Back to ’70s with Suede.

The look of today is a “back to graduation day” inspiration. This dress was designed by me for the graduation ceremony  and it’s one of my favorite creations. The dress is in suede pattern, embroidered with cherry blossom flowers, all handmaided and with a long zipp that it’s another detail that I appreciate in this dress. The suede is very much a trend left from 2015, where the 1970s was the era of choice and the designs were retro and blasts from the pasts.One of the most practical and wearable fall/ winter 2016-2017 fashion trends, suede has that special shine to it that only suede can have, the softness of the pieces all the more reason to invest in this winter-perfect material.


Yes it’s still an army green nuance but maybe is a coincidence that all my last purchases are going in this kind of color, or I’m starting to be obsessed with it. Anyway green, the army one, will never ever ever go out of style.

The dress in a classy one, with a close cut and a regular form. Let’s talk about the embroidered cherry blossom flowers. The combination of the suede pattern with those kind of flowers brings a sensation of femininity, and spring sensation on those cold days.



The coat is an element that comple the look even it’s in a bathrobe form, that is a practical one to wear under with whatever you want.



Leather bag, leather belt and broun sunglasses. Skinny leather belts always read classic, minimalistic and feminine.



P.s. Congratulations to me 😍🎉
