While normally it takes designers a few years of grind before they garner a true following, AGAIN has been successful from the get-go. Founded by Amber Kekich-Purling last fall, the LA-based brand's effortlessly cool aesthetic has quickly captivated a host of fashion influencers, including the Posso Girls, Haley Strode and costume design icon Roberta Haze.
We were again reminded of this burgeoning line's irresistible charm at yesterday's LAFC runway show at Carondelet House. For spring/summer 2013, Kekich-Purling presents a range of ruggedly romantic streetwear that bold gals like Rihanna and Chloë Sevigny would rock in a heartbeat.
Standouts included a wordy crop top and slit skirt combo, a blinding neon PVC moto, a black-and-white printed pantsuit, and super-sized platform boots by cult-favorite LA label UNIF.
