Fashion-forward movie buffs will recognize Jack by BB Dakota as the label behind the “Twilight jacket” — the iconic blue hoodie worn by Kristen Stewart in her career-making performances as Bella. BB Dakota’s feminine, vintage-inspired clothing had been a favorite among tastemakers and fashion editors long before the company began making clothing for A-list actresses to wear on-screen. In 2007 BB Dakota's mother-daughter leadership team Gloria and Katherine Brandes partnered up with designer Nikki Chapman to launch Jack by BB Dakota: an edgier, "effortlessly hip" clothing line that explores the middle-ground between masculine and feminine. The younger sister to BB Dakota, Jack features sporty outerwear (the "Twilight" jacket — officially named the Nicola — is an example), little black strapless dresses, and on-trend, bold-print separates.
Luckily for lovers of all things intricate and romantic, the craft movement that's taken hold in recent years shows no sign of letting up.
