If I were to say, “California is the _______ capital of the US”… How would you fill in the blank? Maybe sunshine, movie-making, Insta model, probably even avocado. Most would put all of this and maybe more before fashion and I’d probably agree. But the tide is turning quickly folks! A handful of California designers have set the tone for what we are seeing in men’s fashion these days & there are more on the rise. Needless to say, I was pumped when MR PORTER reached out to see if I’d be interested in styling a few pieces from their latest Made in California collection. The launch took place last week on MR PORTER and it features twelve contemporary brands that are “modern-day interpretations of surf, skate, street and casual wear”. The collection features some of my favorite brands – John Elliott, Simon Miller, Stussy, Golden Bear, James Perse. Check out the looks and then head over to see the rest, you won’t be disappointed.
