Lisa Mayock and Sophie Buhai, the masterminds behind brand Vena Cava, have created Viva Vena!, a new line with all you’d expect from their staple brand—at a lower price point. (Under $200, to be exact.) That’s right, you’d be hard-pressed to find anything that would put you in the poorhouse (or restrict you to eating Ramen Noodles for a month). Silk details and organic jerseys skim the surface for what shoppers are in store for. The Viva Vena! tees, tanks and dresses will feature signature hand-drawn prints and Neo-Dada photo collages (viva Jasper Johns!). To sum it up: it’s that casual, yet somehow put-together look LA has made famous (after all the designers are Angelenos at heart). The new line is now available at Barneys, Bergdorfs, Opening Ceremony and Saks, among others.
