I met Rumi, founder and designer of Rumi Murakami, a few month ago when I just had moved to Hawaii and started connecting to local designers, creatives and like-minded people. We clicked right away on our first meeting and sharing the same sense of style and fashion, I immediately got excited about the launch of her first collection.
So on June 7th I was invited to the Rumi Murakami launch party at HIFI Coop, Ward Warehouse, Honolulu.
The whole collection is a composition of classic but edgy pieces made of natural fabrics. I love the menswear inspired details and her tailoring combined with soft, flowing fabrics that make every piece really unique. Her collection is characterized by pure simplicity and elegance. You can easily combine the pieces for an effortless, pulled-together daytime look, yet they are classy enough to add a few tasteful accessories for an evening out. Best of all, they will make you look awesome on a bicycle and won’t expose too much on a windy day or get caught up in your gears.
We’re excited to work with Rumi in the future, but until then check out more about the brand on Facebook and we’ll keep you posted when the collection will be available in stores.
