Mike Gonzalez Does Street Chic in His Namesake Line

LA-based designer Mike Gonzalez has been around the block once or twice before. The "Mike" behind Mike & Chris, the line who many attribute to making the leather jacket appropriate for more than just riding motorcycles, is about to launch his solo collection MIKEGONZALEZ. Inspired by his childhood stompin' ground of East Los Angeles, Gonzalez draws on post-punk era and 90s skate-culture, making these two fashion eras accessible to any woman. MIKEGONZALEZ maintains the same street-savvy flair as his previous line, but is paired with a new wave of elegance that is both timeless and modern. Think effortlessly draped cardigans, sumptuous knits, and yummy chiffon tops that are perfect for any sartorially-minded girl. But those who are dedicated to Mike & Chris need not worry—leather jackets with braided and zipper detailing are included in this line as well! So hurry and sneak a peek at these must-haves because we have a feeling they come August they'll be flying off the shelves.
Shop MIKEGONZALEZ at Diavolina, 8741 West 3rd Street (at Robertson Boulevard); 310-550-1341.
