The Overview

Since opening their store in 2001, expat duo Kellianne Karatau and Cassandra McMillan have gained renown for producing exquisite handiwork that's rarely seen in Cambodia. Along the way, they've helped revive the country's silk-weaving traditions, left in tatters after the Khmer Rouge's reign, by employing weavers in traditional silk-manufacturing villages and a team of women who crochet delicate scarves and hand-paint silk cushions in a workshop above the store. New collections are rolled out twice a year, but classics such as fitted coats, A-line skirts and cocktail dresses are always available. Even simple items like clutches and spaghetti strap camisoles feel like little luxuries. Also look out for the casual, cotton-oriented line by each designer: Karatau's Orange River and McMillan's Bliss.
