Citizens of Humanity’s Santa Monica home base

Citizen Gallery
Jerome Dahan, the former creative force formerly behind the hip denim line 7 for All Mankind and, more recently, founder of Citizens of Humanity, shares a 1927 Santa Monica house with Lela Tillem, his fiancée and Citizens’ head of sales. The Paris-born Dahan and Tillem have infused the house with vintage French style mixed with kicked-back Californian charm. The goal is a timeless look — “like a high fashion coat from the ‘60s that you wear today and no one can tell if it’s contemporary or vintage,” Tillem says. The couple, shown here on a bed dressed in Calvin Klein linens, likes to shop flea markets and estate sales, the source of lamps shown here.
