erin wasson x rvca


Looks from Erin Wasson's collection for RVCA.

Let me be blunt: I am obsessed with Erin Wasson. She's not only beautiful (a model who has appeared in Balenciaga and Revlon campaigns), but her tomboy/sexy/rocker style is insanely cool and she’s Alexander Wang's buddy/muse. Well, now Wasson is offering up her fashion skills to us, launching both a jewelry line, LowLuv, which accessorized Wang's shows in the past, and a new clothing line, a collaboration with skate and surf label, RVCA. And guess what? Shopbop is getting both!

Last night Morgan, Pa (SB assistant stylist), Joyann (watch for her guest post tomorrow!), and I went over to Milk Studios for the presentation of the Erin Wasson x RVCA collection, which was, in Wasson style, a full-on party. The entrance looked like a club with a long line, rather than an art gallery space. Once we got in we enjoyed seeing Erin running around looking gorgeous in all black and leopard shoes. Alex Wang was there, smiley as always, and the models were rocking the looks. The pieces are those perfect updated basics that make your look instantly cool. My favorite is the oversized white T-shirt that says “IF YOU AIN'T COWBOY, YOU AINT SH-T,” which seems to speak to the vibe of the whole collection.

We captured some photos while sipping on 100-proof vodka (one sip was plenty), tried to meet Erin (she was preoccupied), and went home for some sleep before another day of running around in heels.

Erin Wasson x RVCA and LowLuv will hit the site this September, so make sure you're doing the What's New check around that time!
