Look for the valet outside Howard Hughes's former headquarters, where the guard will escort you into a tony, clandestine complex that's equal parts boutique and art gallery. The largest room houses luxury labels (Valentino, Proenza Schuler, Yohji Yamamoto, Alexandre Vauthier) as well as one-of-a-kind jewelry (Cartier, Hermès) and paintings (an original Murakami—sorry, folks, it's not for sale). Exclusive collections are released throughout the year and include women's tuxedos by Pallas and bags from the Row, a collaboration with artist Damien Hirst. In the smaller room, glass cabinets hold gold Hoorsenbuhs jewelry along with G. Lorenzi knives and dice.
