About Town: Derek Mattison
Menswear designer Derek Mattison got his start by putting his personal touch on blazers he bought from Jill Sander, Dior and Tom Ford. After altering them to create an entirely new piece, Mattison knew it was time to start his own line. Though you’ll rarely find him away from the helm of his eponymous Melrose Place store (all of his pieces are made locally, then numbered and signed), these are some of the CA places he’ll go to escape:
MATTISON I wanted to create a high-end user experience–a relaxed atmosphere where clients feel special.
J.F. CHEN The best vintage furniture.
POST RANCH INN This place is heaven. Period.
INK.SACK It’s a stone’s throw from the shop, and the pulled pastrami sandwich is the best.
GRAFFITI SUBLIME COFFEE You walk in for the first time and think, “Is this a club or a coffee shop?”
