Yesterday we took you inside Emily Current's Los Angeles pad - the former half in CURRENT/ELLIOTT. But as we learned, what would Current be without Elliott (and vice versa)? So, today, we ventured to Meritt Elliott's home and closet and played dress up.... with the help of a few naked Barbie and Ken dolls (in some killer gems nonetheless). As one half of power styling duo MAUDE and the latter half in our favorite denim line CURRENT/ELLIOTT, we had a feeling that the insides of Meritt's closet wouldn't disappoint - and it didn't. Spearheading the "boyfriend jean" craze, these two met each other while attending school in California and realized their penchant (and innate skill) to make girls look powerful and beautiful in boundary-pushing clothes. Just check the pages of NYLON Magazine and the style of Mary Kate Olsen and Reese Witherspoon for reference. We share a joint love for Vanessa Bruno (Meritt's home is walking distance from her LA shop) and have a mutual love for killer motorcycle jackets. As a denim aficionado, she's obsessed with proportion and washes - as evident by her towering collection of vintage blues (ask her and she will tell you - "Denim is my second skin"). Her collection of Repetto's (she has these flats in every color) and vintage slips from The Rose Bowl Flea are only complimented by her anecdotes around her house inspired by her 5 year old daughter Lyric, who acts as Meritt's muse – and it’s no surprise she’s a mini fashionista… her mom has been heralded as a top influential stylist. But behind her YSL bags and Chloe pumps, we spotted an erinkleineberg navy top that Meritt rocked during last years FNO – much to our delight. Her chilled-out LA pad mixed with her beautiful treasures made for one picturesque Cali afternoon. From our world to yours, take a peek inside Meritt Elliott’s fashionable den.
