Kreeya, a brand new online shop offering the best of the Bay Area’s independent fashion, features new designers each week. One of the latest to hit the site is Kathleen van der Spek, a San Francisco-based designer whose versatile tops strike just the right balance between casual and chic.
Working with soft fabrics such as micro modal and silk jersey knit, van der Spek’s apparel is as ready to hack around on the weekend paired with jeans as it is for a night at the wine bar – just trade the flats for heels. For more on van der Spek, her design inspiration and her life on a sailboat (yes, she lives on one) check out the recent interview with her on the Kreeya blog.
Last but not least, should you find yourself in the market for one of van der Spek’s latest pieces, now available just in time for the holidays on Kreeya, shipping is free for orders over $75 and returns are always free.
Want more Kreeya? Here’s the scoop:
Launched in November, Kreeya (Sanskrit for “positive action”) connects independent fashion designers with busy, fashion-forward, locally-minded professionals who may not have time to traverse the city in search of unique apparel and accessories. More than just an online shopping site, Kreeya is a place to plug into the inspiration, ideas and stories behind the San Francisco Bay Area fashion scene through designer interviews, social media and community-minded efforts. Each year, Kreeya donates one percent of its sales to a scholarship fund benefiting a graduating fashion student of California College of the Arts. Shop Kreeya for the latest apparel from independent designers such as Miranda Caroligne, DEMA, Bush + Leavenworth, Kathleen van der Spek and more. With a full line-up of featured designers arriving on the site in the coming weeks and a thriving local fashion community to share it with, Kreeya is just getting started.
