Once a hangout for rebellious types scouring the shelves at vintage clothing shops and record stores, Melrose Avenue has gone more mainstream with the addition of chain stores like Urban Outfitters. The farther west you go on Melrose, the tonier the selection. Here you can get your designer fix at such high-end shops as Marc Jacobs, Helmut Lang, Hérve Léger, Alexander McQueen, Agent Provocateur, Fred Segal, Paul Smith, Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang and Vivienne Westwood.
Nearby Melrose Place (a small street that's only a few block long) houses Carolina Herrera, Monique Lhuillier, and other upscale shops.
