Statement Necklaces From Ermie

Statement Necklaces From Ermie 1

Ermie is an LA clothing brand from Jennifer Parry Dodge. The project started as a blog but eventually evolved into a collection of wearable items. Ermie’s style is very California cosmic with lots of faded indigos, sunset tones, and desert flower hues. Aside from their dresses, tees, and blankets, Ermie makes some pretty rad statement necklaces that look like these little art pieces you can wear around the neck. They all kind of look they’ve come from a lost California desert tribe obsessed with leathers and ceramics.

Perusing her Fall 2013 collection, there is a playfulness and sarcasm present in all of the looks. They’re nice looking–but they do not take themselves to seriously. To help embody Allegra’s Fall 2013 vibe, the brand released a video directed by Steven Johnson (Allegra’s boyfriend, funny enough.) and Margo Ducharme that sees model Olga Nazarova and YACHT‘s Claire Evans totally slapping the shit out of each other for two minutes.

Albert Roman Does California

Albert Roman Does California 2

Last Friday morning we had the unique opportunity to speak at an Art Center photography class about branding and marketing for artists. It was a small class and we got to share the speaking privileges with Vince of Sinclair Denim. A class from FIDM even stopped by to listen in, toos! It was so fun. There were so many fantastic photographers we got to meet and we had a blast hanging out with all of them. We also got to check out and critique a branding exercise they did that involved their transforming small boxes into little portfolios. Everyone did an excellent job and we even got to keep one: photographer Albert Roman gave us his little box as he thought it would be valuable to us since his work deals with Los Angeles. Of course we had to share it!
