I was really excited to discover hair accessory line By Lilla. Their motto is “Rebel against the black elastic,” and looking at the collection, it’s easy to see they have done just that! Colette Feldman, Natalia Storm and Michelle Possin are the design team behind the 5 year old multifunctional line of handmade leather bracelets and elastic hair bands that double as necklaces and bracelets. These accessories not only look good, but serve a purpose. With numerous styles to choose from, the line offers everything from braided, lace and floral styles to edgy studded and animal printed leather. By Lilla retails from $10-$70, and can be found at Shop Kitson, Free People and Anthropologie. For more information click here.

LA Fashion Market Finds | Day 1:: Shibori-Ya Kahei

SHIBORIas_thelookbookphilosophy.com SHIBORI_1_thelookbookphilosophy.com SHIBORI5s_thelookbookphilosophy.com SHIBORI_1sa_thelookbookphilosophy.com SHIBORI4s_thelookbookphilosophy.com SHIBORI9s_thelookbookphilosophy.com SHIBORI_1sax_thelookbookphilosophy.com This week I was invited back to cover the LA Fashion Market shows at the CMC again. One of my favorite discoveries at the Select Trade Show was Shibori-Ya Kahei. I am so excited about this line! Shibori-Ya Kahei is a Japanese company that was primarily known for making traditional kimonos. Shibori is Japanese for “tye-dye”. Originally established as a textile brand, they have collaborated with many well known brands and created textiles for the likes of Issey Miyake and others. Over the years they have perfected a technique known as “Arashi” which is a Japanese word for “tornado”. They have taken the same arashi technique that was previously used for kimonos and applied it to denim, scarves and leather handbags. Although they still make kimonos, the application of the arashi technique to denim, handbags and scarves has created a renewed interest for the younger generation, and is helping to carry that traditional print into the future.

Shibori-Ya Kahei is newly debuting in the US and Japan and at this time is only available in Japan, but will soon be available in the US. (I’ll keep you posted! ☺)
