NO KA ‘OI, meaning ‘the best’ in Hawaiian, is a design system inspired by the power of nature and created with Italy’s superior design sensibility.
Through founder and Creative Director, Simona Finelli’s interest in wellness, art, beauty and contemporary culture, she founded NO KA ‘OI in 2014. The collections are defined by color block design, an emphasis on construction, eclectic fabrics, and color. NO KA ‘OI presents a new path for bridging the gap between ready-to-wear, activewear and streetwear.
NO KA ‘OI is a ‘Made in Rilievi’ brand. The Rilievi Group was founded in 1991 in Bologna, Italy. In 2014, co-founders of the leading company, Simona Finelli, Michele Galliano, and Stefania Marocchi, in handmade embroidery and tailoring for the haute couture industry, expanded their vision to create the brand NO KA ‘OI.
As Creative Director, Simona introduces a new design system to the activewear industry that combines her passion for high fashion, wellness, and yoga.
