Remember when Adea headed to Cuba? If not, be sure to check out - The Winter Getaway: Cuba and Back from Cuba!

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.

  1. Panama Hat - an accessory you can add to any outfit.

  1. Full Skirt - opt for a brightly colored fabric or print and pair with an Adea Camisole.
  1. Embrace White - whether for your top, such as with an Adea Layering Top, or your pants or your dress, wear it and flaunt it.

And, once you have your Cuban-inspired outfit, why not throw on some Stones to add a touch of rock & roll.

Working Out of One’s Office

September 09, 2020

The pandemic this year has affected all of us in many ways. Two things that stand out in my mind: people definitely need people (to paraphrase the song “People” sung by Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl). The phone, email, computer, TV and all the other digital creations we use DO NOT take the place of human interaction. We all need to see and talk to each other. That said we have also learned that we can work at home very efficiently and handle our normal workload if necessary. Never commute again? I don’t think that will happen, but perhaps we’ll find a happy medium – time will tell.

Andy Really Did It With Soup!

September 02, 2020

I have often found that when a person achieves incredible success – after a long struggle – the back-story is almost as fascinating as the achievement itself. That’s why I was interested in, yet another, Andy Warhol write-up that appeared in the May 2020 issue of the Smithsonian magazine.

BODYWEAR

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.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
