As you already know I adore dressing in an accessible manner and mass-market or premium brands are my Go To stores when I am planning to refresh my wardrobe.
When we say premium market we automatically think of Massimo Dutti or Cos, the international mammuts but lately I am surprised and delighted to discover a few of the Romanian premium brands. You know, around here, people who make clothes are split into two categories – designers and people who call themselves designers. Oh well, I was terribly wrong because we have authentic Romanian premium brands which not only can proudly stand besides brands like Massimo Dutti but which produce items that prove to be evergreen pieces in my wardrobe. One of those brands is Lo Spaccio.
Founded in 1994, they produce limited series (no more than 50 items from the same design) of carefully manufactured pieces. Their design and manufacturing is entirely made in Romania and they use Italian fabrics.
Lo Spaccio designs are classic and evergreen but always with a special twist. And this brings me at the matter at hand. See the dress I am wearing today? Well, it`s striped – with a twist as I was saying, look at how the stripes are placed – and stripes my friends, stripes are one of my greatest loves when it comes to style.
- they make me feel like a timeless elegant bee – they have this dose of chicness and a special French vibe which makes me think at Portofino
- a well fitted striped blouse is an eternal item that I can accessorize with statement necklaces and wear all year long – I have over 27 striped blouses – they are a real catch and outfit saviors
- when I wear a striped something I remember Chanel a bit and feel as rebel, feminist and empowered as this little warrior was
Oh, and I found one reason more
- because wearing a striped dress, while wearing my red lipstick and and a large hat, smoking my cigarette makes me feel like Myself
And speaking about Romanian fashion, here`s an article about fashion during the mid-war period in Romania. I loved reading it.
Tha tha my darlings. See you tomorrow around 12 o`clock to have our tea together.
