It seems to now be official. Cuba is the hot spot for fashion designers. Cue Karl Lagerfeld who staged Chanel's resort 2017 collection in Havana, Cuba, earlier this month. This was the first time the French fashion house had a runway show in Latin America and marked the first international fashion show since the 1959 communist revolution, according to the BBC.

Previous to this, The Rolling Stones played a free show in Havana.
"Cuba has… so many kinds of music, all of it brilliant," commented Mick Jagger, according to the Rolling Stone. "It was inevitable that we would play here one day."
Now, with this mix of fashion, rock & roll and Cuban culture, it seems the best way to bring this full circle is to see how these worlds are combining. And, the best way to do this is through the fashion aspect and offer ways you can incorporate pieces into your existing wardrobe.
And, once you have your Cuban-inspired outfit, why not throw on some Stones to add a touch of rock & roll.

Americans love people with lots of spirit – individuals who are willing to push boundaries – in the best sense of the word. And, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, has done this with her flair for fashions that really work. This is why we love her.
After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.
There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
