Jessica Kamm x Cerno
Jessica Kamm x Cerno

For the past two seasons, fashion has missed the laid-back stylings of LA-based clothing designer Jesse Kamm, who retreated to–in her own words–"an amazing cabin in the woods" in Texas with her new baby. But, as the adage goes, the best things come to those who wait: Kamm's sabbatical inspired her impressive spring collection, full of shape-oriented pieces endowed with simple repeated patterns. "Time in Texas did me good," she says. "I eventually landed in Marfa, where I was inspired by Donald Judd, which brought me to the Bauhaus, Gerrit Rietveld, and Gunta Stolzl weavings." And in additional Kamm news, the designer recently collaborated with Cerno, the industrial design company known for super-green LED lighting fixtures, to create a shade for its Silva lamp. "It's a beautiful pairing of the print with the lamp," she says, adding that the total effect is a delightful-sounding "dainty but sturdy."
