If Yuka Izutsu were not the creative mind behind Atelier Delphine—her newbie label that she describes as “Southern California meets sixties European vacation style”—she would be a fine artist. And to craft loungewear that feels as elevated as hers does? Well, that’s an art form, too.

Atelier Delphine was born in 2011, when a desire to do something really personal drove Yuka to leave behind her design gig at a small, family-owned brand and strike out on her own. Comprised of gently feminine (but never aggressively girly) basics, Delphine got attention from the luxury Japanese department store BEAMS early—in fact, the bigwigs there were so smitten with Yuka’s on-point aesthetic that they eventually tapped her to be the retailer’s L.A. buyer.

That global reach speaks to her strengths: Yuka spends most of her time in Los Angeles but logs frequent trips to Tokyo and Osaka to visit family and continent hops regularly for sourcing. “I use fabrics from Japan, Canada, Spain, Mexico, and the United States,” explains Yuka, adding that her quest for unique materials has sparked an insatiable appetite for travel that is not without its pitfalls and missteps. “Sometimes you have to do some stupid things just to try them. Trust yourself and explore,” she notes. And, when you do, make sure to pack a little something to wear in those fluffy hotel beds. —mattie kahn
