 I love the California-sexy-surfer-girl vibe of this collection. Each piece was extra special with unexpected touches. An update to a denim vest, the Madison comes in white denim, with a bit of destruction for an grittier look. In the trend piece of the season (overalls!), the Rikki shortalls come with a cheeky cuffed edge, in an deep saturated black denim for a punk/skate chick take on the trend. We even styled this look back to a long board and spikey jewelry from Svelte Metals. My favorite piece from the collection? Easily the Jackson Romper. This piece was featured months ago in a pre-collection mailer from Bloomingdales, and the second I saw it, I knew I had to have it. Major thanks to the wonderful ladies at Paige Denim for all of the excellent pieces that brought this shoot to life!
