Grace Na

Founder of Los Angeles-based womenswear brand, Pistola

Grace Na founded Pistola, a Los Angeles-based womenswear brand, in 2013. After twenty years of experience in the apparel business, Grace identified a whitespace in the denim market and set out to create  high-quality pieces, made with exceptional craftsmanship and luxury fabrications, but offered at a lower price point than other brands on the market. 

Today, the Pistola brand has evolved into new categories but continues to offer “everyday premium pieces, fit for a busy, modern, and city-dwelling woman who demands her clothing work as hard as she does.”

More from Grace:

2023 is Pistola’s 10th birthday! How has the brand evolved since you launched in 2013?
We started off as a denim only brand and 10 years later, we have a really strong business with our Ready to Wear categories such as jumpsuits and sweaters becoming best-sellers!
I know it can be hard to play favorites, but what Pistola pieces will you be wearing the most this season?
Amira Denim Dress in voight – I love the fit, overall wash and is very easy to dress up and down.
The idea of professional “workwear” really changed with COVID. What’s your take on what dressing professionally means now?
It means looking smart without feeling too stuffy. Great jeans, great belts, and great shoes go a long way in accomplishing a chill yet put together look.
Who are a few emerging women-owned brands you’ve had your eye on this year?
I think what Chelsea is doing in the art space with Tappan Collective is so cool! Also really loving all the great quality products coming through from beauty brand Necessaire - founder Randi Christiansen.
