LNA is Lauren Alexander and April Leight. Beginning with the idea of creating the perfect men’s inspired t-shirt for women, their brand has since evolved into producing full, seasonal collections and garnering a loyal celebrity following from Kate Moss to Ryan Gosling. Beyond the coverage in Vogue, Elle, and Harpers Bazaar, the really cool part is that Lauren is also a horse girl, spending her childhood riding competing at the likes of the old Indio circuit in Palm Springs and Devon.
In addition to being native Californians immersed in west coast style, Lauren says her time in the horse world has always influenced her creatively - the first LNA collection, for example, included an equestrian inspired legging. For ss13, the girls featured a photo of a friend’s horse on a this totally hot tee and Coachella-ready sweatshirt, which have turned out to be the collection favorites. “There’s something very regal and free about a horse which is why I think we are so drawn to them. On a side note, I just realized I’m wearing the horse tee as a write this!”
