Bella Dahl talks spring '18 and new denim fabrications

Since its launch in 2010, Bella Dahl has become well known for its seriously soft apparel, with goods made right in Los Angeles.

The brand’s laid-back, flirty California flair, reflected in its fashionable collections of jumpers, tops, dresses, lounge wear and jeans, has garnered it a cult following among female consumers who like their style with a side of comfort.

BD 2Bella Dahl’s denim line is crafted with TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers using a unique fabrication and wash process that yield an ultrasoft hand and smooth finish. The brand’s responsibility in protecting the planet is evidence in its use of biodegradable fabric and a nontoxic solvent, which is recycled during production, to produce its jeans.

Carved in Blue caught up with Bella Dahl director of marketing Jennifer Vathanadireg, to talk more about the inspiration behind the brand’s sporty spring ’18 collection, its curated Essentials line and how the use of TENCEL™ Lyocell has enhanced its denim.
