Concept Store Find: Please Do Not Enter Los Angeles

In deep and darkest Downtown Los Angeles, or so the Westside would have you believe, resides the tallest and brightest concept store in the city. Perched on the twelfth floor in the historic Pacific Mutual Building on Pershing Square, little will prepare visitors to the light-filled boutique-cum-gallery.

Glass partitions and polished concrete frame the collection of luxury lifestyle goods and fashion curated by French founders Nicolas Libert and Emmanuel Renoird. Craftsmanship is the essence of Please Do Not Enter’s retail experience and this is reflected from desk stationery by Japanese papermaker Ito Bindery through to large-scale contemporary art sculpture by Arik Levy.

The collection features unique or limited edition products as well as international and US-exclusives. While the concept store largely caters for the modern man, the varied collection by artisans and designers – including Misericordia, Le Gramme and Kobja – will also attract female customers with a penchant for adventure. After all, Please Do Not Enter is all about tempting our inner rebel, in the most tasteful way possible.

Please Do Not Enter is available to visit by appointment.
