What (or rather, who) do Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Jessica Alba, and Kendall Jenner have in common? Besides being paparazzi magnets, the stylish stars all have a piece of LA designers Anine Bing and Janessa Leoné in their closets. If you, too, are captivated by Swedish-bred Bing's edgy, off-duty aesthetic and cool milliner Leoné's chic chapeaus, then your wardrobe dream team has arrived in the form of their just-launched (and already soon-to-be sold out) collab.

Just in time for fall, the two designers have joined forces for three-piece capsule collection that blends their effortless style (it also marks the first collab for Leoné). Like all of the local hatmaker's accessories, each topper is made in the U.S. from 100% sustainable and cruelty-free virgin wool — and there's a silhouette for everyone.

There's the Skylar ($230), a Western-inspired silhouette featuring Bing's signature rocker touch in the form of a studded leather band, while the classic camel-hued Zane fedora ($207) is the perfect autumn-ready finishing touch for any look. Then there's the Arden ($230), a minimalist bolero designed to get matchy-matchy with Bing's cozy cashmere/wool Dylan coat.

In a release, Leoné explains that she's "always been a fan of Anine's personal style and how it translates into the brand she's built. Anine epitomizes an effortless, confident attitude with such a cool and feminine spin. It was such a joy to incorporate her perspective on our minimal designs to create hats that make our customers feel confident and beautiful."

The feeling is obviously mutual: "I love the style and feminine energy of Janessa's designs
and have always admired how her hats can add the perfect rock 'n' roll touch to an outfit," Bing says in the release. "She understands the beauty in minimalism and I love how closely our brands are able to co-exist. Working with her on this partnership was amazing and I am so proud to have created three timeless pieces that will make the women wearing them feel effortless and confident."

The AB x JL collection is shoppable IRL at both of Bing's LA boutiques on West Third Street and at Palisades Village as well as Leoné's The Edit with Freda Salvador shop at PLATFORM in Culver City; you can also cop it online at both designers' websites at over on Anine Bing or Janessa Leoné.
