Nothing inspires us to pack our bags and hop a globetrotting plane more than Job & Boss. The brainchild of Brook Lane and Kirby Mckenzie, this Oakland-based label has put the Japanese shibori tie-dyeing techniques back on the Bay Area map, with an irresistible line of handcrafted totes, purses, and scarves.
The latest collection from the gals was inspired by a sourcing trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, capturing the vivid landscape of the ancient city. So, we headed across the Bay Bridge to check out the duo's sewing and dyeing studios, the latter an eclectic live-in menagerie of vintage gems. And, based on how these ladies put together four outfits apiece, we are giddy with excitement over their latest endeavor: an upcoming clothing line. Okay, fasten those seatbelts for major studio and sartorial inspiration ahead!
