The white shirt is the same as elegance, exclusivity and classy. If you look up the meaning of the SHIRT is " A shirt is a cloth garment for the upper body. Originally an undergarment worn exclusively by men". The white shirt is an icon and a "must" part in a suit of men. Also the tailoring industry was so important and a essential for high-class men for ages. 

However the culture changes everyday and now you could find the shirt like this (see the picture below, the model is wearing a shirt by Guiëm)

Along the history there were some women that started to change the meaning of wearing a shirt as a symbol of independence and to rise the power of women in the real life. One of them was Coco Chanel in 1920 that made popular this cloth making it sexy and attractive. After this years ladies started to borrow the shirts of their fathers to combine with jeans but only as casual and informal outfits.

In 1952 showed up the "Bettina" by Givenchy with a classy touch and after the "shirt" disappeared for some years until 70´s when it became popular again thank to the films and some designers of that years.

Does not matter what social class you come from or if you want to look casual or elegant... the white shirt is always in and is an icon inside fashion. Carolina Herrera has made a line called "The white shirt" as a tribute to this icon in the history of women that means freedom.

Have you hear about anything about "oversize" trend? Is the perfect time to use the "shirt" of your boyfriend and combine what you like the most. We love that trend and encourage all the women to use men clothing in a sexy way.

Hey all you fashion lovers! Hope everyone is keeping up with this New York heat! A little brutal? Yes. But DO NOT WORRY...because I have just the perfect fashion fix for that: Costalmel’s graphic t-shirts. Nothing screams summer fashion like breezy t-shirts with prints that embody the summer feel. These urban street style pieces are a staple for a summer wardrobe.

Their current collection includes short-sleeve and sleeveless t-shirts for both men and women with prints including my favorite summer fruit, PINEAPPLES (yum), florals, and Mexican skulls. They mix these fun prints with j’adore illustrations that are not only eye catching but also jaw dropping.

 

Made out of 100% cotton, these easy-breezy shirts can uphold the brutal summer heat but can also be transitioned into the fall. There is nothing better to have than versatile pieces that you can style year around to fit the changing seasons. The base color of all of Costalemel’s shirts come in different shades of white (depending on the style), which cannot scream STAPLE PIECE enough. The fact that the actual t-shirt is a shade of white with a colored illustration, makes it that much easier to just pair it with about anything.

REMEMBER: It’s the summer, so have fun playing with colors and mixing different prints within your tops and bottoms. Fashion is supposed to be fearless so go get them!

One of the biggest fashion do’s of the past few seasons has been to mix streetwear with couture. Its been seen all over the catwalks and it is still prevailing. We’ve seen it in collections like Chanel, where dresses are mixed with sneakers and in Kanye West’s Paris debut where he swore by it. It brings the higher and the lower end of fashion into one, which I think is great. I am a huge fan of the trend and think it is super fun. It brings out an urban, effortless edge out of all of us.

Last day in 080 Barcelona Fashion Show we found a pop-up by Costalamel.

b2ap3_thumbnail_la-foto-1.JPG

Costalamel´s philosophy is expanding the ‘make la honey’ manifesto. Honey is an attitude towards life. It is being yourself and fighting for your dreams. It is positivism, zest for life. It is an ode to all those singular people who keep fighting to assert their values and ideals. That’s why we make associations with young designers and local workshops, with brave people who have the deep desire to change things.

b2ap3_thumbnail_la-foto-5.JPG

His founder and designer Ernest (in the pic above during the 080) told us the key to be different "We try to differentiate from established brands by putting love and attention to details in every design we make. We can do it because we have small productions.We produce every single t-shirt manually, paying attention to the smallest thing, repeating it if it just doesn’t fit. We design, manufacture and print all the garments in small workshops from Barcelona. 4 different steps made by 4 different workshops, each step is carried where it is better done."
