Peek Into a Private Historical Cultural Monument in LA and site of Bailey of Hollywood AW16 Campaign

    Every season, Bailey centers the theme of its lifestyle campaigns around elements that make the brand unique. For AW 16, Bailey returns to Los Angeles, home of the brand since 1922, to shoot at the Milbank Mansion in Hancock Park. Current owners Electra Vanderbilt McDowell and Peter Lang have painstakingly restored this jewel with no attention to detail spared. Thank you for allowing Bailey to shoot in such an incredible place.

Isaac Milbank was very involved in the development of the then budding neighborhood of Hancock Park in 1905. By 1913, he built Milbank Mansion to be his family home and soon became the soul of the neighborhood.
