Launched in February, the brand currently has six stores in Japan and one in New York City; a third U.S. store is set to open near Rice University in Houston on Friday and a fourth hits New York City's Spring Street in November.

It's a chance to wear home a piece of Hollywood. A pair of prison fatigues are on sale for $100, but hey, they were worn in "Papillon." If you're a woman with a 14-inch waist, there are plenty of showgirl outfits awaiting. And should you ever have the occasion to need one, there's a clothes rack dedicated to blood-stained, bullet-riddled jackets. For a film buff, an actor going to an audition or a collector of vintage clothing, there's no better place to buy the shirt off a star's back.

Most supermarket chains don't operate more than a store or two in most inner-city neighborhoods. But, after decades of not doing business in much of South Los Angeles, Inglewood and the Eastside, Vons is planning to build 12 stores in several underserved areas. That outstanding commitment is exactly what is needed to help rebuild Los Angeles. The large scale of the commitment is particularly noteworthy. Vons won't experiment with one or two new stores.

Paris-based designer Isabel Marant rhapsodizes about Los Angeles the way most people rhapsodize about her hometown. "In a minute you can be at the sea or in Joshua Tree," she says. "There are so many things to do in nature. But I love the architecture too. There's everything I love - the sun and the light. I have always thought this is a place I could live. " Marant, 45, launched her boho-cool label with jewelry in 1994. Soon after, she expanded into clothing. Over the years she has made quite a study of the L.A. look but did not set foot in the City of Angels until 2010.
