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.

Now, let’s take a close look at what is one of the most important features of the Marmont. The short answer is: PRIVACY. The hotel never publicly discusses its famous guests or reveals the names of those currently staying there. In other words: zippered lips are stage center.
When the first Monday in May rolls around, all eyes in the fashion world look to The Met. That is when New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art hosts its fundraising gala for its Costume Institute. The gala's theme coincides with that year's fashion exhibit, which runs for a limited time. This year, the theme is "Notes on 'Camp'". Here's a brief description of that theme, courtesy of The Met.
For this week’s blog, and the next, I read three books about the famous Chateau Marmont Hotel, located at 8221 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. All three books, (that I will list at the end of next week’s blog) were written at different times. This means the information goes from 1929 when the Marmont opened to the present day. Some things may have changed – but not many.
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.
