An Inspiring Comeback Story

Interview with Stylish Entrepreneur Lisa Kline

We’ve all had our ups and downs in life… it’s inevitable. Whether you’re working towards your goals and dreams or if you’ve already met them, the trials and tribulations of life simply become part of your journey. The key is to not get discouraged, but find different ways to be a better version of yourself, create even bigger goals for yourself, maybe even re-invent an old idea you had and make it something even more compelling.

That’s exactly what entrepreneur and style expert Lisa Kline did.

Lisa Kline opened her flagship store in 1995 and was a trusted style source for many actors, recording artists, and celebrity clients selling the hottest trends and putting brands on the map for almost 2 decades. Due to some personal reasons, she closed the last of her 6 stores in 2012.

Influential Retailer Lisa Kline Back in Game

It’s been almost a decade since Lisa Kline, one of the giants of Los Angeles boutique retail, closed her influential bricks-and-mortar Lisa Kline stores, which did business on Robertson Boulevard, as well as in Beverly Hills, Calif., and Malibu, Calif.

Despite her shops’ defining an era of West Coast-casual styles, Kline bid farewell to bricks-and-mortar retail because competition coming from digital commerce, department stores, fast fashion and off-price retailers was too harsh. Consumer behavior had become too unpredictable.

“There’s no rhyme or reason to the way people shop in the bricks-and-mortar world,” she told California Apparel News in August 2011. “It is sporadic and unpredictable. You could predict in the old days.”

Second Act

When the boutique pioneer who put Robertson Boulevard on the map closed shop, some wondered, Where did Lisa Kline go? Here’s the answer.

Ever since Lisa Kline was a fashion-obsessed nine-year-old living in Encino, she dreamed of opening her own clothing store. Diagnosed with scoliosis, she was confined by a back brace and a wardrobe of elastic waistbands, while classmates flaunted the latest designer jeans. “I lived for fashion and couldn’t wear any of it,” says Kline. “I was tortured.” At 25 she opened her first boutique on Robertson Boulevard. Celebrities and label hounds came in droves to the little-known street to snatch up soon-to-break brands. By 2006, she had five stores, all in Los Angeles. Then in 2009, at the height of the recession, her husband died in an accident at their Malibu home and her businesses began to fail. “It was an implosion,” says Kline, who closed all her stores except the men’s shop.
