Kaight is an elusive boutique, it’s hard to gauge just how special it is until you’ve been there. And once you are in on the secret, it’s hard to shop anywhere else. I always call Kaight the Barney’s of the eco-world. Everything’s green, but more importantly, everything is chic and has serious cool cred. Kinda like the owner Kate McGregor, friend and longtime GGA fan – her cuteness (and the cuteness of her rescued mutt) knows no bounds. We digress.
We are loving that Kate has been influencing some not-so-vegan lines to create vegan collections exclusively for Kaight! Collina Strada is a bag line influenced by Maison Martin Margiela, Proenza Schoulder, Prada, Lanvin, Hermes, and Balenciaga that is Los Angeles based. Hillary Taymour, the designer, has just launched a vegan leather line EXCLUSIVE to Kaight. This Fall 2011 collection is made from recycled canvas printed with eco inks and vegan leather. Hopefully this collection will do so well that Hillary will stop using “eco-leathers” for good and get on the veggie train. If these two bags are any indication of what’s to come for Collina Strada’s vegan pieces for Kaight, we foresee a whole lotta ladies dumping their Birkin’s right quick.
The collection includes THE MOTO (bike bag), THE CARTELLA above (can’t you totally see Aniston rocking this on the back of Theroux’s custom bike?) and the classic SIERRA below (featuring our favorite color combos of all time.) All bags in both collections are made in NYC.
