Trends in fashion do not happen only on the runway where a model is seen wearing a designer outfit. Nowadays, every design house are suddenly entering into the lifestyle and hospitality business (even in athletic-wear business) to expand their brand.
You might see a Ralph Lauren dress and a Ralph Lauren bedsheet at TJ Maxx at the same time. Or, you might find Michael Kors shoes but you may find a Michael Kors dining set sold at a department store.
I recently discovered Luisa Beccaria, who owns a fashion line that bears her name. She’s well-known for her ethereal dresses with a romantic feminine touch with them. Her three eldest children, Lucilla, Lucrezia and Ludovico (she has five in all), have opened LùBar, the city’s newest, buzziest Sicilian restaurant, which fills daily with a coterie of artistic, attractive patrons.
Among all designers that have just released their collections for the resort 2019 season, there have been a recurring theme of romanticism in addition to highlighting femininity. The designers behind Luisa Beccaria delivered a very soft feminine collection for women with chic or romantic styles. It seems there are lot of Mediterranean inspirations in some of these stunning designs. As seen in previous collections, the brand’s signature floral patterns were revamped with graphic twist with a vintage feel in various designs.
Since her early youth, Luisa, born in Milan, nourished her imagination hungry of beauty, feeding it with experiences from painting, music, poetry, movies, drama, design. From her first collection, shown when she was just twenty, Luisa grew up cultivating her own beauty model and expressing it throughout her creations. She developed her light and dreamy style by the art galleries, her first boutique, the haute couture of Rome and Paris… But this life dedicated to fashion and beauty met also love and family. Luisa, with her husband Lucio Bonaccorsi, a Sicilian nobleman, and her children Lucilla, Lucrezia, Ludovico, Luna and Luchino, mixes the energy and vitality of Milan with the wild exuberance of Sicily.
