Just Modern

Not long after starting an online business offering midcenturyinspired furniture and home accessories, Palm Springs couple Chris Mobley and Stewart Penn opened a store in the heart of Palm Springs Uptown Design District to show off their merchandise. Walls of glass and a minimalist look provide the ideal setting to showcase their distinctive rugs, pots and planters, indoor and outdoor furniture, lighting, and various other home décor items.

Mr. Cox

Discover a fashion gem tucked away in downtown Palm Springs’ Palm Canyon Galleria. Patrons of this retail jewel describe it as a ’60s boudoir. Offering vintage clothing and accessories from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s sourced by owner Amy Cox, the store features an assortment of goods for men and women. Mr. Cox is named for Amy’s father, who taught his daughter early on how to find and appreciate fun, interesting treasures found at secondhand stores. The selection, which includes Dior, Galanos, Pucci, Gucci, Tom Ford, Hermes, Giorgio Sant’ Angelo, Pierre Cardin, and more, changes almost daily.

MacMillan's Resort Wear

MacMillan’s Resort Wear

A dazzling assortment of resort-styled clothing beckons at this longtime retail staple in Palm Springs. Owner Arthur MacMillan started his business in 1994 after moving to the desert and “needing a job.” He had no idea what he was getting into, he says. MacMillan started with women’s resort clothing, concentrating on famous floral prints associated with Hawaii. He added menswear after realizing that the desert was ideally suited for his style of clothing. Although his vast collection of Hawaiian shirts and blouses are his stock in trade, he also offers a wide selection of dresses, pants, shorts, and bathing suits — most of which are available from extra small to plus sizes. MacMillan’s customers range from visiting hipsters who love the Hawaiian flair to locals who wouldn’t think of tucking in a shirt.
