It may be called Objects Without Meaning, but this California-based label maintains a seriously meaningful sense of style within each and every piece. Designer Alexandra Michelle founded the line in 2011, choosing to work out of Los Angeles specifically after she spent time living in other major cities and had moved from her home in Australia. Today she’s at the helm of one of the most influential brands in LA’s new-found fashion capital status. Using clean lines, loose silhouettes and luxurious fabrics like linen and silk, Alexandra creates a laid-back aesthetic that makes a statement whether you’re wearing it while on duty at the office or sneaking ice cream on the weekend. Here, the designer shares her artistic philosophy and the things that continue to inspire her.
