Currently in Tenerife, I had the chance to meet the owners and the two powerhouse fashionistas behind the Canary Islands based, vintage vault, MIKIMONO. Located in La Laguna, the store is a literal goldmine of well edited vintage pieces ranging from punk, 60′s, 80′s, Dynasty Glam, and high-fashion-senora of yesteryear. I spent about 5 hours at MIKIMONO yesterday making selections for our #laislabonita lookbook, to be shot this coming Monday, God willing the shoes make it through customs, FINGERS CROSSED!
Co-owners Paloma and Laura have created a loyal following of shoppers, editors, stylists and designers who shop MIKIMONO regulary–based on the success of their first store, a second location will open shortly. I met there with the stylist, hair and make-up, and model for our first ever international lookbook at MIKIMONO, and we edited down 10 amazing looks with pieces from their vault archive. La Isla Bonita, will be shot around the Canary Islands, capturing the insane beauty of this volcanic Spanish paradise, and will featuring 8 upcoming Jeffrey Campbell styles which will be featured on Solestruck by November(ish). Stay tuned.
Sending a GIANT thank you to the sweet chicas who own MIKIMONO. Thank you for letting us pull and use clothes from your vault as well as prepping and staging our lookbook at your store! Love you guys! BESITOS!
Paloma and Laura, our new friends from MIKIMONO.
