Who is Malhia Kent?
We’re thrilled to launch the Petunia Studio, a playground to experiment with product, design, trims, and textiles. And a place where we can dream, create, produce and release limited edition collections and collaborations with special touches that surprise and delight.
Our first release outfits a favorite tote in the vibrant, unconventional spirit of the French design house, Malhia Kent. Woven on their special looms, Neon Intermix is a bold, textural hodgepodge of fashion-forward color and pattern disruption. This covetable, collectible designer textile will only be available in this small-batch release on petunia.com. Be sure to sign up for the announcement of its debut!
With a heritage rooted in Parisian couture, and the fabrics of Coco Chanel, Malhia Kent is renowned for its exceptionally original textiles. Placing absolute importance on creativity, their looms are some of the only ones still able to fully realize a designer’s vision by weaving with unique elements like feathers, glitter or ribbons, to create fabrics of artistic masterpiece. And once a particular design is used, whether for the runway or prêt-à-porter, it is catalogued, and not used again.
The extraordinary offerings of the Petunia Studio will be available in limited quantity, exclusively on petunia.com. These highly collectible items will sell out, so be sure you have early access by signing up to receive our emails.
We recently celebrated the launch of our new Color Block Collection by inviting a few friends to an alfresco spring brunch. The intimate fete was held at one of our favorite seaside venues in San Clemente, which brought a fresh ocean breeze to the affair. As we chatted, crafted, and dined together, new friends and old, we shared stories of motherhood and entrepreneurship, compared notes on The Bachelor, and played with each other’s sweet babies. The support and camaraderie around the table was powerful, and we realized that there is no better network than friends who cheer for you, louder than you would ever cheer for yourself.
The table was set with a clean palate as a reflection of our minimalist Color Block Collection.
We created keychains out of leather, personalizing them with the initials of our children using a wooden hammer and a metal letter stamp, and then a bit of paint. It was daunting at first, but after the first whack of the hammer, we realized it was pretty easy.
We toasted to success- as women, as mothers, as entrepreneurs. There was a lot to celebrate at that table, and a lot to chat about too!
It was a bit much for Karla Reed’s sweet babe. She opted to leave the chatting to the rest of us.
The bags of the Color Block Collection were explored, Instagrammed, Snapchatted, and Periscoped. And each attendee left with either a Downtown Tote or a Pathway Pack.
Thanks to all for coming! We had so much fun, and can’t wait to do this again!
