This week, I’m joined by the thoughtful, talented Anna Lynett Moss of CHIYOME. With a background in printmaking and drawing, Anna was always drawn to 3-dimensional design and architectural symmetry. Just after her move from L.A. to NYC, Anna launched CHIYOME, her own line of sleek, minimalistic, fashion-forward, yet eminently practical, bags and wallets. With a commitment to sourcing and producing as locally as possible, each beautifully structured piece is hand-crafted here in NYC, at the CHIYOME studios in the iconic 5Pointz building. On today’s show, Anna will talk about her transition from art into design, the family legacy behind the CHIYOME name, the core values around which she has built CHIYOME’s business model, some of the artists and designers that inform her aesthetic, the ways in which she’s actively working to give back to the New York community around her, and more.
Plus, a playlist dedicated to all the amazing albums that have come out in the month of May - you’ll hear new tracks from Sharon Van Etten, Sylvan Esso, Sofie Winterson, Archie Bronson Outfit, and more. So tune in for some timeless classics today on BreakThru Radio!
