If a Tim Burton film mated with the post-apocalyptic world of Mad Max — and their spawn happened to be extremely stylish — it would shop at Case Study. Although many of the clothes it carries are brooding and dark, the actual space resembles a bright and vibrant art gallery. From paintings on the wall to light fixtures that look like they came from an Ikea on Jupiter, I feel like I should be paying an entrance fee just to browse.
Drawing in the city’s most discerning avant garde fashionistas, the shop just debuted its fall/winter line. Brett Westfall co-owns Case Study along with Anastasia founder Amir Garavi. Having collaborated with the likes of Comme des Garcons, KZO, and Opening Ceremony, Westfall also run the label Unholy Matrimony, which is well represented at the shop along with hard-to-find and highly sought after labels like Jun Takahashi’s Undercover, Ria Dunn’s Lost & Found, and L.A.’s own Odyn Vovk.
Key items from the F/W season include an Undercover leather jacket ($3,312) and buttoned long coat ($966), the Unholy Matrimony ninja short jacket ($330) and hoodie ($225) with matching drop crotch pants ($212), the Odyn Vovk wool short coat ($987) and linen drop crotch pants ($385), and the Lost & Found hooded zip jacket ($1837) and reversible hoodie ($319).
