“Whitley Kros is a character we created to inspire us. She is a traveler and a wanderer. Where she goes, what she reads, what she listens to is what inspires each collection. It’s the contents of her suitcase, as if it were to fly open in an airport, you would hopefully see our collection…” -Marissa Ribisi & Sophia Coloma
The Fall 2009 Whitley Kros presentation included an art and video installation at the Miauhaus in Los Angeles. The event was hosted by Erika Christensen and attended by Giovani Ribisi, Beck, Devandra Banhart and more.
For Fall 2009 Whitley Kros is on a backpacking trip through all of Eastern Europe listening to Yoko Ono on her iPod and embracing the gypsy lifestyle. She then takes off to England to enjoy the green countryside, followed up by some shopping in London.
