Century City Shopping Center, with department stores like Bloomingdale's and Macy's, is considered Los Angeles' "only outdoor mall." Spain's Mango and Neiman Marcus' Cusp are worth exploring. Luxury labels like Tiffany and Louis Vuitton can also be found. Beauty brands include Acca Kappa, Aveda and The Art of Shaving. Madewell is one of the newer tenants and is billed as the younger sister to J.Crew. The name, inspired by the Madewell work-wear company in Bedford, MA, has been updated to offer women's casual sportswear accented with antique details for a modern twist. It is priced lower than J.Crew and the setting evokes more of an East Coast country house. The store product assortment includes apparel, outerwear and accessories.
