With Simkhai's new Resort collection, you can tell he is settled. He notes that he was inspired by his move to L.A., desert landscapes, minimalist architecture, and a little bit of the American pastoral. This collection seemed thoughtful and personal, with pieces that showed off both his technical skills and his eye for strong silhouettes.  As a whole, the lineup felt organic and well conceived. Simkhai hopes to work on his future collections from inside his own L.A.-based home studio, which he’s currently constructing in the attached garage. He built an impressive business in a relatively short amount of time, and as his work gets more personal, as it did this season, there’s nowhere to go but up. Congratulations JS on your new marriage! xo
