5 Perfect Pieces ... that will add some LA to your style
By Anikó Legner
Endless sunshine, mild winters, and a flourishing creative scene that builds upon local design and curated, conscious choices — we’ve been dreaming of LA for many reasons. And while we are putting off our next visit for a bit longer, we couldn’t resist making up our ideal wardrobe to help you channel some Californian vibes wherever you are.
J.Hannah, Glacé Hoop Earrings
We see right through you—some lucite little hoops from LA-based jewelry designer J.Hannah look dainty and make a statement all at the same time. Tuck your sun-kissed hair behind your ears and let the afternoon light twinkling inside of these clear quartz stones do the talking.
Samuji, Flora Hat
Protecting your skin against large amounts of harmful sun exposure is the perfect excuse to invest in a fancy hat. This sculptural number from Samuji does far more than simply shield you from impending heatstrokes—we imagine that even a stroll down the street to the post office will feel sophisticated under it, and recommend you get creative to find occasions for wearing this piece that go beyond beach lounging!
Monogram, Motion Of The Ocean Fine Gauge Classic Fit
If you are not located around one of the vintage shopping havens such as LA, and have had no luck finding the perfectly fitted, perfectly worn-in vintage t-shirt at your local thrift store, we have a solution. Meet Monogram, who have taken it upon themselves to create perfect vintage-inspired t-shirts made in California. Even if you are nowhere close to the ocean, this easy-going graphic tee will make you forget all about it and enjoy the breeze.
Reformation, Macgraw Jean in Chesapeake
No west coast musings could possibly feel complete without some good, throw-on-and- go denim. The most versatile and ubiquitous of all legwear takes you through a day of lazy lounging, socialising and gallery hopping. This very pair was designed and manufactured in Los Angeles, and belongs to Reformation’s semi-permanent jeans collection. Sporting a modernised 70’s flare with a flattering high rise, these will take you far further than just through the summer.
LOQ, Carmen in Kiwi, Martini or Burdeos
The muted colours of these perfectly elegant LOQ shoes remind us of Le Corbusier palettes and sparks desires of taking a day off to explore galleries and museums. How about you take them for a trip to the Griffith Observatory or the Getty Center? Or, if you find yourself elsewhere, introduce them to your local art scene—these shoes are true Los Angelenites after all, having been designed there and then consciously manufactured in España.
