Recess 111 La Brea Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90036

Since opening its doors in 2013, Recess quickly became recognized for a curated, unique assortment of fun vintage and contemporary finds. Recess contains a collection of pieces spanning from the 20’s to present, including unique haute couture, non-designer, and global finds.

Recess is an extension of owner Marie Monsod’s signature eclectic style. Monsod felt the rising demand for unique, reasonably-priced vintage designer items, and sources to bridge the gap between couture gowns and rock t-shirts. Recess aims to keep merchandise both aspirational and affordable, and focuses on keeping customers happy. Recess is a resource for designers, stylists, costumers, and fashion insiders looking to draw design inspiration. Visitors to Recess come from across the US and around the world.
