BUS STOP X + KkCo in DTLA

KkCos lead designer & female powerhouse Kara Jubin.

BUS STOP a women’s shoe shop in Philadelphia, paired its colorful designer shoes with new fashion brand KkCo in LA.

Our unique shoes look STUNNING with designer Kara Jubin’s garments. Both of our designs are handmade & we value the slow fashion movement. Kara’s womenswear line JUST launched this Spring and it’s already getting a lot of traction on the scene, featured on celebs Keke Palmer & Dua Lipa, and highlighted in fashion platforms: Fashionista, i.D., Teen Vogue, The Zoe Report, Coveteur, Who What Wear, Refinery 29, Vogue, & Shön Magazine.

The BUS STOP girls traveled WEST #busstopontheroad to explore the unique different neighborhoods in LA and gain inspiration for our next BIG adventure – a BUS STOP store in Los Angeles! Our lovely home was the Ace Hotel in DTLA, and we ate & drank our way around the city (more on that later).

The first pit-stop was the Fashion District to link up with Kara to produce a photo/video shoot. At KkCo’s studio we paired our gold and white leather Daisy Pumps, hot pink ponyhair Rosa & tan ponyhair Nudo V Booties, & orange, blue and gold leather Portokalia Oxfords with her gorgeous pieces.

Do you love it as much as we do?

Kara is an incredible designer with a timely sensibility. Her womenswear designs are unisex as well. She designs nuanced streetwear with subtle details: historical sleeve shapes, earth-dyed textiles, cottons that feel like silk, one-of-a-kind lucite and pressed flower buttons. Everything is thoughtful, considered & cool, like Kara herself. Don’t let her fresh face fool you – Kara is a industry vet, previously designing for Objects Without Meaning, Band of Outsiders, Brain Dead, & Need Supply. KkCo is her new venture and we couldn’t be more thrilled to collab with her. We photographed the brilliant Bethany Bohay Gold, our creative friend from Philly who recently relocated to LA with her partner, artist and designer Dewey Saunders.

We can’t wait to share all of our fave moments & fun memories of our trip to LA with you. Follow along for the full recap coming very soon on the blog
