BRETON Shines on a Sunny Day

A simple and classic t-shirt never goes out of style, that’s why the Breton t-shirt advances year after year.

With more strength than ever, we will wear it informally or elegantly at any time.

It’s versatile, comfortable and unisex. It will never be out of fashion because it will always be a privileged part of our wardrobe.



Una simple y clásica camiseta nunca pasa de moda, y es por eso que la camiseta Breton avanza año tras año.

Con mas fuerza que nunca la veremos puesta informalmente o elegantemente en cualquier momento.

Es versátil, confortable y unisex. Nunca estará fuera de moda por que siempre será parte privilegiada de nuestro guardarropa.

FLOWER Power

A single flower can change everything.
I always considered flowers to be part of my life, they are powerful and they are our friends. That's why I include them in my wardrobe. They give us that coolness in the summer time, with pastel shades; without forgetting that the black and white shall be always in a privileged place.
This affordable dress I found in H&M when I was in Switzerland, it was love at first sight.
The color, the simple cut and silk, transported me to an afternoon of warm temperatures.
Breaking its simplicity with a white flower brooch, so in that way I would change the easiness for sophistication.

Una simple flor puede cambiarlo todo.
Siempre he considerado las flores ser parte de mi vida, son poderosas y son nuestras amigas. Es por eso que las incluyo en mi guardarropa. Ellas nos darán esa frescura en los tiempos de verano; con tonos pasteles, sin olvidar que el blanco y el negro estarán simpre en un lugar privilegiado.
Este asequible vestido lo encontré en H&M cuando yo estaba en Suiza, fue amor a primera vista. El color, el corte simple y la seda , me llevaron a verlo en una tarde de temperaturas cálidas , quebrando su simplicidad con un broche de flor en blanco, asi de ese modo yo le cambio la sencillez por sofisticación.

for Alexandre McQueen...



Lee Alexander McQueen , born in March 16th 1969 in Hackney, London. He started making dresses for his three sisters at a young age and announced his intention of becoming a fashion designer.McQueen attended Rokeby School, also he stayed as apprenticeship with Savile Row tailors Anderson & Sheppard, before joining Gieves & Hawkes and later the famous theatrical costumiers Angels and Bermans.

In 1994, he applied to London's most prestigious fashion school, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. He received his Master degree in Fashion design and his graduation collection was completely influenced by fashion stylist Isabella Blow (she committed suicide in May 2007). For years she was his best friend and she was responsible for McQueen to change his name, from Lee to Alexander, his middle name.

McQueen was known for his extravagant, avant-garde runway shows. He became "the hooligan of English fashion" and earning the title "l’enfant terrible”. However, he was elected in 1996 to be the designer of Givenchy.
His run through the house of Givenchy was not very successful, caused controversy, as a step in Autumn 1998, which showed on the catwalk car-robots spraying paint over white cotton dresses, and the model Aimee Mullins, double amputee, striding down the show on intricately carved wooden legs. He finished his days at Givenchy in March 2001.

For his enormous creativity, he was the youngest designer to win the title of “British Designer of the Year”.

The collection, McQueen, was released on 11 October 2007. He opened boutiques in New York, London, Los Angeles, Milan, and Las Vegas. Many celebrities have used his clothes in large events such as Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna and lately we have seen his collection worn by Lady Gaga in her videos and live shows.

I must say that Alexander McQueen was and will be one of my most beloved designers. His creativity goes beyond designing apparel, he was an artist and always will be remembered by me in my heart, I'll remember him forever.

Someday I will have one of his designs in my wardrobe, it would be an honor.

This summer we'll see a lot of the color Camel complemented with black, white and gold.

Giving the finishing touches with some vintage treasures that I found and kept for years. It is casual and comfortable for any sunshine day of spring; it can be for lunch or dinner with friends........ the important thing is to feel wonderful!
Enjoy it!
