Elisa Dahan has created an elegant, versatile new brand called Dodiee. I’ve known Elisa for many years now, and I have always been an admirer of her taste level and personal sense of style. She designed for a different label for a long time, until finally launching Dodiee.
It’s refreshing to see a collection that has no interest in trends. The pieces designed by Rachel Scott for Diotima, founded in 2021, are all unique and artisanal. The crochet pieces making up the bulk of the collection are all hand made in Jamaica. They exemplify the unique skills needed to execute in such an impeccable manner.
This is a seriously good collection. Launched only a bit over a year ago, it has the look and feel of a well-established collection. But this is no surprise considering its roots. Founded by Laura Vazquez and Nina Khosla, and designed by Paul Helbers, it was bound to be something special.
Kim Shui is a dynamic and daring designer. Her looks are young and vibrant, and she doesn’t hesitate to take chances, yet at the same time, her silhouettes and styles are quite wearable. She has an obvious talent for draping, and her fabric choices are diverse, but immensely flattering.
