Melissa Akkaway Launches Beckley by Melissa

beckley-by-melissaBeckley by Melissa, conceived by Beckley’s Melissa Akkaway, is a versatile and varied collection that emphasizes “fabric and fit.”

“A well-made piece can give you the ability to wear anything from a T-shirt and leather leggings to a black cocktail dress with style and ease,” says Melissa Akkaway. She should know: She’s sold upscale contemporary clothing to the chic LA girl at her West Hollywood boutique, Beckley, since it opened in 2008. Having “shopped collections from around the globe” in her role as boutique owner, Akkaway was inspired to create Beckley by Melissa, a versatile and varied collection that emphasizes “fabric and fit.” “I wanted Beckley by Melissa to feel like you were shopping in your coolest friend’s closet,” she explains. The line features staples that range from casual, such as loose striped tees, to formal, including a sheer black bow-tie frock and a dress that suggests a pattern of leopard spots with lace. Prices for the items, available at Beckley, range from $40 to $650. 8620 Melrose Ave., West Hollywood, 310.652.3500.
