FEATURED BOUTIQUE: ELYSE WALKER
With it's iconic Pacific Palisades location, the Elyse Walker boutique offers a curated mix of high and low fashions from designers all over the world. The boutique blends everything from McQueen and Chloe to Frame Denim - and of course, 360Cashmere and Skull Cashmere seamlessly under one roof. What started as just 900 sq feet tucked on an unassuming block in the Pacific Palisades has since attracted quite the following. So much so, now, the boutique nearly is the block. With 150+ designers and a team of stylists to rival that of any department store, the Elyse Walker boutique is a Pacific Palisades tour de force.
Elyse herself is a hybrid of an astute fashion stylist and a fastidious entrepreneur. Propelled by the belief that “every day is a runway,” Elyse manages to find inspiration at every turn. Her passion for styling women is evidenced by the store quadrupling in size since 1999. Elyse’s name has grown to become synonymous with fashions that take on many forms. Boutique owner, fashion director, and shoe, clothing, and accessory designer are just some of these stylish manifestations.
Check out the Q&A session we had with the amazing Elyse Walker!
What are your favorite brands? 360Cashmere, Isabel Marant, Valentino, Zimmerman, Ulla Johnson & Nili Lotan.
What makes your customers coming back? We receive new merchandise every day of the year. Our sales team is great at mixing high and low, meaning that we love to mix designer pieces with contemporary pieces so our clients look and feel styled. Each sales associated is trained to style, and shopping at my store is like having your stylist. That is our goal with each and every client.
Best dressed celebrity? Kate moss is pretty iconic; she has an easy way of mixing designers and making it look like she isn't trying. I love when style looks carefree and Kate Moss does exactly that.
Pandora or Spotify? Pandora because Spotify sometimes misses many new artists.
What is your favorite trend for summer? Boho hippie chic. I could have an entire beach store from May-August. I love beads, caftans and turquoise , and a super cool beach bag is a must have. What’s your dream summer vacation destination? I am now totally addicted to Ibiza. I just came back from a two week vacation there and will be returning next summer for hopefully three weeks. The beaches are beautiful, the food is amazing and the people are super nice.
Why do you love 360? 360 has always hit the nail on the head from their first day. They produce a quality product and their fit is always perfect. Women never have enough cashmere and 360 always knows exactly what a women wants and needs in her wardrobe.
