Those in a rush could easily mistake this boutique for one of the neighborhood’s vintage clothing stores, but Famous Friends actually showcases the new and the undiscovered. As one-time trader on Wall Street and now full-time proprietor Richard Cadet puts it: “The more esoteric the labels, the more we like ’em.” While styles vary from dark and gloomy to soft and spring-like, each item has been carefully chosen with the art of fashion in mind. The list of designers can read like a meeting of the UN—Japan’s Yoshio Kubo, Austria’s Petar Petrov and Ute Ploier, Los Angeles’s own Rick Owens—but Famous Friends is best known for its selection of denim, a fabric that knows no cultural borders.
