Sudden invitation from my italian loves Gilda and Ksenia made feel like I’m still in Italy. It was very unusual to schedule a trip to Moscow to see some Italian brands. The only not Italian but Greek was Urania Gazelli, but her suburb clutches made her popular among the whole fashion society, so she simply became global.
I told you many times about my (our) unconditional love for glasses and sunglasses and it seems I found my paradise! I met Spektre brand this winter in Milan, when Sergey was given a pair of sunnies. It immediately became our accessory #1, I’ve been spotted wearing them on Glamour France and on many others magazines.
I really love their PR strategy and brand philosophy – they attract a customer through the image of some popular bloggers, influencers, who showing this “dolce vita” wearing Spektres, but prices for the product are very affordable, that what makes people want and buy the product they saw on Chiara Ferragni or Anna dell Russo during Fashion Week or just on Instagram. Surely, there is no same strategy for every market, but I wish them luck entering Russian one, because the shades are simply awesome!!! And to my pleasure and surprise I got another pair that I wanted so-o much! You’ll see it soon on Instagram and here.
Another brand I’m in love with is Urania’s plexiglass clutches that I’ve already stated. Ah. It’s been a long time since I started following her adventure and I really think this girl is a workaholic! She’s gushing with ideas, love and inspiration! Every clutch is unique as them all are made by hand. For the world today it’s an exception, she is so dedicated to high quality and individuality, so there is no doubt why her clutches are so popular among fashionistas and influencers all over the world! It was very sad that Urania herself wasn’t able to come to Moscow, but see her next time.
At the same time I unexpectedly met an amazing woman and a founder of the same name brand Barbara Bonner! You never know what to expect from life, but it was one of the most inspiring talks for the last time. She told me about her bags and following a dream, oh…so many information! About her bags – I saw them many times on beloved Zanita, Helena Bordon and other influencers, her iconic fringes are more than popular these seasons and they’re all about the brand identity. Here you see few shots of so sweet box clutches that any woman would like to have, they are so tiny and accurate, but made perfectly to fit you iPhone 5:) Because fashion should always consider the progress:)
I’ll make some other post about few more things from this amazing trip as on my blog I mostly prefer sharing few lines not essays. For more info and words you can always come to www.streetcouture.co.uk as it’s totally dedicated to features, brands, shopping and reviews.
Last thing that I wanted to mention is that going to Moscow and same day back wasn’t a right decision at all, feel shattered! But! Firstly, it was worth it! And secondly, tomorrow is JT’s concert that couldn’t be missed! So see you tomorrow, xoxo
