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.

Switzerland is a peaceful nation that hasn’t been involved in a war for 500 years. But that’s not its only claim to fame: it is also home to Institut Villa Pierrefeu (I.V. P.), a finishing school for females located in a village high above picturesque Montreux on Lake Geneva. In the October 8, 2018 issue of The New Yorker I read a fascinating article, written by Alice Gregory, who came up with a lot of eye-opening info about this rara avis institution.
Last month I wrote about Crazy Rich Asians, the first book in an over-the-top trilogy written by Kevin Kwan. Full disclosure: I didn’t even KNOW there were three books until an Asian acquaintance, with a classy Australian accent, told me she was reading Book #3.
With all of the new fashion coming at us, especially with spring collections hitting the stores, it's easy to get caught up in the latest trends or styling fads. Of course I enjoy breaking them down for you, such as in Fashion Week Street Style Trends or The Belt Bag, but for this post, I decided to go to basics. That is, back to basics with Adea.
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.
