If there’s one thing I’ve learned after more than 90 days in quarantine, it’s that you have to be hopeful about tomorrow. So I am excited about ITO KISH Retail Season Two, happening this July and early August.
For this next season, I have invited other brands to our retail space. And, because life in quarantine has also taught me the importance of friendship, two of the creatives behind the brands are my very best friends. I am talking about Len Cabili of Filip + Inna and Apol Massebieau of Good Luck, Humans. Joining us, too, is potter Joey De Castro. With each brand, I am doing a collaborative piece. Proceeds of the first piece of each collab will go to World Vision to support the education of less fortunate kids.
Inspired by our trip to Bali last year, Len is coming up with an exclusive collection of clothing that mixes traditional Indonesian and local fabric. GREGORIA II is our collaborative work. She took the Gregoria Accent Chair and wrapped its balusters with handmade materials from the different indigenous groups that Filip + Inna works with.
Apol of Good Luck, Humans has been my friend for over 20 years. Since her return from France over eight years ago, our friendship has become terrific. She is launching new clothing pieces in our retail space. We are also collaborating on something exuberant – HARDIN a garden with her Lucky Buttons and hand-embroidered butterflies on the Arellano Vase. Imagine the Metropolitan Theater with a rooftop oasis.
I own a few of Joey De Castro’s pottery, and they are all beautiful. I am excited that his pieces will complement the ITO KISH Design collection this July. We are collaborating on a limited-edition collection, the LAMPARA accent table lamps, with the shade made from Joey’s vigorous earthenware.
I am looking forward to welcoming you to ITO KISH Retail Season Two.
