ONIKAI’s new cut n’ sew line is now at SIXHUNDRED in downtown Los Angeles! SIXHUNDRED is a high end, stylish but not uber trendy boutique in the heart of LA, that thrives on supporting Los Angeles based designers, as well as cool handmade and one of a kind vintage garments. The vibe of the store is chill, the staff is sweet, you will enjoy your shopping experience for sure! You can now find the new ONIKAI jumpsuits, tops, hooded dress, and some screen tees at SIXHUNDRED 600 S Spring St.
ONIKAI was just picked up by a vintage and small designer boutique in Portland, OR called the Funk Parlor. They have AMAZING vintage leather, suede and novelty jackets. I bought one for $25 that looks like a vintage Ralph Lauren. Not gonna lie, it made me almost pee my pants a little. If you are looking for an ONIKAI tee, they can now be found at the Funk Parlor.
Happy Thanksgiving to all the fashionistas, artists, musicians, designers and ONIKAI fans! We hope you have a lovely holiday and spend it with someone you love! (and eat lots of Turkey) Our turkey needed a face lift so I helped him out a little bit. Now on with my travels, be back soon Los Angeles….
I’m pretty sure that everyone loves the Victoria’s Secret fashion show…. but this year I was really surprised by the actual craftsmanship that went into the outfits & wings, particularly the country themed outfits which featured straw, kitchen plaids and lots of lace. Super Cute. Going into Spring/Summer 2011 we will actually see some country themes in woman’s contemporary, but for now I am more than happy than to adorn a country girl bra and pantie set.
I am freaking obsessed with this Marc by Marc Jacobs Marc-up, I mean make-up pouch. ($48 on Shopbop.com) I think it’s the little dogs that did me in. This is on my x-mas wish list for sure 🙂 SO cute. xx
Emma Watson dazzles at the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, in a LBD by Rafael Lopez. She is absolutly perfect, as is this Rafael Lopez number. Not many people could pull of that dress, that haircut, or the red pin accessory that was also adorned by her costar Daniel Radcliff but she pulls off the entire ensemble glamorously.
I was just WAITING for some lame ass celebrity to wear one of the super cute Spirit Hoods… luckily I actually like Khloe K. I actually met the Spirit Hood designers at Magic this year and I am UBER obsessed as everyone knows that I LOVE hoods. I put hoods on anything I can get away with for my own line LOL I really want one but they are slightly over-priced in my opinion, so I think I’m gonna go to the fabric district and pick up some faux fur for $20 and make one for myself. 🙂 cheers!
Location: Chandler Bike Path in Noho... AMAZING murals and walls. We took up an entire gated area with all of our crap. lol Grace (model) getting her hair done in the background. Me (gray tights) Trying on all of the shoes.
Now time to review over 800 photos, pick my favorites and start edits! Excited for relaunch and new website! xx
Los Angeles is beautiful of course… but starting this weekend and into Jan. I am on a personal quest of travel, design and self discovery. I am going to start the weekend with the completion of my line relaunch photo shoot for my new ad campaign! And celebrating into next week with fancy dinners, late nights out with friends, date nights, & even some pampering. Then I am OFF!… to Portland, OR for Thanksgiving with some much needed R&R, shopping and family time…. then begins my 2 month expedition. Portland, Vegas, DC, New York, Vegas again, Colorado and Texas. Some for work, lots for play, and I will be taking many inspiration photos along the way and hope to capture some new design ideas when I’m gone! I can not wait for my Europe trip next year! Cheers to inspiration, work and fun! I will be posting photos when I return.
Wish me luck at the shoot tomorrow. xx Designer/CEO Oni.
