Hilary Justin's new denim brand, Bliss and Mischief is a dose of whimsy, with a shot of Western sensibility, and a side of impeccable craftsmanship. The vintage fabrics and classic pieces (including perfectly faded 501's, Japanese Kimonos, military jackets and jumpsuits) are reworked and embroidered into timeless fashions that are both modern and nostalgic. The line is an ode to California's true stripped-down style, a big step away from the perceived glitz and glam of Hollywood's red carpets. But it's not just West Coasters that are loving it, Style.com's Kristin Anderson is obsessed, and Vogue just named Bliss and Mischief a "Most Wanted" denim brand of the season.
It seemed fitting, in the midst of LA Fashion Week, to shoot the cactus covered denim in our Cactus Lounge and sun bled fabrics across our sun-filled pool deck.
