LOVELY LILLA LANE
Thora Moss is the creator and designer behind her label and shop Lilla Lane. Her clothing is inspired by her upbringing in the sophisticated and artistic community of East Hampton, New York. Thora, a 30-year resident of Bali, named the label as a tribute to the street she lived on in East Hampton that was named after her stylish mother Lilla. Her designs are inspired by her journeys throughout the world, but maintain an easygoing Hamptons and Bali feel. Each piece comes with a handmade feature that is a showcase for Balinese craftsmanship. Now available at the company’s first international store in Singapore at Cluny Court.

Here the batiks come in luxurious fabrics like silk and chiffon and it’s so chic that it flies off the shelves in their shop and can be seen around the world on some of the most picky fashionistas. This is an artisans product not something that is mass produced as each piece is hand made.
