A home for Mighty Jackets


Since their launch in May of last year, the fitted jackets from The Mighty Co. - think racer, bomber and biker styles - have been so popular that the brand's founder, visual artist Jessie Willner, opened a bricks-and-mortar space in October.

"I wanted something that feels like one giant dressing room for girls to try on the jackets," she said about the pale pink and cool gray marble space. "Our studio si in the back so we can offer customization on site."

The focus remains exclusively on jackets. "People like to hold on to their jackets," she said. "I loved the idea of something in fashion that felt more permanent."

Willner sources her fabrics from Europe, including the French mill that produces for Chanel, and she makes some of her pieces in Los Angeles. Bowing this month are her resort offerings, which were inspired by "metallic things and bright colors mixed in with more subdued colors."

Key looks include a reversible silk bomber that is a combination of hot pink, red and blue and a '70s-influenced racer in pale and dark blue emblazoned with stars.
