Lawan, named after the Thai word for 'beautiful' is Los Angeles-based Koi Suwannagate's first collaborative partnership and has been in the works for over two years. Available today in Anthropologie stores, the collection—all priced under $300—features two cardigans, a gown and a sleeveless top. Each piece is embellished with Suwannagate's signature hand-worked appliqués.
In addition to the secondary line, the designer is also launching a gift collection for the holiday season, sold exclusively on her website. The cashmere 'Him & Her' fingerless gloves (at left)—his face with a cigarette appliqué, her face with an attached grosgrain ribbon—retail for $285. Also included in the special holiday collection are whimsical brooches, beanies, and a pineapple shaped cashmere handbag for $1,200.
