Cherry Blossom Girls: Christy Dawn Petersen and Z Berg, photographed by James Branaman.
Z Berg checks off all the main criteria for me when it comes to lady crushes - talented singer-songwriter, impeccable style, cheeky, abnormally bendy (see: her at home yoga posts on Instagram).
Her collaboration with eco-friendly, Cali-based clothing brand Christy Dawn is nothing short of a bohemian dream, which has Z and pals Langley Fox Hemingway and owner Christy Dawn Petersen herself on a Big Sur road trip. Z and Christy initially met through Christy's husband, a musician working with Z's record producer father, Tony Berg. “We became friends and Z said to me, ‘Hey, you want to make some cool shit? A dress and maybe a jumper?’”
And thus, this beautiful clothing collaboration has come to be in some magical Los Angeles way.
“Z really likes to wear short sexy dresses onstage and I’m the opposite, so the pieces reflect both our tastes."
Check out this fashion video for Z's collaboration with the brand, set to the song "Cooler" by her band Phases. It's seriously making me miss my own Big Sur road trip from last fall.
