Live in lovers, best buds and co-founders of coveted magazine Counter Journal, Bonnie and Zack talk about what makes them collectively tick, their best fashion faux pas (by ‘best’ we mean skivvies) and the hej hej pressie they chose for each other this Christmas. Naw.
In this edition of Behind the Seams, we get to know our expert sewing team Crystal and Mr Luo, who have supported hej hej from our humble beginnings to bring our custom, small collections to life - nothing mass produced about it, ya hear.
Our linen savant, aficionado and supplier of luxury threads. Our sounding board, enabler of new ideas and custom fabric creator. Based in Shanghai, with decades of experience in the business and relationships formed from fibre to fabric, Yvonne provides us a supply chain with quality, care and consideration woven in.
The perfectionist fingers behind hej hej’s designs, the namesake of Babydoll Savage and a like-minded lover of all things linen, Rie is our talented pattern maker. Born and trained in the home of Toyota - Nagoya, Japan, it was the New Zealand lifestyle that drew her to our land and two friendly mothers that landed her a place in our crew.
Alice and Kiki, Kiki and Alice. Kikalice, if you will. Linen lovers, a match made in cashmere heaven and the beautiful minds behind your favourite label – if we say so ourselves.
