MEET THE DESIGNER: TENOVERSIX

Tenoversix
Brady Cunningham and Kristen Lee SHOP ALL
Co-owner of the ahead-of-the-curve West Hollywood boutique Tenoversix, Kristen Lee (left) knows a thing or seven about accessories. A quick glance at her resume reveals a Parsons degree, freelance styling gigs (think Nylon and British Vogue) an eponymous shoe line, and a position in Theory’s design department. But it wasn’t until she moved to L.A. that things got really interesting. There, in 2008, Kristen reconnected with her old fashion-school pal Brady Cunningham, and the two decided to set up shop, opening a store all about the non-clothing things you wear. “We have about 30 to 70 different designers at any given time,” Kristen reveals. “Our focus is on shoes, handbags, jewelry, but we now carry ready-to-wear, music on vinyl, art books, beauty, and children’s.” The latter might seem like a curveball, but both Kristen and Brady are new moms, and those tots of theirs need Bobo Choses onesies that mesh with the Vena Cava shoes the READ MORE

stylin’ matriarchs wear—and co-designed.
Speaking of design: Tenoversix has since launched a house line that’s as ridiculously cool as anything else the duo carries. “Basically what we do is make all of our favorite basics that we wear all of the time—like really great pumps, simple roll clutches—nothing overly embellished, nothing overly trendy. Just something cool, simple, and chic that you can keep in your wardrobe for a long time,” Kristen explains. And if thatisn’t enough to keep them busy, there are the collabs: partnering with Bodkin for shoes, doing a sculptural handbag with jeweler Gabriela Artigas, creating something special for Of a Kind (!!!), and designing sunglasses for the new eyewear site Lookmatic.com. The duo better keep plenty of those shades on hand in case things get even brighter over there. —jessie pascoe
