If you love the ultra-cool, ultra-minimal vibe of LA-born lines like Cerre and Building Block, meet Objects Without Meaning.

Founded by Alexandra Michelle in 2011, the men's and women's brand is carried at a handful of sleek retailers across the globe, including Mohawk General Store, Mohawk Man and Steven Alan Annex in LA, Personnel of New York (the store owner even gave them a shout-out here), United Arrows in Tokyo and Hartwood in Australia. Edgy e-tailer Need Supply are also big fans.

Explore OWM's Stella Berkofsky-lensed lookbook called "O-M SS-MMXIV" after the jump (highlights include breathable linen knits, cotton gauze, lightweight Italian suede, denim and their signature silken Cupro fabric) and shop the brand's current sale here.
