Our dearest jewelry artist/designer Astrid Poletti was invited to join three other Paraguayan designers to showcase at the International Fashion Showcase in London, during London Fashion Week this year. The team surprised many, earning them a second place and a special mention during the award ceremony. "The images below confirm that the pieces are both desirable, commercial and covetable. Astrid Poletti’s intricate, delicate silver work was fierce and feminine at the same time. It was evocative yet adaptable as wearable individual pieces. Ms Button felt it had a glint of the Great Gatsby which added to its majesty." says blogger at TheButtonOnline.wordpress and we completely agree. We can't wait to bring you more from Astrid this year, exclusively ours.
De Siena shoes, from Milan Italy, is working on their amazing New Spring/Summer 2013 collection, which will be available in our store at the end of February. In this picture you can appreciate how they are working on the final details, drawing on the table are spectacular. Can't wait to see the final product!
The company decided to go ahead with its men’s show, despite the tragedy of the missing Vittorio Missoni, whose plane went missing in Venezuela on Jan. 4. Set to a soundtrack of lazy slide-guitar twangs, this 60th anniversary collection evoked the varied landscapes of North America via myriad new takes on the house’s signature fine-loom knits. In organic shades, from stone and Pacific blue and sunset reds, they were integrated into every facet of the collection. There were softly constructed suits in loom-knit wool-cotton blends and gorgeous double-breasted coats in shaded loom-knit camel hair.
The house also flirted with the athletic trend that is so big this season, sending out youthful jersey knit pants and suede bombers with beautiful knitted backs.
Fringed moccasins, jeans and jean jackets underscored the relaxed mood, capped off with a finale of chunky knits in cream — each backed with vibrant jagged patterns evoking rocks, sunsets and seas — proving a poignantly poetic walk-off. The show mood was naturally subdued given the events, and creative director Angela Missoni was backstage but did not take a bow.
