Designer of the Month: Ulla Johnson

By Maddy Weedle, Jun 03


Every month we'll be featuring a new designer that inspires us. This month we’re featuring the boho-chic Ulla Johnson. Born and raised in Manhattan by her archaeologist parents, Johnson’s signature style is influenced from the streets of New York City and from her family’s exotic travels.

 

Where You Can Find the Collection:

Second floor of Holt Renfrew in Women’s Contemporary. You can also follow Ulla Johnson @UllaJohnsonInc for regular style inspiration.

Humble Beginnings:

Johnson’s first fashion line, Eponymous was founded in 2000 after her graduation from university in psychology and women’s studies. Travelling around the world with her family shaped her love for textiles, and after completing university she dedicated her time to grow her fashion company organically and humbly.

Signature Style:

With a dedicated following across the US, Europe, Australia and Asia it’s no surprise that Johnson had her New York Fashion Week debut last September. She’s the go-to designer for effortless, bohemian-chic clothes that won’t cost you a fortune. Johnson focuses on creating pieces that carry love and spirit, and are hand made by artisans in Peru and India. Attention to detail has become her hallmark, using natural fibers, beautiful finishing and creating clothing with an ease of fit and form.

Spring 2015 Collection:

Johnson’s latest Spring 2015 collection was inspired from her trip to Marrakech, Morocco. We love how easy and flowy this collection is, and how the colours and textures capture the city of Marrakech. These pieces truly match how Johnson describes her own style as “easy, layered, nomadic.”

3 Pieces We Love from Ulla Johnson:

1) This easy-to-wear silk blouse is perfect for summer and looks great with a pair of jeans. 

 

Atlas Blouse, available at Holt Renfrew ($460)

 

2) This bohemian-chic jacket is hand-crocheted in Peru, and fringe embellished, one of the season's top trends. 

Pisco Jacket, available at Holt Renfrew ($695)

3)  This jumpsuit fully captures Johnson’s signature style with its fine tailoring and custom prints, it's also perfect for summer and easy to dress up or down.

Tamara Jumpsuit, available at Holt Renfrew ($662)
