Robertson Blvd. is home to many shops that target the chosen few, and a few chains that target the many, but truly only Kitson carries something for everyone. High end Marc Jacobs tote? They've got it. Lower priced coin purse decorated with celebrity mug shots? They've got that, too. The Kitson buyers have a wonderfully irreverent sense of humor, but like all good satirists, they make sure they know their source material before they start having fun with it. This is Kitson's strength: they're a cheat sheet for what's trending now -- or what will be trending three months from now. They don't carry entire designer collections, but they hone in on the breakout pieces you'll see at the mall in six months. Their gifts and books tend to work on multiple levels: Sure, the retro Pop Phone handset looks like a novelty as you plug it into your iPhone 4, but then you learn that the handset's design actually eliminates 99% of the radiation emitted by your cell phone. Fabulous, fun and functional! Just like Kitson.
