Elyse Walker is something of a style legend in Los Angeles. Her superbly curated eponymous boutique in the tony Pacific Palisades neighborhood causes the fashion set to go out of their way (literally as the Palisades is a suburb located above Pacific Coast Highway, between Santa Monica and Malibu) to shop her incredible array of clothing and accessories—from Saint Laurent to Frame Denim, Balenciaga to Enza Costa tees. Unsurprisingly, the same stylish women that ogle over everything in her store were thrilled when 11 months ago Walker—along with BSable founder Sable Banoun—created THEPERFEXT, a collection based on what the two trendsetters believe every woman should have in their closet. Each season (Spring ’15 is their second) consists of approximately 10 pieces, making the beautifully designed items both uber exclusive and uber covetable. Given the undeniable appeal of fringe for spring, we nearly fainted when we saw this season’s array of pieces. “We had a feeling that fringe was about to explode,” says Walker. “It’s been off the market for a couple of years so we decided to take a gamble, and our first bet paid off.” Click through for a few of our faves. We think you’ll agree they are a cut above the rest.
