To date, Saga Kakala has presented 3 collections, each one designed by a different designer.
Saga Kakala’s first collection, Kachina, was designed by Helga Bjornsson, a Haute Couture Art Director formerly of the prestigious Louis Feraud fashion house in Paris. The Kachina collection draws its inspiration from the colorful Kachina dolls made by the Hopi Indians in Northern Arizona.
Saga Kakala’s second collection, Shizuka, was designed by karlssonwilker inc. The collection is a celebration to distortion in a visual story of contrasting elements. karlssonwilker is the New York-based design studio founded by Icelander Hjalti Karlsson and Jan Wilker from Germany. Their work ranges from print and identities to signage and sculptural installations.
Saga Kakala’s latest collection, Goddesses, is designed by Katrin Olina Petursdottir, a designer who works in a variety of media including illustration and product design. Katrin Olina is known for her rich visual language, built on research, experimentation and intuitive creative drawing process, which combines the use of technology with the hand drawn.
