It may not be overly spring like temperatures outside, but you may have noticed the release of spring/summer 18 fashion both in stores and online. A couple of weeks ago I went to the unveiling of Luisa Spagnoli’s SS18 collection at their London Piccadilly store.
Luisa Spagnoli may not be a name that you are familiar with, but she was an Italian woman who set up two businesses in the early 1900s, her own self-named fashion brand and the Perugina chocolate factory both of which became very successful. Today her business is run by her great-granddaughter Nicolette Spagnoli, with Luisa Spagnoli stores in 25 countries around the world and their clothes worn by famous faces such as the Duchess of Cambridge.
There was a good turnout for the guest list only event. It was friendly crowd and I easily got chatting to a few of the guests, which was great as I went to the event on my own. The Processco was flowing and there was a chocolatier making and handing out the Perugina chocolates. Unfortunately for me the chocolates weren’t vegan friendly. So, I enjoyed the Processco while browsing the collection and chatting to other likeminded fashion lovers, what better way to spend a Friday evening?!
There were a few pieces in the Luisa Spagnoli SS18 collection that liked, and I decided to try them on. The collection was a mix of day time chic, smart wear and evening wear. There were lots of bold colours and a mix of textures and patterns and a 10% discount off all purchases on the night. There were lots of friendly staff on hand to help, as well as personnel stylist Laetitia Tomasso to help get you SS18 ready.
If you are looking for quality, classic pieces to inject into your wardrobe that will last for years to come, it is certainly worth checking out and I dare you not to find something to fall in love with.
