2018 Spring Playlist

2018 Spring Playlist

It's already Spring! This season we put together a mix of good grooves and female power to brighten these cloudy and not quite warm enough days. Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band leads with their psychedelic song, "Where There’s Woman". Kleenex-Lilliput's, an all-woman Swiss band, hit the repetition hard with their post-punk anthem "DC-10". Another notable track is a recently re-issued disco-infused pop track "You've got a woman" by the Dutch band Lion. Another favorite of mine, we finish off with an underground 80's pop vibe from Mark Renner with "Saints and Sages". We hope you enjoy!

Spring Pop-up w/Lacson Ravello

Spring Pop-up w/Lacson Ravello

We are hosting San Francisco designer, Lacson Ravello on May 12 from 12pm-3pm! Come meet the designer and check out their newest collection full of classic stripes, bold red florals, and feminine details. We will be pre-celebrating Mother's Day at the Pop-up with mimosas and mini floral giveaways. We hope to see you there! 

 

Lacson Ravello Pop-up

From the designer:

The story of LACSON RAVELLO begins with strong family roots in the garment industry. Kristina Lacson McConnico was born to Filipino parents and descended from a long line of dressmakers and fashion designers—grandmothers, aunts, and cousins. Upon establishing her own brand, she incorporated her surname, Lacson, and her grandmother’s maiden name, Ravello. For her, this family name captures the heritage and values that define her clothing line—a tradition of strong craftsmanship and quality materials, combined with a modern and design-driven approach.

Originally from St. Louis, Kristina knew at a young age that she wanted to follow her family’s path in the fashion world. A skilled visual artist during her teenage years, she moved to Los Angeles to attend Otis College of Art & Design. Early exposure to leaders and icons in the fashion industry had a profound influence on her evolution as a designer.

After college, she relocated to San Francisco and worked for companies such as Gap Inc., Bebe, and the Gymboree Corporation—in addition to building her expertise as a design consultant for smaller fashion labels and startups. Her two decades of industry experience have led her around the world numerous times, from production facilities in Asia to buying and research trips in Europe and all over the U.S. This global perspective followed Kristina as she created the LACSON RAVELLO brand. Her dedication to being a citizen of the world while keeping a relaxed California sensibility continues to inform her life and her work.

Kristina currently lives in Oakland with her husband John and their cats Coco and Clementine. She is also a breast cancer survivor and thriver.

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.
