THE STYLE FILES: THE PLACES : Turf Wear

March 15, 1994|MICHELE SEIPP

Los Angeles may be a melting pot, but it's definitely divided itself into fashion turfs and tribes. At the Crenshaw District's Fifth Street Dick's, high stylists in ethnic wear and soft leather bob their heads to the sounds of cool jazz and cappuccino machines. Mrs. Gooch's in Beverly Hills houses expensively attired health-concious types, incognito in dark glasses. Who wants to be recognized while considering the fiber content in yam chips? Venice's Gold's Gym habitues take their passion to gargantuan extremes--extra-loose, parachute-like clothes are the only answer for bulging biceps, quads and lats. Downtown, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, ultra-serious, back-pack-toting art students in fringed jackets and leggings ponder the work of Roy Lichtenstein.
