I first headed out to Barcelona to meet the designers of Txell Miras after I saw their collection online. Their offices were on the outskirts of the city, in Terrassa. It was a beautiful loft which the designer Meritxell Miras and her husband Ivan Caparròs used as a design studio and office. She look real cool in her “own” outfit, as you can see in the image below.

I loved the collection and decided to represent it in the U.S. Here’s how the first line looked and was shown in the TXELL MIRAS SS11 catalog:

We placed in stores pretty fast and I was so glad to finally find a collection that my favorite store in Los Angeles, Church Boutique, would appreciate.

Today I went for a stroll at Church and I have to report back to you on the beauty of this museum-like boutique.

Here is the Entrance. Glorious!

Church Boutique is as spiritual and peaceful as an empty monastery. The vibe changes every week. I have never walked into the same amazing assortment of goods. There is always something new and they always have an interesting way of presenting it.

Like these Arellanas Lizard bags, or this gorgeous dress dragging on the floor.

I love the Riff line and the Odyn Vovk selection too.

It’s a sort of revisitation of Maxfield with even more sophistication, mainly because Rodney, the owner and creative director, used to manage the store. Pricey, avant-garde, exclusive and contemporary, it’s the most  understated yet over-stimulating environment for fashion lovers. At Church there are also all kinds of accessories and objects. You can find jewelry and incredible art.

Situated in Hollywood, Church attracts celebrities, stylists and photographers from all over the world. It has become a hot spot for collections since it offers them an exposure other stores can’t guarantee.

Now Church carries Txell Miras FW11 line, as you can see here:

Only a few Txell Miras Fall Winter line pieces are left and they stand right by these amazing cocoon-looking heavy wool sweaters by Johan Ku .

At peace at Church
