From the Back Cover:

A deep appreciation and a wild visual ride through the wonderland of Los Angeles-style

Los Angeles harbors its own canon of styles: Romantic Bohemian, Glamour, Skater and Surfer, Rocker, Chola-Style, Indie-Eclectic, and Casual Chic—each shaped by the unique mix of subcultures, climates, geography, history, and personalities that have coexisted in different pockets of the greater LA area. These signature looks continue to inspire celebrities, clothing designers, and stylists the world over. In City of Style, Melissa Magsaysay, style editor for the Los Angeles Times, draws on decades of the best, most iconic examples of LA-style and explores the trends, tastes, and fashion innovations of today's Angelenos—while offering a taste of the retail landscape, a guide to stores and shops, and helpful tips on how to buy and wear key pieces for each different style.

Featuring exclusive interviews with Los Angeles's most influential designers, retailers, and trendsetters, including:

Monique Lhuillier
Trina Turk
Tony Hawk
Georgina Chapman (Marchesa)
Phillip Lim
Slash
Cameron Silver
Cynthia Rowley
And more.
