Kindah Khalidy (what a great name) is a young artist and textile designer based in Northern California, she creates limited edition clothing and accessories alongside paintings and sculptures. Everything Kindah creates is absolutely a piece of artwork, her eye for colour, form and composition is exquisite, and yet all totally wearable and highly covetable. Taking inspiration from sweet shops (good idea) and pushing boundaries, “My designs are even a little bit out of my own comfort zone. My favorite reaction is when people scream and say ‘Whoa! What is that?’” (via Of a Kind) makes for some seriously sweet and exciting designs.
Kindah Khalidy pieces are available through her website and selected stockists, some pieces are completely hand painted and one of a kind, while others are limited print runs on silk, cotton and wool/silk blends. I never thought I’d feature a mumu but I have, so wow. So much cool stuff, I think that fold over clutch would have to be my favourite. Prices range from $38 for a clutch, $120 for a hand painted top to $285 for a mu mu.
