Leave it to the cool girls behind Day Space Night to create a work wear collection that derives inspo from "90s R&B groups, Mexican grocery stores, and Tibetan monks." The LA-based label, who's previously released a few other runs of rad clothing — including its first all-linen work wear line earlier this year — just added a new crop of stylish utilitarian gear to their online shop.
Much like their last work wear collection, the Tibetan-inspired coat, apron dress, slouchy pant, and oversized shirt dress are all made of breathable linen fabric, and come complete with generous pockets which come in handy for the creative working set. And besides being offered in neutral shades like black and flax, there's also a vibrant green and a fine plaid pattern, all of which can be mixed and matched together or styled separately with your own fave pieces.
One of the beautiful things about DSN is that their collections are created in limited runs to save on resources and minimize waste, but that also means if you want to snag one of these styles, you better act quickly. If you prefer IRL shopping, designers Samantha Margherita and Kris Chau are celebrating the launch with a bash at their Chinatown studio (1727 N Spring Street) this Friday from 7pm to 10pm, where in addition to purchasing pieces, you can check out Chau's new series of erotica artwork. Okay, we're sold.
