So I adore Decades. It is a shop on Melrose in Los Angeles that has the most fabulous new and vintage collection EVER. Imagine if you’re Catherine Deneuve or Angelica Huston and you are interested in passing along a few pieces from your closet to people who will appreciate them properly: both of them did this through Decades. Have a few Birkins you’re tired of seeing unused in your closet? Send them to Decades. If you’re Julia Roberts or Angelina Jolie and you want something fabulous for the red carpet, look no further.
Owner Cameron Silver is adorable and so funny and dramatic, and he’s an old friend of mine. I’ve known Cameron since we were 18 years old and he lived in his parents pool house in Beverly Hills and I lived down the street. I adored him then and am happy to cheer on his success. If you want to laugh till your stomach hurts, watch Bravo’s reality tv show of Cameron and his business partner, Christos called “Dukes of Melrose.” Even my husband loved the show! Cameron is also obsessively passionate about Hermes and this is a hilarious clip of him showing off his custom Hermes collection (and you’ll see why he’s a top name in fashion).
Time magazine also recognized his talent for fashion and named him one of the “25 Most Influential Names and Faces in Fashion” in 2002. He is currently traveling all over the world promoting his exquisite book, Decades, but you can shop at the store online, or call the shop and tell them what you’re looking for and see if they have it. My favorite salesperson there is Marcus.
