I can never tell in L.A., but technically it’s still winter. Still time for hats n’ scarves n’ boyfriend coats n’ layering (aka leggings). I pulled these oldie but goodie Black Milk leggings out for a playshoot and I’m wondering why I ever stopped wearing them. They fit like a dream and it’s no wonder. Designer James Lillis did a gabazillion cut, sew, and repeats until they were PERFECT.
The Black Milk website has BLOWN UP. I remember when Black Milk was a blog with a few items on sale, made to order. Now it’s a real company (like one for grown ups) and people work for him (like a lot of people). It’s IMPRESSIVE and INSPIRING. Think, once this guy was an odd jobber surviving on mangoes with a side of ramen. Now, he’s a designer and business owner. It took time, sacrifice and struggle, but I’m sure in the end it was all worth it. Good on ya mate.
Special s/o goes to Miss A and The Hub Factory for letting me using their space. xoxo!
