Edgy Blazers Pay Tribute to Rock ‘n’ Roll

by C California Style

It began as an homage to Guns N’ Roses

What began as a pair of custom, structured “Balmain-esque” wool blazers emblazoned with epaulets and original artwork in a graphic homage to Guns N’ Roses quickly grew by word-of-mouth into Tribute Project, launching online this month. The collection of one-of-a-kind bombers, admiral jackets and blazers by Santa Barbara-based founders Jules Allen and Dani Stone—whose friendship was forged through their mutual love of music and the killer fashion that accompanies it—is a wearable ode to songs and artists. Couture options are carefully deconstructed vintage designer finds refashioned with custom linings, lyrics and artwork. From $695; tributeproject.net.
