We chat with Nicolas Bijan, scion of the eponymous boutique, about how the 1% shops now.
One summer, when he was 16 years old, Nicolas Bijan Pakzad was working alongside his father at his luxury men’s boutique on Rodeo Drive. The shop, known simply as Bijan—and often referred to as the most expensive shop in the world—was slow that particular afternoon. Nicolas recalls, however, that in a sudden flurry, five Suburbans pulled up, secret service agents descended and President George Bush Sr. materialized. Despite the distinguished guest, he remembers that his father was bereft: He hadn’t worn a tie that day.

Stains are the bane of many a designer bag addict’s life – they are impossible to completely avoid unless the only reason you bought that pricey tote is to keep it in its dust bag at home.
While nothing beats a professional cleaning, sometimes, a few common household items may be all you need to save that expensive purchase from being marred by makeup, ink, food or wine.
On an otherwise still morning near Mount St. Helens’ Johnston Ridge Observatory, it was hard to miss the sound of more than 100 motorcycle engines raring up Spirit Lake Memorial Highway.
