About Electric & Rose

Electric & Rose is an LA based brand created by husband and wife duo Erin Chimulon and Eric Balfour in 2014. They blended their love of yoga + surf to create a men and women’s clothing line for both land and water.

Electric & Rose was named after two iconic streets in the heart of Venice Beach as a reminder of the brands roots and message. Erin and Eric’s mutual love of yoga, surf, and travel culminated into a collection inspired by the culture and city they grew up in. Electric & Rose is a reflection of the music, art, surf culture, and bohemian lifestyle of Venice, where the company is based.

Generally my preference leans towards the more synthetic and high-tech material. I gave Electric & Rose’s cotton jersey leggings a try and I’m glad I did! I am hooked on their Sunset leggings!

While Electric & Rose does offer plenty of styles in technical fabrics, it’s the cotton Sunset leggings that have been selling out and catching everyone’s attention.
