AKIKO- Made in L.A.

A new ladies line this winter at Veridis is Akiko.  This is an incredibly well priced line with really unique feminine pieces, all of which are made in Los Angeles.  This vertical production system allows for pieces to be produced quicker and at sharper price points.  Akiko began her company in 2004 and is known for her great knits, her beautiful colors and prints, and her feminine chic.  All of the pieces are easy and special.

Note the tie waist tunic top featuring black tie-dye and an intricately beaded collar.  This tie-dye is far from hippie but does have a certain “tribal-chic” edge to it (a trend that we will see again this spring).  This is a special piece that can be dressed up or down depending on your occasion.  What a comfortable unique piece to add to your wardrobe!

Next up from Akiko is this gorgeous dark blue dress that features an amazing back not to mention great details to keep you interested in the front as well.  Ruching and draping are the name of this game and Akiko does an incredible job.  The dress is a show stopper and carries a fantastic price point.  The fabric is a stretchy rayon spandex and carries with it a slight sheen.  Gorgeous and easy- who could ask for anything more.  We are also carrying a clean spaghetti strap black dress from the line that has more of that great draping.  New Years Eve with nothing to wear? Not anymore!
