and Stylesight was privy to a sneak-peek preview before the recent early-June opening. True to the founders’ vision, the interior was inspired by Art Nouveau and Art Deco influences, with a nod to Biba’s seminal 1960s/70s-era London emporium with eucalyptus wood shelving and furniture inlaid with onyx detailing. The basketball court flooring was salvaged from a local 1950s-era school gymnasium, lending a light, sporty counterpoint to the film-noir-esque interior’s palette.
While the label’s ready-to-wear women’s collection is a highlight of the new shop, be sure to stop by for the hand-selected array of vintage Levi’s, t-shirts, boots and accessories of all styles and eras. Located in an up-and-coming neighborhood and right across the street from American Rag, WGACA’s new boutique is a seductively merchandised mix of old and new, a perfect fit for vintage fiends who appreciate the pre-loved and the [beauty of WGACA’s] studied edit.
Open now Monday to Friday from 11am-8pm and Sunday from 12pm-7pm at 159 S La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles.
