Cool Dad Job: Founder and Designer, Co
Cool Dad Vibe: Fashion Person
Cool Dad Bona Fides: Co is an LA-based luxury womenswear brand that Kern co-founded with Stephanie Danan, his life and business partner. Co’s clothes are minimal, chic, and as inexpensive — as far as fashion clothes go. The brand got off to a hot start thanks to a series of short films starring Aubrey Plaza, Marisa Tomei, and Elodie Bouchez, all friends of Danan and Kern, who worked in films and as a model before starting his career as a designer. Now, he’s revolutionizing women’s jeans, which is harder than it sounds, while raising his son Jacob.
