Founded by Alana Hadid and Emily Perlstein in 2017, La Detresse is the product of a mutual obsession between the former stylists and friends for the perfect denim jacket. The duo founded La Detresse and produced a line of denim and knitwear in Los Angeles. Their intent is to fuse their love of vintage and androgyny with wearability and innovation to deliver its wearer's a closet staple on which they can build their wardrobe.
