Quality is at the heart of our work. Each garment is a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted work of art. The designs begin with fine white silks, dyed and decorated by hand. The fabric is meticulously cut and tailored using Kiss original patterns, then quilted and lined or left weightless and translucent. Mark-making and the way silk accepts it inspire this new collection and, as always, the women who wear Kiss.
Layered with your favorite Kiss piece or that “little black dress,” our scarves and shawls will take your wardrobe to the next level.
Our extended community of artists includes talented jewelers whose work compliments Kiss’ designs. We have included select pieces from them here as well.
Accessories may be purchased directly from the website.

The Studio and the Designer
Designer Lori Bacigalupi creates an elegant and flattering line of wearable art. Stressing the notion of versatility, the Kiss of the Wolf studio incorporates fine textured fabrics, intricate color palettes, and varied patterns into collections of travel-light, inner-to-outerwear clothing. Every article of Kiss’ clothing is completely hand finished and carefully hand dyed.
Throughout my career, I have explored many techniques in fabric design and continue to be inspired by both ancient and modern techniques. I strive to create unique, well-crafted, hand-finished garments that are essential, sustainable and fundamental to one’s wardrobe. ~Lori Bacigalupi
