On the heels of a collection with Ruffian’s Brian Wolk and Claude Morais, Anthropologie tapped LA-based designer Koi Suwannagate to design a collection. According to WWD, the collection will be called Lawan after the Thai word for “beautiful,” the four-style lineup is Suwannagate’s first stab at a secondary collection slated to launch later this month. Lawan retails from $228 to $298, features a gown, two cardigans and a sleeveless top, all cut from wool blends and embellished with the designer’s signature frothy, hand-sculpted appliqués, and each piece represents her past bestsellers.
“We had so many requests for pieces with a more affordable price point,” explained Suwannagate. “But we make everything in-house and it would have been too expensive for us. Working with Anthropologie was a natural fit.”
