I really don't know what to say about Maxfield...Whenever someone mentions the aforementioned business, I simply reply, "God, I hate Maxfield".
Why do I hate Maxfield?
It makes me broke. It is impossible not to fall in love with something in the store, and the worst part is.........it actually is "affordable"
Why do I hate Maxfield?
I have to ignore the fact that there is an A list celebrity shopping right next to me with his entourage..
Why else do I hate maxfield?
I don't. I love it. It's heaven. But please don't go because I want it all to myself.
Maxfield LA the west coast style Mecca – hello people!
I am a jewelry designer from Greece and I'm honored to be represented in the States by this amazing boutique. My brand is called after my name: Theodoros, and you can find my line at the jewelry section. It was a dream of me to present my collection to this retailer because the "noir" and dramatic ambient of this store is matching very closely my aesthetics as a designer. The people that work there are real artists of their own king! like Alfred, batman's loyal butler, these stylish people serving their guests in a very unique and honouring way.. If you are lucky enough, Luis the master of the floor will introduce you to Maxfield's world, it feels like a treasure hunt, this place is full of amazing little treasures that will blow your mind. Rare objects and artefacts from unexpected places of the world, that broadens the spectrum of thinking, it's like Noah's boat but for blessed objects instead for animals!
disappointed – I purchased two pairs of $350+ each sunglasses at Maxfield's and after five months of very light use one pair began to simply fall apart.
I took them to my eyeglass repair shop and was told that they were poorly manufactured and could not be repaired. "for what you paid you should return them" "this should not happen".
I took them back to Maxfield's and the sales associate said, "oh yes, the leather peels away....that happens with those" . The manager of the store was busy "helping" another customer with a product that also appeared to be falling apart.
When she finally approached me, she curtly stated that she would not take the glasses back. She claimed that they would glue them back together.
There is nothing worse than shopping at a high end store, spending top dollar on a product, not being able to return a product with a clear manufacturing defect and to be treated poorly by the management. i like this store and the products that they carry but with poor management like that I will shop elsewhere. Barney's and Neiman Marcus stand behind their merchandise and have classy management that treats their clientele appropriately. Maxfield's current management is a turn off. The glasses that I purchased there are garbage and not worth the price point.
DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE PEOPLE! THIS STORE IS DEPRESSING! – Let me first start by saying that, since when are CRYSTAL D*CK STATUES that are sold for thousands of dollars - a fashion commodity?.... Or a statue of a DEVIL F*CKING A GOAT?!?.... or a $30K ROLEX with a marijuanaa leaf on it.... WTF!!!! This store is for those WASHED OUT, STONER, MISERABLE RICH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO K1LL THEMSELVES & WANT TO WASTE THEIR MONEY....
The sales people are horrible at this store too, they follow you around like you're a thieff.... everything is extremely OVER-PRICED, most of the time you can find the same goods elsewhere for way less!
They do have this cool BRAND called MASTERMIND from JAPAN, cool stuff... But mostly everything else is depressing, over hyped, over priced, over washed up B.S. they're trying to sell you....
DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE PEOPLE!
The most unique store in Los Angeles. – You will literally find pieces here that you will not find anywhere else in the U.S! The prices are high but rightly so..if you want pieces that you are going to keep and have people comment on for the rest of your life then head here!
Fun accessories, crisp suits, and flirty frocks are the name of the game at this chic, well-priced West Hollywood boutique. – In Short
With dark wood floors and masses of gold leaves swooping across the ceiling, this flagship store is an enchanted forest for fashionistas tired of skyrocketing price tags. For career girls, there are trim suits with feminine details, soft blouses and armloads of prim ballet flats. And for after-work dates, there are sparkly cocktail dresses and spiky stilettos. No outfit is complete without accessories, and this boutique has them in spades: luxe leather handbags, oversized costume jewelry and old-Hollywood-inspired silk scarves.
best retail store – "This the definitely one of the best stores in Los Angeles. They have interesting, inspiring objects, clothing and accessories. if you are shopping in LA, this is a must."
Upscale, not touristy, amazing Hermes selection – This place is a gem in LA. The most impressive Hermes collection I have ever seen, vintage birkin bags....ahh I was in heaven. The staff was very helpful, offered me a bottle of water and showed me around the museum like store. Lots of stuff to see, be sure to at least have an hour on your hands to check out the interesting gothic like museum pieces such has a real shrunken head, and a real stuffed bat....If you know someone that has everything..this is the place to shop! Highly recommended!!!
Intimidatingly Complete – Maxfield's is a great store with an awesome selection of specialty items with beyond big ticket prices, including a $120K desk I saw there once. The minimalist concrete facade really does lend to a sense of intimidation and snobbiness. They have one window and it always has a great conversation starter of a display. I walked past it for years before I had the courage to enter it. When I finally did, everyone had a certain elitist, you better know why you are here look to them. Luckily I was surprised to find out that they were really nice people who once asked for help, provided amazing service. I prefer them to Neiman Marcus sales folk any day of the week. Maxfield's in my opinion is truly an acquired taste boutique. It's definately not for the tourists, and most people wont understand it either the concept of it either. However, if you want CDG, vintage Hermes, Prada not found at the Epicenter, or the entire D.L & Co collection including things they don't list on their website; don't be scared.
Expensive fashion and high-priced trinkets for those with discriminating taste and inexhaustible bank accounts. – In Short
This Melrose Place designer destination attracts a bounty of celebrity shoppers with ambience that's elegantly modern without veering into pretentious. A minimalist concrete facade conceals a tribal-influenced sculpture garden and an impressive selection of fashion and vintage home furnishings. Glass cases contain a trove of sleek jewelry and Cartier watches.
