Designer to Watch: Mike Gonzalez

I am just full of things I didn't know lately! Today it's that Mike Gonzalez, founder and former designer of Mike and Chris, has gone out on his own with a recently-launched eponymous label. If only his website worked correctly...But I luckily found pictures of his spring 2011 collection at Refinery 29! It's edgy tribal, with great color and prints, geometric cutouts and feminine, tailored silhouettes. He has a very modern take on the LA street culture that is a part of his inspiration, and everything is super wearable and easy to incorporate into a fashionista's wardrobe!You can shop his fall collection (which I believe was his first) at Revolve Clothing and Pink Mascara. Items range from $149 for a jersey tee to more than $850 for leather jackets.
