That time of year…

Posted in Fashion, Retail Business by upc boutique on August 16, 2010

It’s almost fall kids so as with every summer it’s time for final markdowns.  Inventory is slim and new product is coming in fast and furious so to celebrate ALL and I mean CELEBRATE, whatever is left from spring and summer is on sale.  Take advantage of the few remaining pieces as there are some serious steals on both the online store and our physical location.  So what better way to start your week than shopping…seriously I can’t think of anything better to do on a monday morning (and you think I’m kidding!).

And if you can’t make it into the store for a limited time we are offering FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING.  Yeah I know we’re crazy.

* 50% off all spring summer 2010 merchandise including: complex geometries, pleasure principle, chronicles of never, beta unit, camo, margarita saplala, iro, fifth avenue shoe repair, vivienne westwood for melissa, house of dagmar, shin and more….

Q & A Time…Disaya.

Posted in Uncategorized by upc boutique on May 10, 2010

One of the best things about my job is meeting new designers.  Watching them grow, learning about their inspirations and ultimately wearing their collections :).  Its amazing to see how they evolve not only as lines but as individuals over time.  The one unfortunate thing that I have found in fashion is that not enough people learn about the creative minds behind the lines.  People for the most part are too busy to read long interviews.  As such, UPC has decided to undertake some short Q & A sessions with designers we feel you will love to get to know just a little bit better…

With that, we would like to introduce Disaya (which is readily available at UPC Boutique and a line we are proud to carry).  All you need to know are two things.  Ready to wear & Jewelry.

Q & A with Disaya:

What are the 5 things you can’t live without?

  1. My Iphone
  2. Sketchbook
  3. Creme de la Mer
  4. My organizer
  5. White wine

What makes an outfit outstanding?

Statement shoes and accessories can greatly enhance the appeal of an outfit. Such as matching a classic dress with Disaya oversized crystal robotic octopus cuff.

What turns you on creatively?

Good exhibitions, such as Studio Ghibli museum and The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

What turns you off?

All the counterfeit products we see around the world

What is your favorite color?


What’s your favorite midnight snack?

Japanese crackers and wine!

What is your guilty pleasure?

Anything chocolate!

Out of all of your collections, what is your favorite piece?

My favorite piece out of the whole collection is the ripped bottoms dress that has a youthfully sensual yet classic look.

What can’t you live without?

My family

What were you doing five minutes before you started filling out these questions?

Reading a bedtime story to my 3 years old daughter.

Who do you call most often each day?

My husband

Thank you Disaya.  Your responses were truly heartfelt and it was nice to find out some of the more intimate details of what goes on in such a creative mind.  Honestly, it just made me smile creating this post.  Between the pictures and answers I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect.
