Fresh Picks: Milena Silvano Clothing

4.10.2014


Clothing has arrived in our shop!After seeing the images of her spring/summer14 collection, I just couldn't resist adding a limited selection of clothing by UK-based Milena Silvano. Featuring beautiful soft textiles (love the ikat pattern!) and easy breezy shapes, we're thrilled to offer her dresses and comfy tops. They're key pieces for a nice brunch at home, music festival (Coachella anyone?) and lightweight enough for an easy-packing ensemble for travel. And check out our interview with the lovely Milena Silvano including her travel tips.

New Arrivals: Leah Ball Jewerly + Ceramics

4.03.2014






We're thrilled to add to our shop the jewelry and home goods collection by Chicago-based designer Leah Ball. Whether it's hand-building/marbling porcelain or hand-carving metal, she is truly one talented lady for her versatility in manipulating a variety of materials. The result...beautiful sculptural pieces to adorn you or your home. Consistent with the color scheme I'm drawn to this season, I love the blue marbled effect and enamel used in her pieces this season.

It's always nice to go home especially to see the ever changing neighborhoods around my hometown of LA. It was great to check out this spring's Parachute Market -a seasonal design fair held at the LA Arts District. It was great to explore the new designs and catch up with one of our designers Bari. She was showcasing some of her gorgeous new creations including vases and lamps from her B-Zippy line. Whether jewelry,textiles or homewares, it was a great opportunity to meet the makers and discover some new finds for our Vuela shop. I've been wanting to add some wooden pieces to our shop and love these wooden bowls by Silvia Song. And there are the lovely wooden utensils, rattles and other sculptural pieces by my favorite teachers, Lisa and Kagan of Knotworks LA. It was definitely a workout making some wooden spoons (sanding away!). I have a deep appreciation for the craft especially after taking their one day spoon making workshop. What a treat to chat and explore the designs by such talented makers. I love how this city has grown to be a hub for such creative talents and artisans.

Fashion Love: Alpha60

They may be in opposite season and well known for their modern edgy shoes, but the Australian label Alpha60  AW14 collection is just as relevant and easy to wear no matter what season it may be. They've somehow integrated some of my favorite elements in an ensemble lately...from their neutral greys, the monochromatic look, pops of reds, stripes (can't have too many stripes in my wardrobe) and simple comfortable silhouettes.  And who can resist those striking shoes?Yes...definitely in my closet wishlist!

Textile Love: LUCKYBOYSUNDAY

It's time some for some colorful playful textiles with the bloomin' colors of spring. And the present and previous collections by Danish line LUCKYBOYSUNDAY may just fit the bill. With a background in fashion and art, textile designers Camilla Koerschen and Camilla Ebdrup founded the line featuring knitted art toys and home furnishings in 2007. According to the designers:

"We try to capture poetry. We adore the unsaid -it inspires your own imagination to create"

Design Function: To Showcase and Hang Clothes

3.18.2014





I'm loving the open design of clothing racks and other systems out there right now. Minimalist approach, yes...but it definitely requires some organization and thought to showcase your favorite wardrobe pieces. Maybe it'll get me to purge the clothing I haven't actually worn in years.Inspired? Now it's time to edit and organize!
