Another week, another influx of creative and unique designers.
The Israel-based bag line Meckela is truly a family affair. Sisters Ofir (also known as Meck) and Ela founded the brand after reconnecting with their creativity on a trip through Asia. The line is something of a tribute to the women in their family, who the sisters describe as “strong and gentle, assertive and feminine, careerist and family-oriented.” These inspiring women took a group jaunt through Europe before they settled into married life, and it is this trip that inspired the Meckela aesthetic: Beautiful, understated and classic.
Milliner Lisa Battaglia believes that a hat can completely transform any look. That’s why she creates hats that turn traditional styles on their heads (so to speak). Lisa makes each hat by hand, sculpting the materials just so for a piece that is completely original. Inspired by memories and iconic images, Lisa calls her aesthetic “modern vintage.” Her pieces are creative, modern nods to a time when hats were essential accessories, so we find this description quite fitting.
