Bliss & Mischief Launches Denim

by C California Style

The L.A. label debuts the high-waisted denim we’ve all been waiting for

This article originally appeared in the March 2017 issue of C Magazine.

When apparel designer and vintage clothing collector Hillary Justin launched Bliss and Mischief in 2014, she set out to create a line “built around pieces you’d love so much that you’d want to save them.” Embroidered vintage denim and army jackets became signatures of the brand, until “it grew difficult to source the quality of vintage we needed,” explains Justin. Come spring, all pieces will be designed and produced exclusively by Bliss and Mischief in Downtown Los Angeles, including an all-cotton denim line fashioned from deadstock. “We call our first high-waist, straight-leg fit The Collector because I know it’s going to be the denim you collect and go back to for years to come.” blissandmischief.com.
