Heather Hawkins Fresh

Designers We Love: Heather Hawkins

About: FRESH fans you know we always strive to keep you in the loop about the latest and greatest happenings in the crazy world of fashion. That is why we absolutely MUST tell you about one of our favorite designers, Heather Hawkins. Heather is a Charlotte native that currently lives in Los Angeles, California. Her line features jewelry, handbags, and accessories made with exotic leathers and semi-precious gemstones that she sources from around the world. Heather began her fashion career by happenstance when while she was washing a handbag she damaged it and decided to take it apart and reassemble it. The rest as they say is history, and today her collection has evolved from handbags into jewelry as well. Heather draws her inspiration from the world around her whether it is a seashell, a ribbon’s weave, or the tiles on a rooftop in Italy. Her pieces have been featured in magazines such as Lucky, InStyle, and Harper’s Bazaar

Why We Love Her: Heather’s pieces are unique and fashion forward. Her handbags come in a variety of styles, so there is a style to go with every outfit and occasion. Also, we love the fact that a majority of her handbags can be worn as a clutch or with a strap. Heather’s jewelry is both delicate and edgy. We love that it is easy to layer and that all of the pieces are very wearable. The jewelry and the handbags are made with exotic leathers and semi-precious materials that make them truly special pieces. The handbags all feature either suede or silk linings, which illustrates just how well crafter they are. Also, it doesn’t hurt that Heather is a Charlotte native and that all of her pieces are made in the USA.

Here are some of our favorite pieces:

Coobie Bra

FRESH Favorites: The Coobie Bra

Coobie BraFor those of you FRESH regulars, you know how much we LOVE our Coobies aka the MOST comfortable bra EVER. If you have never tried a Coobie bra, you are seriously missing out. The Coobie bra has no underwire, but still provides adequate support and coverage. We also love Coobies because they come in a variety of colors and can provide the look of wearing a camisole under a low cut shirt or sweater. The Coobie can be worn under a shear shirt as well for a sexier look without too much exposure. In addition, the Coobie is recommended by doctors for patients that cannot wear a underwire bra due to surgery.

The Coobie bras come in two sizes: 1. Size One: Fits a 32A-36D. 2. Size Two: Fits a 38D-42D. The bras come in the scoopneck with straps shown below with the option of lace or no lace. The Coobie also comes in a strapless bandeau style in lace as shown in the picture below or plain.

We say the Coobie is a MUST try! You may never want to go back to a regular bra again…we haven’t!
