Founder, Gumball Poodle

Erica Easley is the founder of Gumball Poodle, an internationally sold sock brand with a celebrity following (Beyoncé, Madonna, and Kamala Harris are just a few fans). Prior to starting Gumball Poodle, she co-authored the world’s first book on the history of vintage rock T-shirts, Rock Tease (Abrams Image, 2006) – based on her collection of more than 2,000 shirts – and spent years hunting for sartorial treasures at thrift stores nationwide as a buyer for one of the largest vintage stores in the US.

Erica currently lives in Los Angeles, where she enjoys walking everywhere (almost), scouring flea markets and reading James Ellroy.
