ERIN KLEINBERG

As we cruise out of winter and yearn for the allure of SPRING, Featured Designer and co-founder of The COVETEUR "Erin Kleinberg" shares the details behind her highly anticipated SS15 collection and #ThatEKlife. 

Collaborations to look forward to with the new year... We collaborated with Lena Dunham for this Spring '15 collection. We are super excited about this partnership. We created a bunch of custom prints that are seriously epic. As for the future... you'll just have to wait and see ;) 

Must-have piece from your Spring collection... The "Awake @ Sunrise Dress". It's a play on EK's infamous Theo dress (Jared Leto's fave). This dress is the epitome of cool girl chic. It's fun and easy, plus the indigo and orange tie dye is dope. 

It is so amazing how people put themselves together and I love the creativity of everyday dressing

If you could summarize #ThatEKlife in 3 words... Confident, laid back, cool 

Go-to source of inspiration... I am very inspired by street style, hence why I started The Coveteur. I think it is so amazing how people put themselves together and love the creativity of everyday dressing. When I see a girl who is so effortlessly chic on the street, it really gets me going. 

Closet staple you can't live without... I love love love my leather J Brands. I wear them with everything, literally can't take them off. When I am not in a pants mood, my Erin Kleinberg Constance dress is my go to. It's so comfy and easy. I put it on and am ready for whatever the day has in store for me. 

Your last great escape... I was just in Palm Springs over the Christmas Holidays. It truly is my home away from home. I've been going there since I was a kid and got married there last February. It holds a very special place in my heart and is the perfect place for me to RELAX (only for a second, of course). 

Proudest moment in your career, thus far... My proudest moment so far was probably selling to Barneys in my first season. I was only 22!

KELLY GoLIGHTLY

A TRUE modern-day Audrey Hepburn, Kelly Lee of "Kelly Golightly" sweeps through the idyllic OASIS of Palm Springs with a bold sense of style.

How I rang in the new year... in Palm Springs with my husband Fred Baby, over an intimate dinner at the beautiful new home of our friends Ross Mathews and Salvador Camarena. The next day, we hopped in the car for a roadtrip through the Mojave desert. 

Mono Lake is magical, as are the Antelope Valley poppy fields in the spring.

What I'm most excited for in 2015... I’ve been invited to spend the weekend at the Jonathan Adler-designed Eau de Palm in Palm Beach. I’m a huge JA fan and can’t wait to see his genius in action. Come February, my husband and I will be exhibiting our photography work for the first time, a Slim Aarons-inspired collection, at The Eichler House for Modernism Week in Palm Springs. I was also invited to cruise through the Caribbean and look forward to a little island hopping. It seems I’m going to be quite the palm vivant!

Most beloved place in the country... Palm Springs, where we are lucky enough to have a weekend home. We go every chance we get. And Mono Lake is magical, as are the Antelope Valley poppy fields in the spring.

Favorite article of clothing... My giant Audrey Hepburn-inspired sunhat that I picked up in the tiny town of Miguel Perera, Brazil. It hides both a bad hair day and keeps my face protected from the sun. 

Personal style secret... The bigger the hat the better, and sunglasses always. And it’s never worth it to wear something uncomfortable. I love a good caftan or babydoll dress. 

Favorite meal on the road... Tacos forever!

I can’t get enough of bright, happy hues.

Best current hashtag... #Theflagisraised which I use on Instagram to kick off virtual happy hour. It is inspired by Frank Sinatra’s tradition of raising a flag between two palm trees at his Twin Palms Estate to alert the neighbors it was time to join him for happy hour. Now others use the hashtag too, which creates a fun sense of community. 

Favorite current trend... Color! I can’t get enough of bright, happy hues. 

Must-see places for that upcoming trip to Palm Springs... Enjoy the slow pace of drinks or lunch by the pool at The Viceroy, The Colony Palms and The Parker. Grab tacos or enchiladas suizas at Las Casuelas and a mocha freeze from Koffi. For a complete throwback, have a drink or dinner at Melvyn's, where the Rat Pack used to hang out, and where you can still have items like Steak Diane made table side. Pop into Trina Turk and my favorite vintage stores Bon Vivant, The Fine Art of Design, and Dazzles for fabulous shopping (see my Palm Springs Shopping Guide here). Pop into some open houses for interior eye candy, drive into the windmills and around the neighborhoods of Vista Las Palmas and Racquet Club.
