Michael Ball founded Rock & Republic in 2002 with a single pair of jeans. Since then, the former pro cyclist and his partner, Andrea Bernholtz, have transformed their Los Angeles-based company into a luxe denim brand as well as a purveyor of premium footwear, cosmetics, leather goods, and, of course, pet accessories. Loved by young Hollywood, the label traffics in the rocker-meets-rebel look: think body-conscious cuts, stud details, and artful prints that are both street-ready and effortlessly cool.
Get concert-ready style from this Los Angeles brand with an edgy-luxe appeal. From high-top sneakers to crocodile-embossed boots to logo buckle belts, Rock & Republic is a favorite for young Hollywood.
