Wandering with Baja East


One thing that’s easy to take for granted about Baja East is that designers Scott Studenberg and John Targon will continue to deliver the kind of luxurious, leisure-bent clothes that are perfectly okay to bum around in. The label’s Spring/Summer ’16 collection took their pansexual take on Southern Californian surf rat and stoner-wear onto a higher plane of elegant global nomadism, beginning with an electric palette of brightly saturated red, crisp white, teal, and painterly tie-dye prints. Much attention was also given to refining drapey sportswear into roomy trousers, fluid caftans, and a louche take on the blazer, while knit drawstring pants, serapes, and overalls maintained the LVMH prize nominees and CFDA Vogue/Fashion Fund finalists’ signature earthy-cool vibe.
