DTLA LIFE MAG #28 | SUMMER 2016 - Page 58

MAHER, the highly anticipated women’s boutique on Hope Street has arrived, and it was worth the wait. The crack team of Amber Caplan and Blain Neyman have crafted an appealing selection of quality items for the creative woman who gravitates towards a contemporary, polished look. The name is Amber’s mother’s maiden name. The store is a soothing, understated combination of white and natural woods with an accent wall of custom marble paper. The clothes racks are fashioned out of lucite rods with gold-toned joints that spotlight the merchandise. An abundance of natural light and a heroic-sized mirror enhance the space. Curated from top Australian, European and U.S. labels, (Zuluand Zephyr, Alexis, Banner Day and Benjamin Jay and others) the store offers a spectrum of separates that will appeal to a variety of tastes and body types. Prices range from $8 -$10 for paper goods, $70 for tops, $200 for a dress and $800 for a leather jacket. These are quality items meant to be kept as wardrobe staples. Though the plan is to buy seasonally, many of their resources have monthly shipments, which means new items will arrive on a weekly basis. The merchandise is so on point it is as though you walked into your midsummer dream closet. Shoes, sunglasses, hats and handbags can finish a look while fragrances, candles, beach towels, stationery items and headphones make for excellent gifts.
