Because Bay Area style is never out of season.

The minds of Erica Tanov, Ariel Clute, and Allie Frank have come together to execute separate collections so brilliantly Bay Area, we're lusting for it. Entitled, 'The Summer Collection' the band of gals took to the earthy roots to fabricate a line that is very in the now. Expect ocean like blues, hand-dyed fabrics, and recyclable rope accessories. 

Erica Tanov, a Bay Area darling, has just released her denim and linen line that's all about sustainability and craftsmanship of the garment.

Ariel Clute worked with Erica to create one-of-a-kind tassel necklaces inspired by the colors and textures of the current ET collections. While Allie Frank worked with soft lambskin and cloth, folding and tying it into unique pattern formations, then dyeing it in a bath of natural indigo dye. The striking blue and white leather is sewn into a variety of zippered bags and clutch purses to pair with all the items beautifully.

And as a way to celebrate, the gals are inviting you to be apart of this collaborative moment. They will be holding a pop-up party at Erica Tanov's Berkeley storefront for all to try-on, mingle, and be merry.
