Banks Journal is pleased to announce the opening of their first retail store, located in downtown Los Angeles at the ROW DTLA.

The Banks Journal DTLA storefront is the brand’s first brick and mortar, blending clean and minimal aesthetics with natural materials near LA’s Arts District. Working with design firm West of West, the new space seeks to blend the sustainable clothing brand’s Australian and Japanese roots alongside it’s overall coastal influence and appeal. The store’s main attraction is an eye-catching ceiling installation constructed of 1000 linear feet of wood, inspired by traditional Japanese woodworking.

Says Banks Journal: “Opening our first retail location provides us an amazing opportunity to showcase our brand’s story of using sustainable and organic materials in a way that can relate to our customers. Working with West of West enabled us to have a heightened attention to design and detail for the store’s interior, something that we strive for with each garment we create.”

The 1,000 square foot retail space is housed in the historic 1900’s building previously inhabited by American Apparel. The area has now been repurposed into a modern shopping and dining experience known as The ROW DTLA. Alongside the Banks Journal clothing, the new flagship offers a curated selection of vintage rugs, vinyl, design books and products from like-minded brands.

Banks Journal DTLA is located at:


777 Alameda Street

Los Angeles, CA 90021
