Whether they're enlisting literal cool kids to create its show music, sending their uber-creative crew of friends down the runway, or dreaming up fashionable museum exhibits, bicoastal label Eckhaus Latta is always artfully swimming against the stylish stream (and has become a LVMH Prize finalist in the process). And after opening their first boutique in L.A.'s unassuming Little Armenia corridor of East Hollywood three years ago, designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta have decided to relocate their retail operations closer friends in Chinatown.

In a statement, L.A.-based Latta says the move marks her and N.Y.-based Eckhaus' desire to "feel connected to our New York store," which is also located in the Big Apple's Chinatown district. (Both outposts boast Broadway addresses.) "We wanted to move to a more central area, where engagement with our community can take a multifaceted approach, with regular events and happenings.  A lot of our friends and collaborators run businesses out of Chinatown, the Eastside and Downtown, so it was a natural decision to be here."

Landing just steps away from equally cool L.A. label Building Block, the 500-square-foot relocated shop stocks the controversial cult-favorite label's fall/winter 2019 and pre-spring '20 ready-to-wear collections, including its very L.A.-ready denim, avant-garde knits, and many other sculptural silhouettes that the designer duo has become known for.

Eckhaus Latta also teamed up with architect and frequent collaborator Emma Price on the minimalist interiors, which boast otherworldy greenery, whimsical wood fixtures, colorful rugs, marble accents, and more chic decor. Stylish superfans may want to keep their eyes peeled, as the label's design studios occupy the space next door.
