June gloom has hit Los Angeles a bit early this year. While others around the country are preparing for Summer us Angeleno’s are using this gloomy weather as an opportunity to take advantage of the trench trend.
Irene Neuwirth Turquoise Ring Matches, $1609 also love these Gumball Opal Earrings. I stopped into the new Capitol x Irene Neuwirth store at the Brentwood Country Mart and fell in love with Irene’s Gumball Collection. For those you not in LA you can see some of it at Matches Fashion.
No matter where I go I’m always scouting fashion. That was the case this weekend when I was in West Hollywood gazing out the car window soaking up the street style fashion. I spotted this women in a classic blue button down, jeans, and a yellow sweater throw over her shoulders. She was the inspiration for the above look. I love mixing pops of color with classic dressing.
According to Vogue there are nine celebrity approved brands that made it big this year. I’ve narrowed down the list with my favorite from 2018.
Doen – who wasn’t jumping for joy when Doen decided to have a long term pop-up at the Brentwood Country Mart this year, and if things couldn’t get any better they had a giant sample sale where we could all stock up on well priced goodies. Katherina and Margaret Kleveland are designing practical bohemian prairie inspired styles that can be worn day and night. Lily Aldridge is a fixture on Doen’s instagram modeling their beautiful dresses. I love thisthis,this, and this from the current line. Bird at the Platform in Culver City has a large selection of Doen until January 5th.
By Far – Bulgarian footwear brand By Far was founded in 2016 and has high-profile fans. Their contemporary, elegant shapes are all handmade in a family run factory from a mix of premium and sustainable Italian leathers and suede. They have been spotted on the feet of Aimee Song, the Hadids, and Jenners. I like this, this, and this from their line.
Veja – Is a French brand with focus on fair trade and environmentally responsible suppliers. These sneakers are being spotted around the globe. It didn’t hurt that Megan Markle choose to wear them on her recent trip to Australia. I’m a fan of these.
Medea – Medea is the brain child of artists, models, and twin sisters Giulia and Camilla Venturini. This new Milan based brand is set to have the next IT bag! Click here to check it out.
