Style: made in Italy

Whenever you get a label that reads “made in Italy” you immediately feel an element of understated elegance, refinement and quality.

The clothing is usually a cut (excuse the pun) above the rest.  Mostly you feel an attention to detail,  design and fit. And I gravitate towards a cut that is simple and sensual.

The Flavio Castellani label is a reflection of the “made in Italy” style of sophistication mixed with a fun look for the feminine and modern woman. The brand is the outcome of the combined creative spirit of fashion designer Rita Ricci and the management skills of Flavio Castellani.flavio1

La moda e’ eleganza e raffinatezza.
La moda e’ arte e questa e’ la mia passione.

Fashion is elegance and refinement .
Fashion is art and this is my passion.

An Important Italian History Lesson:

One of my favourite kind of pants to wear once the weather starts to warm up is capris.  Thanks to a designer by the name of Sonja de Lennart who invented *Capri pants in 1948. The pants’ name derives from the Italian isle of Capri, where they rose to popularity in the late 1950s and early ’60s.  Grace Kelly was among the first movie stars to wear capris on the island. There have been many more since. Audrey Hepburn immediately comes to mind. To me they are the perfect pant –  comfy casual with flats and a Tee but can be dressed up with heels and a nice shirt.

How about you?  Do you believe the “made in Italy” label is more special?
