Because there is nothing better than the feel of silk on naked skin.
According to an old legend, it was a Chinese empress (around 2700 B.C.E), who was the first to discover silk as a weavable fibre. The legend is that she was in her garden when she picked some cocoons from a mulberry tree, and accidentally dropped one into her tea.
Silk is a natural protein fiber produced by a variety of silkworms.
Because of its natural protein structure, silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics. An all-climate fabric, silk is warm and cosy in winter and comfortably cool when temperatures rise. Its natural temperature-regulating properties give silk this paradoxical ability to cool and warm simultaneously. Silk worn as a second layer warms without being bulky. Warming and cooling. Light and sensually soft.
We simply love silk. Silk is the key part in our v-necks collection.
We source our silks from Italy.
Because there is nothing more femininely elegant and sensual. Lace is simply ace.
The first city associated with lace was Venice. By 1600 high quality lace was being made in many centers across Europe including Flanders, Spain, France and England. Lace is a delicate woven fabric.
We use cotton, silk and viscose mixes. Lace is intricate, light, sensually transparent and feminine. The right ingredients for the vol(t)age woman.
We love to embellish our blouses and skirts with lace.
We source our lace from Italy and France.
Because we love the texture of it, the feel of it and how it softly flows and reflects the light with movement.
Velvet has a long history that dates back thousands of years. It was known to symbolize power, wealth and prestige. Velvet was so popular with nobility as it could be dyed in many rich colors. Velvet is a woven fabric and can be made from several different kinds of fibers.
We use silk velvet as well as cotton and viscose mixes. With its conspicuous elegance and lustre, velvet has earned its place as one of the finest and most admirable fabrics. Velvet, the plush fabric of which dreams are made of. We use velvet for our v-necks as well as for our blouses, skirts and jackets.
We source our velvets from Italy and Great-Britain.
Because we love its iconic timeless elegance.
It was Coco Chanel who, decades ago iconized the classic bouclé jacket. Bouclé yarn interestingly contains loops that range in size from large, loose curls to tight circlets (bouclé means curled in French). The larger the loops the more texture the finished fabric will contain. Like other woven textiles, several colors are generally used to create a variety of designs and patterns.
We love unstructured but tailored bouclé jackets, capes and coats with fraying edges for their versatile chic.
We source our bouclé from Great-Britain and France.
