Chinatown: The Anti-Mall

December 09, 2007|Elizabeth Khuri

Think out of the Crate & Barrel box and head to these shops for the quirkiest gifts around:

OOGA BOOGA, (213) 617-1105 Music buffs will love the hipper-than-thou mix tapes ($10) by Calvin Johnson, who founded the influential '80s indie label K. "Japanese Underground New Wave 1983-1985," anyone?

NEW HIGH (M)ART, (213) 621-7822 Creative types have free rein to curate their own wacky retail experience at this pop-up space (pictured). Snag artist/designer Brian Lichtenberg's retro-funky patchwork Ts ($198).

Lions den, (866) 433-0323 Limited-edition Pumas by cult-favorite artist Mihara Yasuhiro ($140) top the list of best gifts here. Another choice find? Estate L.A.'s graffiti baseball caps ($40-$50).--elizabeth khuri
