It is with great pleasure that few weeks ago I went to the Profile event in Marylebone very curious to see Rachel Antonio new collection.
I had a quick preview when she had sent me two pictures from the lookbook of two gorgeous red dresses that I shot in two of my editorials but wanted to see the follow on from the AW11 collection.
I've blogged about her a couple of times now and even interviewed her for the Italian fashion magazine DModa.
The S/S12 collection it's insipred by the impressions, colours and fashination of Cuba and Havana, that Rachel visited some time ago.
You can find the inspiration in the tailored suits, the bird prints ( one of her signature features) and the effortless elegance of the silk dress.
Her desings stand out also for the excellent quality: -only 100% silk and cotton - and, I've tested it on the models, the skirts in particular are amazing as they flow and move with the body.
