Inside the Home of Emily Current

Stylesight takes a peek inside the home and closet of Emily Current to uncover some of her killer denim collections.

Jun 21, 2011


The Coveteur recently visited Emily Current of CURRENT/ELLIOTT in her L.A. home and dug through her killer collection of cream lace dresses, Miu Miu 1990s geometric pumps, and of course, her overflowing collection of vintage American denim.

It’s no secret that Emily loves denim. Her genuine admiration of American iconography and history led her to design denim and build her dream denim world with CURRENT/ELLIOTT. The unique styles of the label (along with former half Meritt Elliott) have made a serious impression in the already oversaturated market, winning over celebrities like Reese Witherspoon, Katie Holmes, Mary Kate Olsen and Megan Fox with their D.I.Y. creations. With the label continuing to flourish and a line of casual outerwear on its way, Emily took some time out to show off some of the most inspirational and sentimental collections in her home.

As a denim aficionado, she’s obsessed with proportion and washes – made evident by her towering collection of vintage blues. The vintage American denims range from classic workwear labels like Lee and Wrangler to Levi’s, all with a common thread of a tinted, destroyed and repaired aesthetic. But it’s her father’s jean jacket from the late 50s with a hand-painted portrait of Fred Flintstone that is her most sentimental possession. She says, “The worn wash, the double buckle back and the fact it is selvedge make it even more beautiful to me now. I cherish it for many reasons!”

Her collection of indigos and vintage Harley Davidson tees are complemented by anecdotes found around her house; from her Parisian lace shifts to vintage photos and Ernst Haeckel drawings, they are all just as impressive. From our world to yours, take a peek inside Emily Current’s fashionable den.
