The North Robertson Boulevard store houses the entire array of Hilfiger products amid design elements that reflect its Hollywood backdrop. “There’s a VIP fitting room featuring a rotating display of iconic celebrity pieces from our vintage archives,” he says.
Scene: “The patio at the Chateau Marmont. There’s always a cool mix of people; it’s a great atmosphere.”
Hote: “The Peninsula in Beverly Hills. The rooms feel like a home away from home.”
Restaurant: “If I’m traveling with my wife, Dee, we usually head to Madeo for lunch right after we check in.”
