House of Hiatus Offers Genderless Garments That Go Beyond the Comfort of Your Home
Sael Bartolucci & Jenna Jamesm, Co-Founders
Los Angeles, CA
Jenna and I are two friends living in east LA. I grew up in Italy and came to the US in the early 2000's. Jenna is a Southern Cali native. We LOVE traveling to new places and returning to good old ones; when on the road, we try to find the best local food, antiques and music!
House of Hiatus was born out of the yearning to bring back the spirit of a vacation home with us. We cannot get enough of leisure wear and the good vibes that come along with being somewhere exotic and relaxing, so we created a unisex life style line that caters to this kind of philosophy.
We were together at a Father John Misty show and a guy walked in wearing a caftan over sneakers looking rather chill, you know that LA style. We immediately thought we could translate this sort of effortless look into a sensibility people could relate to. Why not think of robes and caftans as everyday wear, a genderless garment that goes beyond the comfort of your home, something chic and relaxed that can be worn universally.
We make robes that function as leisure uniforms: more than just something you wear out of the shower or to the pool. When you throw on House of Hiatus hopefully your attitude will be transformed, softened, because we are not only offering you something freeing to wear, but also the mentality that comes along with that spontaneity.
The Hood robe is our favorite House of Hiatus staple, with deep pockets and a classic hood to pull over when you are ready to truly let go and relax!
