Created by young Tahitian Fashion Designer Kohei Leverd, KOHEI is an Island lifestyle brand.
Growing up on the Island of Bora Bora, Kohei's fashion journey began from her early childhood when her grandmother a well-known dressmaker with her own boutique made countless dresses and inspired her to become a fashion designer. More inspiration came from her grandfather who has been photographing French Polynesia since the 1960's.
Today, Kohei's Vision of her brand is to create resort wear collections, blending current trends with antique Tahitian patterns. Her creations not only reflect the casual nature of Island life she has known but also evoke the beauty and gracefulness of Tahitian women, the legendary Vahine.
Most of the pieces of her collections are made from fabrics printed exclusively for her by Bali artisans, with bygone patterns of tropical foliage and flowers in muted colors, giving them a unique vintage look.
