Formerly an exclusive menswear boutique (masterminded by Greg Armas of Los Angeles' hip menswear mecca Scout), Assembly has expanded into cutting-edge designer duds for both sexes, and now features women's and unisex styles. The shop stocks edgy threads by the likes of Raquel Allegra, Risto Bimbiloski and Thvm Atelier, along with the house's own label of hand-sewn unisex clothes, as well as evocative knick-knacks and accessories, like vintage jewelry.
