Erica Pelosini is like a shot of fine Limoncello. Small but fiercely affective. With sun-kissed skin and caramel highlights, Erica wears Los Angeles well. However this Italian born siren from Florence is anything but idle.

As a stylist, editor, creative director, and ambassador to brands like Christian Louboutin, Roberto Cavalli, Emilio Pucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Mary Katrantzou, Erica’s poetic eye and ability to tell a fantastical story through fashion is the driving force in her brand. Her name is well known in the fashion publishing world for being a contributor to Harper’s Bazaar UK and US, Vogue in Spain, Italy, Mexico, Brazil, Dutch, and Japan, as well as at L’Officiel Paris, Russia, Italy, C Magazine and style.com Arabia.

Married to Dutch shoe designer Louis Leeman, whom she launched his eponymous label with, she is also a creative director at their family business. Louis and Erica recently introduced the women’s collection, and have been forever travelling in search of inspiration, the latest trends, and celebrating the brand.
