Where: East of Hollywood and south of Los Feliz, Silver Lake has been one of Los Angeles’ hipper neighbourhoods for a while now. Known for its laid-back, bohemian coffee shops, it's the area of the city where young artists and creative types gather to just like, hang out and stuff, man. Think artfully scruffy urbanites plotting new ideas while loading up on caffeine. Robert Pattinson likes to hang here, too, when in town.
Why: The Silver Lake trend is an homage to the uniform of rebellious creativity. Yes, it’s steeped in sportswear references, but whereas previously your dad’s old Oxford shirt might have been seen as effortless, nowadays the art of looking cool while looking you’re not trying to lies in 90s-style, sports-inspired items.
Wear: Oversized hockey tops, loose-fit denim with denim shirts on top, T-shirts or sweaters with 90s sportswear-style logos. Anything that looks like it could have been worn to a PE lesson 20 years ago.
Watch: Old episodes of Beverly Hills 90210 or old re-runs of MTV shows The Real World or House Of Style.
Listen: The new breed of young music producers bursting out of Los Angeles, like Ariel Rechtshaid, the production brains behind Sky Ferreira, Haim and more. Dev Hynes – aka Blood Orange – has been known to hang out in Silver Lake, and his album evokes a suitably retro, sun-bleached vibe.
Visit: The Satellite, formerly (and more famously) known as Spaceland, is Silver Lake’s hippest music bar. Opened in 1995, the dive venue has played host to a panoply of indie rock favourites over the years, including local heroes like Beck, Silversun Pickups (named for a Silver Lake liquor store), Elliott Smith and Radar Bros.
