About the designer
Los Angeles-based brand Simon Miller was founded in 2008 by Daniel Corrigan. Initially only a men’s denim brand, the label expanded to a full lifestyle brand in 2014, when Corrigan acquired the skilful eye of Chelsea Hansford, who previously worked at Opening Ceremony. The label is celebrated for fusing a modern aesthetic with Japanese sartorial techniques.
A laid-back allure is highlighted by Simon Miller’s denim, which elevates mere wardrobe staples to sculptural ready-to-wear. Textural materials are transformed by elaborate Japanese dyeing techniques, as the brand’s natural and lived-in indigo wash is hand-dyed in Los Angeles. Besides denim, the label is celebrated for its contemporary and minimalistic handbags. Their coveted Bonsai bag, a classic bucket style, headed a stylistic craze, pleasing those on the lookout for high-quality tanned leather at a more-than-acceptable price point.
