1 South Coast Plaza

South Coast Plaza is less a shopping center and more of a retail mecca. This tony outdoor luxury center founded by the late Henry Segerstrom in Costa Mesa houses the very best luxury brands in the world. Don't believe? Maybe the security guards posted at many store entrances will convince you. Here you'll find new offerings from Sandro, Maje, Van Cleef & Arpels and Berluti, joining longtime favorites like Baccarat, Balenciaga, Patek Philippe, Frette, Faconnable, Harry Winston, Jaeger-Lecoultre, Jimmy Choo, Piaget, Longchamp and more.
3333 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa 1-800-782-8888

2 Rodeo Drive

Rodeo Drive is one of THE most recognizable names in the world; a street where fashion, luxury and entertainment collide. On this iconic avenue in the 90210 you'll find everything from Breguet and Bottega Veneta to Chanel and Celine to Porsche Designer and Richard Mille to new offerings, like flagship stores from Louis Vuitton and Tory Burch. There is only one word to describe Rodeo Drive, and that is "haute."
Beverly Hills, 90210

3 The Malibu Country Mart/Malibu Lumberyard

The Malibu Country Mart and Malibu Lumberyard are not, in fact, owned by the same company. They might have a similar look, similar feel and be adjacent to one another, but they are NOT the same place—a popular misconception. That said, we love both equally for their cool, beachy vibes and amazing boutiques. At the Lumberyard you'll find shops like Alice + Olivia, Alexis Bittar, James Perse, Maxfield and Vilbrequin, while at the Country Mart you'll find John Varvatos, Ron Herman and Westime. Cap your day with an elegant meal at the Country Mart's Mr. Chow or with some karaoke fun at Rande Gerber's Cafe Habana over at the Lumberyard.

4 The Beverly Center

The Beverly Center is a fabulous place for one-stop shopping on Beverly Blvd, right in the heart of most of the L.A. action. Here you'll find offerings from Fendi, Giuseppe Zanotti, Prada, Saint Laurent Paris, Rolex, St. John, Salvatore Ferragamo, Versace and Tiffany & Co.

5 Fashion Island

We love Fashion Island's distinctive Newport Beach feel and find that it's the perfect spot to engage in some prime retail therapy. Here you'll find everything from luxe lines like Halston Heritage, Tom Ford and Neiman Marcus to beachy brands such as Seafolly, Splendid to Calypso St. Barth.
