It’s coming to that time of the year when you want to wear your most eye-catching outfits, but the weather demands some kind of cover up. But what can you wear that will enhance your outfit,rather than merely covering it up?
Step forward designer Giovanna Velasquez, and her adorable collection Magenta 8. Hailing from Peru, from a long line of strong women passionate about clothing, Giovanna has created the most exquisite collection of luxurious capes, boleros and jackets that add a feel of pure 1950s elegance to any outfit. These are the sort of items that just scream glamour, and are gaining a whole host of celebrity fans, including the super – chic Victoria Beckham. Think CZ Guest, Babe Paley, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Jacqueline Kennedy, all of these iconic beauties would have worn Magenta 8 designa with pride.
What I really love is that every single garment from Magenta 8 is handcrafted using the finest Alpaca wool, chosen for its softness, exceptional warmth and natural benefits. This means that each item is oh-so-soft, as well as wonderfully warm.
I personally think this is the perfect collection for those who love the glamour and romance of clothing. The Magenta 8 story says ‘…Wrapping up in a Magenta 8 design is to know true femininity, warmth, luxury and elegance – all at once.’ I couldn’t agree more.
