Portraits – Clayton and Flavie Webster of Cerre

Occupation: Fashion designer

Address: 1647 N Las Palmas Ave, Hollywood, CA 90028. www.cerre.com

Whe we like them: Hands down one of my favorite designers. Flavie and Clayton combine a strong aesthetic (restrained, focused, modern) with superb craftsmanship and use of highest quality materials. Having started with a small collection of leather bags a few years ago, the couple slowly expanded into apparel (also leather based). Recently they added other materials to their repertoire, and design classics, such as a slim fitting pant and a translucent blouse, which complement their statement pieces. New for the Summer 2011 collection is a small selection of silk jersey tees. (Take a look at their Summer 2011 collection and find out about their LA favorites after the jump).

How long have you lived here? We moved to LA three years ago.
