Los Angeles interior decorator, accessories designer, and InStyle columnist Kelly Wearstler deftly mixes art deco, Hollywood Regency, mid-century modern, and disco-era decadence for her buzzy list of celebrity clients. But in her family’s Malibu retreat, she keeps the mood natural, turning to the sand, the sun, and the deep blue sea for inspiration. InStyle sat down with Wearstler and scoped out the breathtaking views for our February issue. “When I designed this place, I didn’t want anything to distract from the blue skies and waves outside the window,” she told us. Peek inside the designer’s stunning beachfront home, and get all the details on her choices of artwork, furniture, and more in our gallery.
Designer extraordinaire Kelly Wearstler has teamed up with French sunglass guru Thierry Lasry on a Parisian line of shades that are coming to the states! This special version of Lasry’s classic style “Anorexxxy” features touches of Wearstler’s refined-yet-glam style. ”The collaboration was very artistic,” Wearstler told InStyle of the partnership. “The energy and creative excitement that we both shared about this project made it fun,” Lasry said.
The Thierry Lasry x Kelly Wearstler collaboration is a mash-up of the key elements from Kelly’s world, which can be seen in the side detailing, and Thierry’s aesthetic, which is influenced by 80’s style. “The collaboration is inspired by our shared love of rich color and appreciation for marble,” Wearstler said. “The glasses have a raw coolness with an elegant and refined vibe.”
Available in four colors — cristal, black, blue, and bordeau — they feature gold metal and marble arms with black acetate tips. Even the packaging was well thought out by the pair. “We developed a case and soft bag inspired by Kelly’s book, Rhapsody. The perforated gold box combined with a marble stone gives the entire package a lot of dimension,” Lasry said to InStyle.
Meanwhile, what’s the perfect outfit to wear with our new shades? “There is nothing more classically Californian-cool than an iconic pair of sunglasses, a tee and the perfect pair of jeans,” Wearstler told InStyle. “Sunglasses are the easiest way to update a look.” Pick up a pair for $555 starting November 8th at the Kelly Wearstler flagship store or on bergdorfgoodman.com November 11th.

Interior, fashion, and jewelry designer Kelly Wearstler has just released her fourth book of interiors—following tomes Modern Glamour, Domicilium Decoratus, and Hue, Rhapsody showcases Wearstler’s rich breadth of residential creations, divided up by the design elements she loves: metals, raw elements, and architectural form among them. “For this book, I wanted to include a little bit more about my process,” Wearstler told InStyle.com. “A lot of the photographs I took three to four years before [the project was completed], and then you also see them in their finished environment.” And here’s a hint—when flipping through the pages of the book, keep an eye out for sartorial inspirations in the designs. “The interiors are where I created the voice of my work, and it translated into my fashion design,” Wearstler said. She recently did just that, transforming her love for hot pink from interior pieces like the couch pictured above into a leather biker jacket, which made our list of favorite Breast Cancer Awareness products. “I looked at fashion to inspire my interiors, and now I’m looking at interiors to inspire my fashion. I could be looking at jewelry and think this would be a great piece of hardware for a cabinet, or I might see a print in a wallpaper and think this could be a great print for a dress.” Rhapsody, published by Rizzoli, is available now for $55 on rizzoliusa.com.
