Best Fashion Made in the East Bay

Leslie Evers

Berkeley-born designer Lesley Evers is known for her collection of fresh, vibrantly patterned cotton wrap and button-down dresses, slim tunics, and swingy skirts that are equally adaptable to the playground, a wine-country wedding, and the boardroom (okay, a mellow East Bay boardroom, perhaps). With figure-flattering necklines, flirty sashes, and hip-swishing skirts, Evers' clothes are evocative of an easier time when starry-eyed couples rode bright Schwinn bicycles to the beach on Saturday afternoons to collect seashells and memories. She calls her aesthetic "modern nostalgic," and we can't argue — the ease of slipping into any item in her collection, of eliciting that naughty-sweet sigh from a lover who can't recall ever witnessing such a demure flush in your cheeks, of the delighted gasp that escapes from your own lips when you glimpse your reflection in the mirror — they all recall a certain affection for happy times past, and for the stylishly simple moments ahead.
