Grai: Designer Profile

Looking at gorgeous leather jackets in Opening Ceremony, I stumbled upon many up and coming designers.  My favorite jacket-maker had to be Grai.  The designer of Grai is Maya Yogev, a Los Angeles native.  Yogev has a pretty substantial background in design.  After fashion school in 2002, she worked under the designer, Rick Owens. At one point in her life, Yogev even designed a line of clothing for the band Black Sabbath.  Yogev’s line Grai was created to craft the perfect jackets and coats.  Yogev blends buttery leathers with harsher fabrics crafting beautiful textures and patterns. She drapes her jacket fabrics to look like sculptures. Her draping is not unlike that of Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s.  The collars on her coats are so amazing.  Imagine a sweater’s cowl neck on a leather jacket! Each seam is meticulously sewn as if to seem like the jacket is a piece of nature and can never be taken apart.
