Tommy Perse
Owner of Maxfield LA

Fashion , Retail

The man behind conceptual Los Angeles boutique Maxfield, Tommy Perse has given everyone from Giorgio Armani to Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo a lift over the years, providing an American platform for the avant-garde alongside the West Hollywood stalwart’s own eclectic mix of vintage handpicks.Now in its fifth decade, the internationally renowned outfit has continued to be a SoCal-based champion for the boundary-pushing fashion-forward. 2017 saw Perse and company pick up right where they left off in 2016, following last year’s Fear of God-led “Chapel of God” launch and Off-White pop-up with the exclusive release of Jerry Lorenzo’s all-black Military Sneakers, a temporary Vetements “DRY CLEANING” space, a Gosha Rubchinskiy x Daft Punk collab, and a “Love Thy City” team-up with current collab king, Ronnie Fieg. Maxfield even linked up with the quintessential LA band, Guns N’ Roses (with a little help from Virgil Abloh, Palm Angels and more) before showcasing John Galliano’s Fall/Winter 2017 pieces with Maison Margiela’s “Artisinal” installation.
