For those of you familiar with Ulla Johnson’s eponymous label you’d be right in thinking of boho vibes and lazy Topanga Canyon mornings to describe the brand’s DNA.

For Spring 2017 however, the designer, who creates each collection responsibly using handcrafted practices and artisan skills, found her inspiration in South America’s gaucho culture and solid block color palettes, rather than the delicate floral motifs she is better known for.

 “What I was partially enamored by, with the gaucho style, was they often have very structured leather pieces, which we’ve introduced this season as well, but then underneath that there would be an unexpected handmade crochet or fringe — so that play between something very soft and something structured.” Johnson noted.

Our favorite elements included her high ruffled necklines, buttery leathers, nipped in waists and the retained commitment to handcrafted pieces, most notably the crocheted sweater that took a week to make.
