The Brock designer shares what she’s giving this holiday.
Written By TARA LAMONT-DJITE
For Laura Vassar Brock, one half of the duo behind über-chic womenswear label Brock Collection (also the latest winners of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award), style is second nature. The California-born designer also happens to be one of the best-dressed moms on the East Coast, often bedecked in the Marie-Antoinette-meets-prairie-girl clothes with which her label (designed with husband Kristopher Brock) has become synonymous. Think: chinoiserie-inspired printed bustiers, fitted off-the-shoulder dresses with built-in corsets (their fit is second to none), plenty of white poplin, and cult-loved jeans that imbue a luxurious ease.
Now in its third year, Brock Collection has become a favorite among cool girls and celebrities alike, from Alicia Vikander, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts to Lauren Santo Domingo and Vanessa Traina (who styles the runway shows each season). Here, read more on Vassar Brock’s laid-back Cali-girl style, and discover what she’ll be gifting this holiday season.
I love keeping this Chanel mist in my handbag—it fits perfectly in my everyday tote. My best friend, Sarah Smith, is going to love it!
This is one of my favorite new coffee table books: all the girls we work with will be receiving a copy!
This top is perfect paired with jeans for a weekend look or with a skirt for evening. I’ll be sending one to a darling friend in London.
My extraordinary facialist at Dr. Lancer’s office in Beverly Hills taught me a great beauty trick: use one of these ampoules before applying makeup before a night out, you’ll be glowing. These are perfect for one of my closest friends, Hayley Bloomingdale.
Dallas Wand, designer of Stone Cold Fox and my beloved friend, will look gorgeous in our jeans. Santa will be sending her this pair!
These earrings by Marie Hélène de Taillac are divine! (If my husband happens to be reading this, wink wink!)
