KRELWear, the line of Miami-based designer Karelle Levy, came to Panama City last Friday night for an event at Tantalo Hotel. Levy has a background in performance art and that flair for the dramatic came through at this wild and colorful affair, presented by Miss Moss, to promote her new DiscGlo collection. KREL specializes in knitwear, not an obvious material choice for Miami or Panama, though after seeing the neon hotpants we’ve completely changed our minds. Come back again, KREL?

That’s awesome. Dorians is seriously our favorite place in Panama. Where else can you find a wide selection of mom jeans for under two dollars?
Where do you like to hang out around the city? I really like to come to Casco Viejo. You always get what you want to see. La Casona, Villa Agustina. The energy of the people. “I really don’t care about the world. I just wanna stay here and I wanna know people.” That’s the attitude of those places
