Its here again – 1st Saturday in Old Kapaa Town! At a.ell atelier we are hosting a trunk show with Kai Kini Bikinis, we’ll have Kauai grown Taro Burgers, Tiago bringing the live music, and Maxine Graham will be using our windows as her canvas. There is a ton more happening around town so make sure and don’t miss it this weekend in Old Kapaa Town.
This Saturday Sept. 4th for the Old Kapaa Town Art Walk we will be featuring Denise Dion-Scoyni. I came to know Denise through my daughters school – Denise is the art teacher at Kauai Pacific School – and a fabulous one at that. I recently started carrying her beautiful tiles in the atelier. This Saturday she will be bringing in her original paintings as well. Don’t miss this chance to meet Denise and let her know how much you love her work! Please check out her website to see more
New to a.ell design! Take your caffeine fix to the next level with one of a kind burlap bags! Our friends at Small Town Coffee in Kapaa gave us some burlap bags, so not only will your new fashion cause a buzz with your friends, but you’re recycling too. The bags work great as reusable grocery bags, beach bags, purses, and anything else you can imagine. They range from $24-$32 and come in a wide variety of styles, sizes, and shapes. These wonderful new pieces are all hand crafted by our newest member to the a.ell team, Max Lemaire!
Whooh its been a busy couple weeks! While preparing for the eco fabulous fashion show at Kilohana we created quite a few new items to feature. Aaron Feinberg took some great shots at the eco show, to view photos visit his site at http://afeinphoto.com/Heath_And_Wellness/Pages/Best_Of.html#13
I am really inspired and grateful to the artists, volunteers, musicians, and everyone who helped in making this another super fun and successful event. Close to 50 of my local Kauai Ohana stepped up once again and I just want to say how amazed I am that you are walking your talk.
The collaboration between Takuyo and I is a really exciting one. She is hand painting on our bamboo and hemp clothing creating some spectacular one of a kind pieces. Takuyo is creating a sea life collection in which we are donating 10% of all sales to our local Save our Seas organization. To find out more about what they are doing please visit them at http://www.saveourseas.org/saveourseas/aloha.html
A.Fox created a bouquet of really fabulous hair pieces – these gorgeous creations are now available at the atelier.
We started a hip mens bamboo tee shirt line and are working on mens yoga pants as well – first pair out – working on the kinks but should be available soon!
There are 2 new flirty skirts – one made from bamboo knit, its short and sassy – great for these hot summer days, Ive been wearing mine constantly. The other is equally as sassy but made from a limited edition of linen fabrics, great for work, the market, or a dinner party.
Unfortunately these items are net yet available through the website – but stay in touch – hopefully you’ll see them soon. And almost everything was shot at the fashion show so look at Aarons website to see photos, otherwise come on down to Old Kapaa Town and visit us at a.ell atelier.
After much ado we’ve decided to evolve the Kapaa Art Walk to the 1st Saturday of the month. Which means we’re just a few days away from a fresh new release! This week at the atelier we have Lefty playing guitar along with Kaili showing her gorgeous paintings both outside on the sidewalk. Inside we have John Howards black light paintings and farm animal tees and tanks for both the ladies and the gents. Its still 4 days away so I’m guessing a few more artists will pop up to show what they have as well as the sidewalk is open to everyone!
So come on down, eat, dance, talk, and show that you think supporting our local folks is important – its not an easy path – but its just so fun!
