Tell us about the spring collection.
Architect Rudolph Schindler was the greatest source of inspiration. We shot the Spring/Summer 2017 look book at the Schindler House in West Hollywood, which actually set the tone for our previous home. It was also the starting point for this collection. His architecture is modern with lots of concrete, but it’s earthy and organic at the same time. The architect and his wife moved up to Northern California and started a community for artists. The coastal landscape and the idea of these amazing artists forging their way were always in my mind.
Do you design for yourself?
Definitely, but I consider how I fit into a broader picture. While I design things I want to wear, other women need bra-friendly tops or want a longer sleeve—everyone’s different. I try to give options.
What’s a typical day like for you?
Every day is different. I have a lifestyle site, Rip & Tan, and I try to find a balance so that I can be a hands-on mom and enjoy life. We’re all busy and stressed, but filling your day with thoughtful details—from how you set the table to the food you cook—can feel special. Those are the details that make me happy and inspired.
