Angelina Rennell is a fashion powerhouse. Not only is the Northern California-based designer the driving force behind her eponymous organic-clothing label, Lina Rennell, but she’s also the owner of the artfully curated online eco-boutique Beklina, which showcases emerging sustainable artists like Mociun, Feral Childe, and Rachel Corney. Rennell kindly threw open the doors of her walk-in closet to give us a peek into her private sartorial world, which is just as quirky and haunting as her designs make it out to be.

This is my bohemian closet. It’s half old and half new, just how I like it, with lots of color, patterns, and accessories. Most of my clothing is from Beklina, Goodwill, hand-me-downs from Grandma. It’s small, like the house, and it forces me to be eco. I can only store so much, and I can see everything at once.

The change of seasons is mild here in Northern California, so I keep winter clothes alongside summer ones, and I even wear a mix of them year-round. These sachets are one of my favorite things to keep with sweaters to keep moths away and give them a great fresh outdoors scent.

LEFT: Hats and scarves fill a basket. (Note: Faux fur from Finland.) RIGHT: Occasionally I’ll pull out what I want to wear the night before and hang it on my armoire. This old shirt and the shell-and-butterfly pendant are both from Grandma. I adore the print and colors! The other necklace is something I found on the beach. Having fun with what I wear is a part of my personal style. The black knit skirt is a basic and elegant new style in the shop by Rachel Comey.

I was first inspired by green fashion because of the gorgeous textiles that reminded me of vintage pieces. I hope what people purchase at Beklina makes it to their granddaughters’ closets some day.

Deep inside my closet…random accessories, seaweed, and sticks.

Vintage handmade crochet hangers—too precious to ever toss!

These are my two favorite style from the Lina Rennell Fall 2009 collection, “Knitting From The Past, Present & Beyond.” LEFT: The wool V-poncho is hand-knit (by me) and the yarn is from a fair-trade women’s co-op in Uruguay. I love it with jeans! RIGHT: The tee is done with a metallic silver “Ants” print on organic cotton jersey, made in United States. It pairs great with black.
