Viviana Uchitel

ZiabirdComment

“To create, to experiment, to search for unusual materials, to investigate forms, to abandon preconceived ideas about what clothes should look like… I have always used different, unexpected materials, such as rubber threads, metal pieces found in old hardware stores or resin stones, guided, by the idea of combining new textures on the same color. I guess, deep inside, I was trying to weave, dye or sow seeking for an unknown end, while understanding that what matters is the beauty of the trip itself, the search. By the end, the finished garment is no longer mine but for whoever will wear it in the future.”

VIVIANA UCHITEL (Buenos Aires, 1958) was raised among painting, theatre, sculpture and dyeing lessons in an intellectual family, typical of the Argentine golden 1960s. ”My mother was in love with art and beauty, a passion that would extend to paintings, books, and -naturally- to lovely clothes and design: not luxury, but beauty. A passion that she would later transmit to her children“. It is not unusual then, that by the age of six, Uchitel had already begun her long artistic education. First, at the Escolinha de arte, later at the Instituto de arte Lalbardén and at the Fine Arts School while at the same time taking painting lessons under Noé Nojechowicz and María Luisa Manassero, sculpture lessons under Antonio Pujía and dyeing techniques under Tana Sachs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love Tanjane

ZiabirdComment

LOVE: as in sexy, irresistible, like chocolate.

TAN: as the body in the sun, an elemental sensation.

JANE: as in Tarzan, embodying the essence of woman, connected with nature.

LOVE TANJANE is an entirely feminine collection created by designer Sonia Erneux.

Sonia grew up in Brussels, Belgium. Sonia moved to NYC then LA then Ojai...

The line has a European sexiness infused with the essence of California ease.

LOVE TANJANE is a reflection of the designer's sensual connection with OJAI, California landscape and lifestyle and is based on the needed essentials of a woman's wardrobe. The natural fabrics are hand treated with low impact dyes.

With its easy styling and sexy comfort, LOVE TANJANE has a loyal following among Hollywood celebrities including Kate Hudson, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Jennifer Lopez, Tori Spelling, Amanda Bynes, Gwen Stefani, Nicole Richie.

The LOVE TANJANE collection constantly evolves - a living wardrobe that is never indulgent but somehow decadent, that makes a woman feel good in her skin and comfortable with her body.

Like basking in the sun, feeling the earth underfoot.

Alive. Essential.

LOVE TANJANE is produced and hand dyed in OJAI California.

Louise Misha

ZiabirdComment

We are 2 friends, and it is while we were on a trip in India that we decided to create our brand Louise Misha.

Because we are both really close to our family, the label's name itself comes from a dear grandmother called 'Louise' and a beloved mother nicknamed 'Misha'.

Our universe is all about bohemian style , nostalgia and softness.

 

Inspired by our travels and vintage details our first collection was launched in Winter 2012 and was exclusively composed of jewelry for little girls.

Little by little Louise Misha has grown to become a full line of ready to wear, jewelry and accessories for little girls.

Then in 2014, the Women collection was born, which became a full line in the Summer 2016.

 

In Winter 2017, the Baby line will join the collection, with clothes starting at 3 months and baby accessories.

Gallabia

ZiabirdComment

When Etti Zayeg and Merav Hadari first met, it was obvious something special was about to happen. Their common love for fashion and style brought to life Gallabia – a lifestyle brand that incorporates fashion with sport, yoga, travel and culture.

After years of travelling across the world and exploring fashion from various cultures, we have come to the conclusion that comfort and color are the two most important aspects of fashion. It is a known fact that colors can change the way we feel and have a tremendous effect on our self-esteem; and once you combine the right colors with the right outfit – you’re no longer shopping for clothes, but for a great experience.

Having realized that, we developed a unique color scheme especially for our brand. Our colors, textures and effortless forms make for a one-of-a-kind adventure. The brand reveals diverse pieces, from effortless caftans and casual shirts to evening dresses and hand-crafted jewelry. The brand combines timeless ethnic styles with urban styles that suit women of all ages. Our signature item is the caftan, which we took from its original form and turned into an urban, timeless piece.

Since launching its first store, Gallabia has grown from a small boutique brand to a luxury brand with many devoted followers.

De Palma Leather

ZiabirdComment

Bryan started working with leather in 2003, after being inspired to make a hand sewn bag for his then-girlfriend. The initial design led to wallets, belts & a variety of bags, which he began to sell at craft fairs in New York City. While living in N.Y., Bryan's leatherwork gained a following, spanning from the east village to the upper west side. In 2006, after launching the first DE PALMA collection, the line was carried by United Arrows in Tokyo, Japan. Since then, DE PALMA's following has grown to include many stores in Japan and across the U.S. alike.

Bryan's grandparents hailed from southern Italy & his grandmother worked as head seamstress in New York's garment industry upon arriving in the U.S. The DE PALMA brand was named after Bryan's mom... Palma. In the early 1970s she made herself leather bags & a belt for Bryan's father before they got married. The few pieces she made are still worn by his family members today.

Having grown up next to the ocean, Bryan spent time as a kid working on tuna boats & summers working in the fishing industry in Alaska. Bryan is self-taught & his inspiration comes from vintage leatherwork & sea life. Each piece combines traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design.

Most everything is cut, sewn & assembled by hand in California; the hum of a machine in the DE PALMA studio is heard on only the rarest of occasions. The designs are simple, classic & made to be enjoyed for generations. We mark each piece by hand in a subtle way (so there's no label showing). You can spot a piece by DE PALMA by look & quality alone.

Ace & Jig

Lynn ManockComment

ace&jig is a textile love story. in 2009, we set out to create a seasonless women’s collection from one fabrication: our own yarn-dye, woven fabric. we wanted to create timeless garments from our own textile designs, as interesting in texture as in color and pattern. effortless clothing that could be worn in many ways, for many years. 

     we are constantly inspired by our own ever-growing textile collections. at the start of each new season, we sit down with our most exciting finds—from the feedsack bags of antique french linens to japanese boro quilts—and begin to create our own woven story.

     our search for the ideal manufacturer led us to India, where we found experienced textile specialists weaving on anient wooden hand looms. several times a year we travel there and work one-on-one with weavers to create our authentic fabrics. our indian partners share our core values and practice the holistic kaizen philosophy of continuing to improve. not only do they provide free childcare, but they also use reclaimed water to grown organic produce for their employees.

      our colors and silhouettes shift, but each collection is anchored by the stripe. we believe yarn-dye stripes, whether created by alternating textures or through pops of saturated color, are an iconic and timeless medium, and an endless source for reinvention.

ace&jig is based in brooklyn, new york, and portland, oregon, and is composed of cary vaughan and jenna wilson, who met more than ten years ago as fashion design interns and instantly bonded over their shared loved of antique textiles.  after cary gave birth to daughter alice and jenna had her son james, they felt the time had come to collaborate again. thus, ace&jig was born.

 

Sara Roka

Clothing DesignersLynn ManockComment

Some of the greatest moments in feminine fashion and style history happened when women borrowed items from the wardrobe of their significant others. Sara Roka took up the challenge to transform the traditional man’s shirt into a fresh, feminine and modern must-have, while retaining the quality, comfort and finishing of the original. The luxurious cotton fabrics available in Italy, such as poplin and oxford, the wonderful trims and details, and exceptional craftsmanship naturally led Sara to creatively design a collection consisting of innovative and sexy blouses, dresses, and tops, while maintaining the essence of the timeless men’s classic shirt.

Skemo

Clothing DesignersLynn ManockComment

“I design for women who are individuals, women with personal styles that exude confidence wherever they go”, says Romina.  “The Skemo woman loves the colors of the ocean, the sparkle of sand, and finds true beauty in natural elements like shells, crystals and even wood. But make no mistake about it, as much as she is a natural beauty, she still loves looking and feeling sexy in everything she wears”.

Alashan Cashmere

Lynn ManockComment

Alashan Cashmere Company was founded in early 2004 by Donald Fox. Donald had spent the prior 11 years at one of the most respected cashmere groups in the world - Forte Cashmere Company. With skills and knowledge gained from trading in cashmere raw materials and finished product, it was an easy decision to start Alashan Cashmere Company when Forte Cashmere closed its doors in 2004. The name Alashan refers to an area of western Inner Mongolia Province, China. The Alashan region, through a combination of climactic, geographic and dietary conditions, is the literal home to the world's finest cashmere and camel hair.
