LIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL FÜL

As much as we profess our love for designer labels, like Saint Laurent and Acne Studios, which have reached international acclaim, both Martin and I are continually amazed by what some LA-based, menswear designers are doing right in our very own backyard. Alejandro Rodriguez, founder and creative director of the

Beautiful Fül

, is one who makes us particularly proud. There is an unmistakable charisma and simplicity to his clothes that are readily accessible to anyone who walks through his rustic, lived-in store in the heart of Downtown LA. We personally love it for Alejandro's expert use of fabrics, typically a blend of Tencel and Japanese cotton, which make the clothes breathable and lightweight. The unexpected, extended hem details that you find in the everyday basics, like the grey shirt I am wearing, will elevate your style game in an instant! Featuring a range of basics and statement jackets,

the complete SS14 collection can be found, entirely shoppable

, on their website.

. . .

That said, I also wanted to take this opportunity to announce that my boyfriend, Martin, who's been mostly behind-the-scenes, will now be joining me and the team to explore, discover and highlight more exciting brands and services we want to personally introduce you to! He'll be specifically creating another set of social media accounts for our joint venture together, so be sure to follow him there when it all goes live!
