This is Jay Perlman and this is his work. I’ll let him do the talking. – PH.
“People often ask me ‘why do you make clothes?’ or ‘what inspires you to make these collections?’ I used to have a long, overblown, much more scripted version of this answer, but in reality, the reason is that I simply make clothes that I want to wear. They are clothes that are missing from my closet that I NEED in my life. It’s a blended process of personal necessity mixed with the desire for creative expression. Thanks to a bit of luck, as well as meeting amazing and helpful individuals, California Crown has turned into a full time business.”
“Having been an athlete for nearly my entire life, I always look for clothing to be comfortable while still maintaining a high level of utility. To be able to wear an outfit that is comfortable enough for the couch, technical enough for active movement, and stylish enough for Pharrell to rock at the Grammy’s is truly the ultimate goal.”
“I love my home, and I love how rooted I am in this incredible state. With unparalleled natural surroundings, amazing history, and its deeply eclectic culture, I always knew that California would be incorporated into my work. Yet, the people that I have met here have possible been the greatest part about living here. There is so much love and passion, that it is hard not to connect with everyone around you. Thankfully, I connected with Pete, and was fortunate enough to be a part of the VSR. Couldn’t ask for a doper way to start the weekly grind.”
Not only can Jay design great clothes, but he has a way with words. I particularly like the way he finished his story! There is plenty more of California Crown to come. Look for another spotlight here soon with some of Jay’s sexy friends doing the modeling duties. That’s all I have to say about that for now. Until then….
