After decamping from Lucky Brand, two years ago Piper Gore ventured out on her own accord, launching a namesake line that channels life in Los Angeles. Capturing mellow adaptations of trends in a modern yet effortless manner, this local designer was recently scooped up by Shopbop and Satine in Venice, with a keen eye on her Scarlett Leather Shorts, which are comfy enough to sleep in.
Priced from $100 -$200 with the exception of leather pieces, the line is feminine with an edge and just the slightest hint of boho, coveted by the likes of style setters Alessandra Ambrosio and Julianne Hough. Gore's Spring '14 collection (pictured above) brings the leather from color block shorts to a perforated jumper, with playful bursts of color and at least a drop of tie-dye.
