Los Angeles’ fashion capital status grows more assured by the season. Now, Alex Mill founder Alex Drexler is moving parts of his production to Los Angeles, starting with a collection of Made in LA Tees, which retail for $55 each. Naturally, we took the occasion to grill him for some tourist info.
Alex, what inspired the move?
I love L.A., and we have great retail accounts there, including Mohawk General Store and Unionmade. I can easily visit the factories in person and develop new product with a hands on approach. That motivated me to explore producing more product in Los Angeles. I’m now spending between three and four weeks a year there.
I discovered am amazing pigment dye technique at a great factory. The pigment dye produces this perfect washed color that fades over time, which I love. What are your favorite haunts in the city these days?
