Erin’s looks, described as Coco Chanel-classy with a Gwen Stefani-edginess, feature vibrant colors, flowing, water-like fabrics and clean lines, often with an unexpected touch such as a line of orchid-like embellishments on the back of a dress strap or a fan of peacock feathers artfully splayed across a bodice.

Yuzu Zen

by Yleya Turchin & Zula Khramov

When Yleya Turchin and Zula Khramov, designers for their own labels, Yleya Vega Atelier and ZulaStudio, decided to join their fashion esthetics into one, the birth of YUZU seemed the most organic way to put the two names together… and it sounded so fresh and very new… until they realized that the fruit of their labor was actually… a fruit that grows from the yuzu tree.

As spiritual human beings, Yleya and Zula saw a sign in this, and were inspired by how one path inevitably crosses another and the way things that are meant to be grow out from seemingly disconnected acts.That’s how YUZU ZEN came to be a seamless way to integrate philosophy and function, a bridge between spirit and style, urbanity and art, concept and sensitivity. YUZU ZEN is the harmonious blend of raw and simple elements: timeless wisdom, organic textiles, spiritual graphics and a calming palette – creating a desired atmosphere that is both classic and modern – a true fifth element of effortless style.
