Here’s an interesting new clothing brand out of Los Angeles we thought we would turn you onto, because it’s fresh and unique – and highly artistic, The brand is Aiko – and its website is IAmAiko.com. It’s being sold in LA at Neimans, Barneys, Saks and Madison – and it’s rare that anybody gets into all those stores. Online, you can check it out at Saks.com and Shopbop.com, and in New York, it’s being sold at Bergdorf’s, Bloomingdales, Intermix, Scoop and more.
The brand is run by Sean Barron, a fashion mogul who was behind the lines Katyone Adeli and Joie – both major, and by singer/artist/designer Cynthia Mittweg, whose blogs you have probably seen on Fashionrules.com from time to time. Cynthia wrote the song on the IAmAiko website, and sings it – she also models, and is a woman of many artistic talents. Cynthia’s also the Creative Director of Aiko, which sprung up two years ago. The name means “lovely child” in Japanese.
