Introducing LEEAM to our November Pop Up Shop line up

What began in New York City as a highly edited collection of women's woven pieces, L E E A M has evolved into a global contemporary line - with additions of soft Jersey basics to iconic knits designed for everyday wear. An evolution of designs include a focus on timeless aesthetics with highlighting distinctive style.

L E E A M is proud that each piece produced is of the highest quality, and hand made right here in New York City. Locally sourced fabrics are used to promote sustainability in our Garment District. We also use organic textiles whenever possible. It's important to us to be 'Made in NYC' and to preserve the concentration of fashion industry uses in the district.



LEEAM Collection will be at our November 13 to 16 Pop Up Shop located at 7 East Huron in Chicago.

Born in Manila, Philippines, Saplala moved to Chicago with her family at the age of two. Having realized a love for drawing and painting at an early age, she decided to pursue a creative career. She enrolled in her high school's art classes and continued her studies at School of the Art Institute of Chicago. There, she completed a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art, majoring in fashion design.

Saplala moved to New York and started as a freelance designer for larger corporations. After designing for Banana Republic, Gap, Guess and Halston Coats, she decided to pursue her own clothing line in 2006.

Upon launching her eponymous line, Saplala started with separates. She began working with mixed media such as prints and embroidery to create a collection of unique tee shirts and jersey dresses. In 2008, the line grew to include a wider selection of dresses in silk, with a sharper focus on her original prints. She sold her pieces to select boutiques in the U.S. as well as Barney's Co-op.
