I have always had a thing about retro style and, not being sure about how it could possibly look like on me, I secretly wish I could become a retro girl for a day. I think it is because of the strong influence my aunt Lidia had on me and her very unique 50s allure -that she continues having nowadays-. Maybe it is because of all the super cute black and white pictures I have seen from her youth that I have such a crush on this decade.
Ottod’Ame surprises us with a very retro-inspired collection, splashed with plenty of femininity and bon ton style. But the coolest thing is how this brand gets to adapt the old to the new to create a very wearable -yet artistic- collection.
Flared or under-the-knee skirts, slim-fit cardigans, tailored jackets and mini-dresses are just some of the items you will fall in love with. Get ready for unexpected colours like apricot, parfum de pêche or choco mint and unique transversal patterns like colour nouveau, toda gioia, pois block or wallpaper. Whatever your choice is from Ottod’Ame SS13 Collection, you will be able to surprise and charm everyone.
(So loving those shoes! Can anyone recognize them?)
(This look is totally Coachella, by the way!)
(Look at the detail on the wrists! A very contrasting and sporty element for such an elegant tailored coat with a jewelry-like embellishment. Swoon!)
