There’s a local brand that I love and especially adore working with and that brand is Louella Odié. Louella Odié has beautiful bags and scarves, yet the creation behind them is just as spectacular as their actual products. Mother and daughter team create the magic of Louella Odié. Karen, mom, is the artist behind the bag, and Lauren, daughter, runs the business side of things. Together they make a phenomenal team–one as a daughter of an artist to envy; I think it would be quite special to work with my own artist mom. (In fact, Joanie and I do scheme at how I could sell some of her art work over here at the bazaars–I definitely need to revisit this idea!) The other reason why I admire the Louella Odié brand has to do with the medium that Karen uses–another art form close to my family. Karen is a printmaker, just like my brother Adrian. I can appreciate with how demanding and labor intensive printmaking is: it is NOT an easy art form. The process of creating a print is quite arduous yet the final product is always so amazing. Each one of Louella Odie’s bag takes on a different print. Here, and for the entire week on Kremb de la Kremb, I will be highlighting the Louella Odié Lattice Collection. Lauren and Karen let me loan three bags, and during my Chinese New Year trip to Thailand I had the luxury of traveling with the set. It was so wonderful! I love each of the bags for different reasons–more on that this week. Until then, go take a look at the Lattice Collections at Louella Odié, and if you are so inclined to purchase, take 15% off with the code KREMBDELAKREMB!

What brand do you love?
Do you have brand that you just love because of their creativity and teamwork? I feel so inspired by the Louella Odié entrepreneurs embracing something they love and going with it. I long for a creative outlet that could somehow also become monetized. Maybe for now, I should feel lucky to just keep this blog as it is and appreciate the daily creative fullfillment it gives me. There’s no doubt I love getting dressed, and now I am trying to somehow figure out how to make that my longevity. Maybe one of these days I’ll get hired–hey maybe by you! In the meantime, I take great pleasure in meeting and knowing the creative people in my Hong Kong community as well as beyond. And for sure I enjoy the creativity found by writing Kremb de la Kremb.

PS. From Style Stories No. 12 Link Up
From the link up two weeks ago there were two looks that I definitely connected with. First up Zuma’s black tulle skirt is dreamy! I have a cream tulle skirt, yet seeing how tailored hers is gave me reason to maybe get mine tucked in and tailored. Mine is never slimming on me, rather very poofy. I love how classy she styled it with the kelly green lace. Zuma is very chic. Then, Suzanne is a woman after my own heart! I so desperately want to be wearing what she’s wearing but alas the cold, foggy, rainy weather over here in Hong Kong has not allowed for a hint of sandals to appear quite yet. I love how Suzanne mixed the fringe poncho with muted spring colors. It’s what I’m going for these days.
