Emily Current and Meritt Elliott are Los Angeles-based stylists also known for cult-favorite denim line, Current/Elliott. Now, they're Chic-ing with us on a weekly basis. Joy! This week, they write a love letter to Vivienne Westwood, who opened her Los Angeles boutique last week.

 

"Dear Dame Vivienne Westwood,

 

Welcome to the West Coast! Isn't it warm and beautiful here?! Your store is divine. We are smitten with the stunning rooftop deck, the unapologetic pink neon sign, and the simple fact we can walk there from our houses. We perused your new mecca and relished in your signature, oh-so-flattering corseted dresses with draping and gathering that is so mindfully strategic! You are a master at dressmaking. We marveled over the different iterations of your iconic pirate boot and texted ourselves reminders to come back over when the registers are open! It was also a treat to check out your collaboration with LEE jeans. We really must say the store opening was brilliant, but the private after-dinner at the Chateau was even better! It was a cacophony of wondrous things—your tangerine-colored hair and floor-length crochet dress (drool), the decadent lemon tart that was served for dessert, the fragrant fuschia sweet peas as centerpieces, and a perfectly styled Dita Von Teese sipping rosé and adjusting her lace-brimmed hat (with a dapper male friend saddled up on her arm.). Sigh...the sweetest sort of a Thursday that lifelong Vivienne fans could ask for.

 

With Love and Style,

Your new friends and neighbors,

Emily + Meritt
