The New Guard

by C California Style

Three L.A. brands to watch:

Former Alexander Wang intern Lulu Chang has found her voice with The Fashion Club (thefashionclublabel.com). Shaina Mote (shainamote.com) incorporates cupra, a Japanese silk substitute made from birch pulp, into her arsenal of simple pieces inspired by Merce Cunningham’s choreography. And the free-spirited ’70s informed “Summer Nights,” the second collection from C / Christ (cchristla.com).
