Calle Del Mar
Calle Del Mar is a Brooklyn-based brand with a serious West Coast feel. Designer Aza Ziegler draws influence from ‘60s and ‘70s vintage surf and skate culture, The Beach Boys, and vintage U.S.-made athletic wear to create pieces that are effortless, yet still very feminine. For the spring 2016 collection, you can expect everything from imaginative, sequin-filled textiles to vintage-inspired knits to wave-emblazoned mini dresses.
