Whoever said “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” has not met La Fabbri’s collection of “Friends.” Bags in the La Fabbri brand all have a name, style, and personality. While using this methodology, women choose bags according to their personal style and what they want their bag to portray. For example, various styles of the bags range from the fashion forward “Morgan,” the sporty “Gyn,” the romantic “Giulia,” and more. La Fabbri designs each bag with the various feelings a woman can feel every day. Therefore, she can then choose which bag represents her feelings.
Not only are the bags made with excellent style, but quality materials as well. With every bag, the shape and architecture is studied meticulously. In addition to the craftsmanship of the architecture, the leather used is handmade. For instance, on La Fabbri’s website, the artisans of La Fabbri sew the bags on a wooden form. Specifically, this is a traditional Italian craft, in which, makes every bag unique. That being said, not only are La Fabbri bags considered a “Friend,” but they are re a lifelong friend made of quality materials and genuine leather.

Donna Karan once coined the quote, “I design what I feel is missing from my closet.” A quote the UK-based team at Blake Mill took to heart, whether they knew it or not. A small group of people who walked to the beat of their own drum felt the typical and mundane patterned shirts were not to their caliber. That being said, this sparked the idea for Blake Mill, a shirt design company that pushes limits and creates high-quality shirts for all occasions, with a large emphasis on customer service and ethical production.
As stated on their website, the team at Blake Mill is a group compiled of perfectionists, explaining why the company only designs shirts. If they are going to make something, it will be the best they can possibly make. “Subtle” shirts are designed for men who enjoy the whimsicality of the prints, but are not ready to take the plunge into the contrasting “Bold” line of shirts. The “Bold” shirt line consists of patterns inspired from nature, science, and the world around them, and are daring prints that will stand out in any crowd. Blake Mill has done its best to appeal to both the shy male, and the ostentatious male.
Not only is Blake Mill dedicated to the perfecting of shirts, they are also devoted to the environment, and their customer service skills. Black Mill has made a tremendous effort to make sure their shirts are produced in ethical environments, where workers are treated with respect and take part in worker empowerment programs. Last, but certainly not least, Blake Mill values its customers to the extreme. They refuse to let their customers sit on the phone for long minutes at a time to speak with a representative. The customer service team is attentive and ready to serve and deliver as quickly as they can.
Overall, a small team of people from the United Kingdom is ready to take the world by storm with their vibrant, patterned shirts; embodying British poet, Blake Mill’s sense of individuality. Their attention to ethical fashion is something we will see continue to increase within the fashion industry for years to come.Read On

A confident, independent woman wears our love for arts and our passion for the Italian heritage. She has a strong and versatile personality, which is reflected in her exclusive and contemporary wardrobe: sometimes fancy and joyful, whereas other times more romantic and imaginative.
My continuous search at least for a feeling if creativity freedom. That sigh of relief when I get home from the attacks by figures who do not really know me, the opinions of strangers, who does not believe in me regardless.
I was able to breathe deeply again, after leaving a job that enclosed me in a small space, which tightened every day more, where creativity was controlled and the imagination measured.
Follow your dreams dictating rules, shapes and colours.
I imagined the overcoats, as a protection of the outside world. As If you were wrapped around the blankets in a moment of discomfort and feeling of inadequacy, given unjustly by those around you.
Protect yourself with a design or a clay sculpture, my bosses would inspire reliability in the wearer.
I constantly need others to trust me, which is almost always impossible because of the perennial prejudice against my young age.
Feeling like a child wearing his father’s huge clothes to get taken seriously. So I imagined leaders who would give awareness of their ability and confidence in facing the world, harsh, harsh, that stabs you when you least expect it.
Emotions are projected through the childish tones of the collection, contrasted by the safety and regularity of the “mature” and safe fabrics, typical of classic Tailoring.Read On
