Mood [ April ]

Mood [ April ]

Here at Dandelion Post, we are constantly finding inspiration around our beloved city of Oakland - whether it be the local architecture, vibrant street art, a sidewalk vendor's floral arrangement or just a good old fashion sunset. In an effort to hold on to and share these moments, we have taken to translating them into wearable outfits -- just for you!

For our first go, we stuck close to home. If you have popped into our store location, I am sure you stopped to admire the mural on the side of our building done by incredible local artist, Lena Gustafson. This mural has us feeling the coolness of the navy as it coincides with the vibrant pops of color; of finding or making your own paradise while remaining in a city dwelling.

Studio Visit with Corinne Collection

Studio Visit with Corinne Collection

To truly appreciate the Corinne Collection, you need to touch and feel the fabric. Susan Kim, the owner and designer of Corinne, sources gloriously soft fabrics that are knitted in the USA using threads that are spun and dyed by a family-run Los Angeles, California mill. Each garment is then cut, sewn, and packed by Susan herself. It's no wonder why this carefully crafted brand has become a customer favorite. 

We had a chance to meet Susan at her new studio, located in a historic Los Angeles building, to view her 2018 Spring collection and ask a few questions about her and her brand.

Q&A with Susan Kim

Your collections are made of locally-made knits. What made you decide to work with these fabrics? 

Before I started Corinne, I always gravitated towards clothing of higher quality fabric so when I went in search of sourcing for fabric, I found that the better quality knits were made locally. The cost for fabric was higher than fabric made in China but it just made sense to work with this fabric because I could not get over the quality.

 

What is your favorite piece in the Fall 2017 collection?

It definitely has to be the Devin Jumpsuit—I wear it so much that it is really embarrassing. 

 

What drove you to clothing design?

I was always creative and interested in art but found that clothing design was immensely gratifying in that it is constantly evolving and changing. 

 

Where does your label name, Corinne, come from?

Corinne means ‘beautiful maiden’ in French and in the Urban Dictionary it means the ‘best of the best and the girl you want to be’. I loved the meaning of the name and it had street cred so I knew I had to use Corinne as the label’s name. 

 

Living in Los Angeles must be fun, tell us what you like to do in your free time. Any favorite shops or food spots?

I work really long hours so I don’t go out very much but since my studio is in Downtown Los Angeles, I try to go to new places around the area. I recently found a place that has the best acai bowls called Om Nom Organics. Their Mystic Paleo - Black Magic has almond butter and toasted coconut granola that is absolutely amazing. And, Gentle Monster recently opened up their flagship not too far from my studio and it is just a dream to be in there.

The Micro-Factory

The Micro-Factory
During our recent trip to Portland, Oregon we got to see where Make it Good, well, makes everything good. It's a small factory where they screen print, cut, sew, and package their designs. I popped in on an unusually quiet Monday, but did get to witness them blocking the fabric to cut the Sails Spaghetti Strap Dress and check out all the different machines. It is amazing how each machine has a specific purpose and the many steps involved in making one garment. 

A large table is centered in the room for cutting. The garment pieces are cut after the fabric has been dyed (off-site), screen printed, and dried.

A custom tool was built to make screening large pieces possible with one person. 

Here the back of the Marine Rain Dress from the Fall 2015 is getting rained on.

After screening, the fabric goes in the large conveyor dryer. 

 

Once the printing is complete and each pattern piece is cut, the garments are sewn into the tops, dresses, sweatshirts, and leggings you see in our shop.

Spring Loup

Spring Loup

There is still plenty of rain to fall in California and while it is much needed and welcomed, it's okay to long for those sunnier days to come. We are thinking about perfectly warm weather for wearing these Spring/Summer pieces by Loup. 

Designed by Danielle Ribner and manufactured in New York City's garment district, Loup has a distinct style that combines modern shapes with a nostalgic French twist. This season showcases crinkle cottons, denim, chambray, and Ikat in an Americana (uh or French) color palette. 

Here are some pieces looking oh so cute on the Loup model (with her amazing hair) that we will have in the shop and online in February and March
