Reader Competition: Lazzari
It’s great when you come across a new brand to admire. We recently discovered Italian brand Lazzari and we are smitten. Take a peek inside their Autumn/Winter 2014 look book and you will quickly see why. Their latest collection is adorable to say the least. With a touch of the quirky the inspiration for this collection is breakfast, in their opinion one of the most beautiful and yummy moments of the day. You’ll see silk shirts with croissants on the collar, little blue milk cartons (a throwback to Blur’s 1999 video Coffee and TV) and jumpers covered in eggs . Cute.
Entitled Diana + Diana, the look book draws on the playfulness of the collection. Set in the grounds of a former summer camp with coloured wood cabins and furniture from the sixties this is a fashion story with a difference. Themed around childhood classic The Parent Trap (think Hayley Mills, less Lindsay Lohan) it tells the tale of two girls, both with very different styles arriving at camp, stumbling upon each other, realising they look exactly the same and then duh duh duh! What will happen next? Take a look at the video version of this story here.
Using the 1961 film as a framework, they thought it would be fun to do a double interpretation of the collection. Short-haired Diana plays the part of tomboy Susan and is styled in shorts, wooly jumpers and raincoats. Then we have goldilocks-like Diana aka Sharon who sets up camp in a beautiful holiday chalet. She swans about in dresses, reads a book, talks on the phone and daydreams about parties while decorating an embroidery hoop. Lovely.
Are you swooning yet? We thought you might be. Shall we make it even better? Go on then, we do like to spoil you.
