The duo founded La Detresse and produced a line of cool denim and knitwear in sunny Los Angeles.
Think- paparazzi shots of celebrities stepping out for a morning coffee sporting a bedhead, their leashed dogs, probably another trendsetting Balenciaga bag worn with sweatpants –which seem like an afterthought that quickly becomes the trend. La Detresse is synonymous to “DTLA” (Downtown Los Angeles), the vibe they represent in their comfy yet dressed-to-take-on-the-street looks. Their intent for La Detresse was to fuse their love of vintage and androgyny with wearability and innovation to deliver a closet staple on which you can build your wardrobe.
Emily and Alana were both born and raised on the East Coast but Alana split her time between LA and New York. She always considered herself to be a California girl. La Detresse’s co-founder duo met each other via personal shopping and hadn’t been inseparable since then. Together, as they joined forces to create La Detresse, the original idea for the brand was all about the denim jacket, based on vintage jackets that Alana had collected over years. They weren’t trying to be on-trend or even set a standard- they just wanted to make cool clothes that everyone could wear and love, a piece that could be passed down from generation to generation, and get better with age.
