Speaking about the anniversary, Erik Laykin said, "It's an incredible feeling to have reached this milestone. We are proud to have been a part of the artistic expression of Los Angeles for ninety years and to have served so many generations of Angelinos. When my great great grand parents came to Los Angeles in the 1800’s and settled in what would eventually become Little Tokyo, they immediately focused on planting deep roots in the community. Through hard work they were able to establish an enduring legacy which we take great care to nurture and preserve. We look forward to continuing to serve our clients and to providing them with exceptional quality and service for many more years to come."
The ninetieth anniversary of Laykin et Cie is not only a celebration of the brand’s rich legacy but also a testament to its enduring commitment to excellence and innovation.
