Djuna Bel Owns Jimi Hendrix’s Leather Jacket & So Much Gucci

You have to see her outdoor marble tub, too.

Djuna Bel is a classic Coveteur case. Let us explain:Not only did we stumble on the 6' New York native in one of our time-honored IG black holes—it was her ’70s-slash-punk-slash-L.A. sartorial sway and her frolicking adventures across the world that got our attention—but it was what happened a week after we got in touch with her that really sealed the deal. You see, it was on a particularly Gucci-filled shoot with Bel’s best friend, model Camille Rowe, that Rowe regaled us with stories about the time Bel got dressed in a skintight Elvis suit and the two of them got *really* married at the White Chapel in Vegas, yes, because they love each other as friends, but also as a sort of symbol that love is love and anyone should be able to marry anyone they choose. Now you get what we mean by Coveteur material, right?

So when Bel, a model-slash-former vintage store owner-slash-stylist-slash-all-around cool (and nicest) person, let us into the custom-redone hillside home in L.A. she shares with her artist fiancé, Nikolai Johannes Haas (1/2 of Haas Brothers), it was everything we hoped for...and more. There was a solid marble outdoor tub! A sunken living room! And outdoor sofa, surrounded by dozens of cacti, with Haas Brother wooden legs. Every inch of her space was thought-out, creative, whimsical, and elegant with nods to that ’70s vibe extended from her wardrobe.

There was a leather jacket from the same era that was once owned by Jimi Hendrix; the multiple feathery coats, an ode to ’70s glamour; and then the collection of band tees and easy, very L.A.-appropriate jumpsuits she punctuates with Gucci loafers and CHANEL gold chain belts. All of it made for one of our favorite shoots yet. Just see it for yourself below and shop her style here.
