Featured Designer of the month: Robin Kaplan
In store exclusive:
We're carrying a new line by this amazing designer from California. Her name is Robin Kaplan and she's the epitome of an art-to-wear designer. She hand dyes her clothes using a process she's invented herself and sews various pieces of the finest French tulle, Italian linen, silk chiffon, and crocheted lace together to make some of the most beautiful and unique pieces we have ever seen. According to her website, the fabrics are selected for their tactile nature, and it is believed that the texture of clothes can invoke a feeling: "Audacious yet fanciful, our garments are designed for the woman with an adventurous intelligence and a fervent femininity."
Check out her beautiful buttons:
We have two of her cardigans in at the moment that feature these hand-blown buttons.
