Cult Gaia - FALL 2021 READY-TO-WEAR
Cult Gaia’s Jasmin Larian is a barometer for mainstream fashion taste. Her brand started out with flower crowns in 2011 and expanded to small sculptural bags and quirky heeled shoes and sandals; now she has a full ready-to-wear range. Larian’s clothes have already (pun intended) found a cult following amongst Los Angeles’s most beautiful people: Her slinky dresses are worn by Chrissy Teigen and Romee Strijd. For fall, even the most outgoing L.A. woman needs a coat. Larian offers a cropped boxy option in sand and azure. On the rare chilly day of our Zoom call (read 60 degrees Fahrenheit in California), the designer was wearing the piece, paired with her teal knit top and trousers. Expanding this kind of head-to-toe cozy wear is something she’s been working on. The goal is to offer a one-stop shop for of-the-moment outfits. And just in case fall does return some normalcy to our lives, Larian has peppered the collection with her popular cut-away dresses featuring metal jewelry details.
