Emily Current and Meritt Elliott are exiting their eponymous denim label Current/Elliott, WWD reports. They launched the brand, which has inspired cult status among celebrity and lay-pants-wearers alike since it began just four years ago, with Serge Azria, who also owns Equipment and Joie.
When we spoke with the designer/stylist pair in 2011, we learned that they like yoga and quoting Tom Ford, get busy dressing the likes of Emma Roberts and Mandy Moore, and are seasoned line dancers (kind of). Also, they love a good collab. Our favorites from Current/Elliott's past after the jump.
Current/Elliott x Marni: A 2010 collab displaying extreme boyfriend denimism.
Current/Elliott x DVF: The looks above, styled for Shopbop show the anti-wallflower take on denim.
Current/Elliott x Kate Spade New York: An odd collaboration all around, what with the East-and-West coast bedfellows, denim designers doing handbags, and Americana aesthetic meets the prim and proper girl. Still, the 2011 collection was ace.
