The Atelier collection is where you'll find the heart, soul and DNA of Downtown Design League.
"OUR SIGNATURE MILLINERY COLLECTION
IS DESIGNED WITH A STRONG EMPHASIS
ON MODERN SCULPTURAL SHAPES
THAT ARE HAND-BLOCKED USING
OLD-WORLD MILLINERY TECHNIQUES."
By Amanda Montell
Positioned amidst the Toy Factory Lofts just a few doors down from Belgian cafe Little Bear, the curiously luxurious Downtown Design League boutique would be easy to miss. But those who luck upon double-taking into its floor-to-ceiling glass windows will spy a sophisticated retail space, featuring handcrafted clothing, shoes, leather goods and accessories, all of which are locally made. Downtown Design League’s creative team are palpably focused on their philosophy of creating luxury goods with both love and artistry. The atelier is open 12pm–8pm Tuesday - Saturday, but appointments are also available for those who’d like to discuss crafting their own custom Angeleno-made suede shoe, for example.
