For his spring 2014 runway show, acclaimed American designer Tommy Hilfiger made his Los Angeles crush official by creating a collection completely inspired by the West Coast's surf culture. His wife Dee shares the same sentiment, producing a new range for her Dee Ocleppo bag label that oozes Cali appeal. You can shop it at her exclusive trunk show pop-up at Saks Beverly Hills.
"We have an incredibly loyal customer base in LA and our spring collection, inspired by the yellow sunshine and colorful vistas of Mustique, is perfect for the LA weather!" Dee tells us. "We travel to LA quite frequently, and it is one of my favorite places to go vintage shopping. I don't think that LA is becoming a fashion capital, I think it has always been a fashion capital. From its Hollywood presence to its laid-back beach lifestyle, LA has always had a strong influence on not only fashion but popular culture as a whole."
Shop the Dee Ocleppo pop-up at Saks this Friday, April 24th through Sunday, April 26th from 10am to 7pm.
