Saturday Essentials: Julia Leach

It started with a striped shirt. Nine years ago, Julia Leach found an old fishermans top in a Paris vintage store. She designed a flattering soft-cotton version and a few accessories (a straw hat, espadrilles), and her collection of beautifully reimagined staples, Chance, was born.

Sturdily constructed and big on thoughtful details (covered buttons, necklines with just enough scoop), her pieces are on the wish lists of women more concerned with style than fashion. So what does Leach herself wish for? With a rapidly expanding business and a bicoastal schedule (she splits her time between New York and Los Angeles), she dreams of a Saturday off to have the whole day to go for a drive, cook, write, hike, discover something new, she says.

And becauseshe never knows when she might stumble upon thenext great inspiration, she has one rule, whereverthe day may take her: Pack light, and carry a big tote. These are a few of her favorite things

Julias Saturday Essentials:

1. When in New York City, Leach loves treasure hunting at flea markets. One recent find: a cache of 300 love letters written between 1938 and 1941.

2. The self-described tomboy pairs jeans (vintage Levis or these APC New Cures, $175) with everything.

3. Serge Lutens la Nuit, $130 for 50mL, reminds her of evenings in the Hollywood Hills.

4. Leach prefers her jewelrybold, old, and simple, like this turquoise cuff.

5. She wears these handmade sandals, $425, all year.

6. Though not big on makeup, shes never without a tube of Burts Bees lip balm, $3.

7. My fishermans sweater($345)has been around the world with me, Leach says.

8. She admires Joan Didions spare prose, especially The White Album,$14.

9. Leach serves Domaine Fourniers Sancerre Cuve Silex, $35, at her chilled-out dinner parties.
