A thoughtful design process and a desire for timeless, quality clothing were the driving forces behind San Francisco based designers Anna Chiu and Valerie Santillo’s newly launched label Kamperett. The design duo is set to release their sophomore collection later this summer, which was inspired by vintage loungewear and 70s evening wear. Floor skimming dresses, playful jumpsuits and lived in t-shirt dresses are all impeccably tailored with subtle yet distinguishable details like alluring open backs, slightly puffed sleeves and conveniently placed pockets. With it’s construction from high grade silks and Japanese cotton blends, Kamperett is the kind of clothing you want to move and live in. The effortless ease of the collection has us looking forward to what this exciting new brand has in store next.

If you’re a fan of Wes Anderson, you’ll especially appreciate the three scenes she’s replicated from some of my favorite Anderson flicks, including The Darjeeling Limited and The Royal Tenenbaums. Just look at all the ornate details like the hand-painted luggage, wallpaper, and miniature toiletries! It’s all so good, I greedily want to see more . . .
