Shop Le Happy was created from my love of design and street-wear. I have always wanted to take my inspiration to another level and create pieces that would essentially embody my entire style; a very eclectic combination inspired by different eras and music genres.
The new collection features five different styles. While creating the pieces, I incorporated our photography from past experiences and inspirational statements that resonate with my vision and which I identify with at the moment.
Each tee was made with a DIY purpose in mind. The design of the silhouette was specially crafted to allow customizations to each own preferences and to be suitable for all-year wear.
Each and every piece was hand made in Peru. We worked directly with a family owned workshop in my hometown, Lima, the city where I was born and raised. One of my main goals was to create jobs and opportunity, and give back to my community respecting the highest ethical labor standards. The workshop where all the pieces were crafted has the degree of workmanship for design and quality and guarantee the highest quality.
We used three of the best cotton varieties in order to ensure our pieces are valued for their quality and durability. Pima cotton, combed cotton and french terry.
Combed cotton: A refined version of cotton made by treating the cotton fibers before they are spun into yarn. It is both an extremely soft and strong material, which makes it ideal for clothing, especially garments worn against the skin.
Pima Cotton: Pima is a type of cotton grown primarily in Peru and it is considered to be one of the superior blends of cotton and is extremely durable and absorbent.
French Terry: Our hoodies are made of the highest quality of French Terry fabric. With 97% cotton and 3% lycra this fabric feels soft to the touch and has the perfect amount of stretch for a comfortable wear.
