“We are very visual people and believe that your space can be a study of your personal style and an outlet for your creativity—it’s just like fashion,” explained Meritt Elliott, one half of a Hollywood styling powerhouse alongside partner Emily Current (yes, they’re the same Meritt Elliott and Emily Current known for denim range Current/Elliott, but they left the company in 2012). The duo, who were recently inducted into the CFDA, have brought their carefully crafted aesthetic to a special collection with PBteen, launching today. As is their trademark, classic pieces are reimagined with a touch of playfulness and hints of femininity: a clothing rack is given an antique feel, an occasional table is redefined as a wood stump, a side table feels vintage in linen, bedding is updated with metallic embellishments, and a chaise lounge is made modern with denim upholstery. “We relied on our favorite fabrications, colors, and small irreverent references that celebrate personal style and something warmly familiar,” Current said of replicating their world, filled with style, thoughtfulness, and charm. The designers sent us an exclusive sketch of the range (below), as well as a snap of the finished product (above).
Though they’ve made their mark in fashion, Current and Elliott’s PBteen collaboration was a seamless extension of their overall creative vision. “Interior design and styling and fashion design are actually very similar,” Current said of their ability to cross over. “We rely on a balance of proportion, a need for a high-low, irony, and the juxtaposition of masculine and feminine.” The formula has proved fruitful for the pair, who now count Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts, Mandy Moore, and Sophia Bush as clients. And the team reiterated that they’re not done with denim yet. “We are never done with denim! It’s who we are,” Current offered. And denim or not, they promise a future in design that’s confident. “And big!” Elliott added.
Emily & Meritt for PBteen is available from today at PBteen stores. Prices range from $29 to $799.

We’ve had our eye on Chinese model Wang Xiao for some time now (and so has our resident street-style photographer, Tommy Ton). She has a feminine and playfully offbeat way of dressing that seems just right for the new year. The Wilhelmina catwalker was snapped by Vanessa Jackman in London wearing ripped denim with pink accessories and a blouse with colorful, sheer sleeves. Take a cue from Wang Xiao’s lighthearted off-duty style and refresh your look with essentials from Marc Jacobs, Barbara Bui, and more, below.

Overalls go in and out of fashion at the drop of a hat (or should that be a strap?), and at times it can be challenging to draw the line between pairs that are chic, and those that are better left to carpenters. But model Tilda Lindstam, snapped during fashion month, proved that she has no trouble distinguishing the two.The Swedish catwalk star paired her slouchy corduroy set with a polka dot shirt, brogues, and a bright red 3.1 Phillip Lim bag. Her look leaves nothing to complain about, so we’ve rounded up four of favorite overalls below.
