Framed – Fa Empel caught my eye, coming out of Intelligentsia on Abbot Kinney, sporting shades she designed for her company, CAST Eyewear. She was visiting from Bali, in LA for both work and Coachella. She described her style as always evolving, depending on her mood and hair style.
Baliwood - She prefers to shop vintage and thrift and has a lot of her silver and leather pieces custom made. When I asked where she likes to shop, she caught me a little off guard with, “I am from Bali. We make stuff over there. We don’t really shop.”
If you like her shades, her limited edition white version is still available here.
The Skinny - I’m phasing back onto the grid after some traveling, am firmly planted back in Los Angeles and looking forward to sharing some fun LA personalities, NYC archives and upcoming videos.
