we named Elif after a literary friend of ours who weaved together a blindingly brilliant and hysterically funny novel about growing Turkish in American and researching Russian literature as a chosen profession. somehow she lyrically pieces together and achieves a mesmerizing eloquence about all her disparate and chaotic life experiences.
with that in mind, when dreaming up Elif we mixed together wavy lines, trapezoids, squares, dew drops, textural lace patterns and color in a way that speaks to us.
we like to think of Elif as a wardrobe statement piece that works year round. we’ve thrown it over shift dresses on summer evenings and we can’t wait to wrap it around our necks during the winter months.
