In the Spotlight: Mark & Estel

Mark & Estel is one of my all-time favorite clothing labels, indie or otherwise. They encompass that effortless, laid back LA vibe, constructing tees, tanks and dresses in soft cotton jersey. Their designs run the gamut--from swingy tanks to kimono sleeve tees to ripped & destroyed dresses and leggings--and they did it way before all the current worn-in designer tees were "in." Their clothes are all hand crafted and purposely constructed to look and feel like that perfect old t-shirt it took you years to break in.

These cool kids from LA model all their own designs (well, Estel models the clothes and Mark hangs out nonchalantly in the photos--so cute!).

Music lovers should check out their tunes, a unique electronic-pop-rock that's always on my playlist.

I own several of their pieces but this gorgeous cotton jersey ripped dress from their couture collection is still on my must-have list. Each dress is carefully sculpted with distressed and ripped detail around the neckline and all over front & back of dress to accent the body. Each one is uniquely hand-made byMark & Estel. No two are exactly alike (which I love).

You can purchase the line directly from their website. These pieces will be in your closet for years to come!
