Anna Tomàs, who I met in Milan on a trip with IED, has joined Mónica in Lady in Satin, handmade tailoring label with a very romantic style. Coloured threads, patterns, laces, blond laces and organza are their identity signs. They buy the materials at the haberdasheries that still survive on their neighborhood in Barcelona, markets, and little notion stores in London, Paris, New York, and Etsy.
Every piece is named after literary characters from stories by Lewis Carroll, Charlotte Brontë and Jane Austen, and they publish on their FB page beautiful and inspiring images with quotes from books and famous people, absolutely awesome. Carla is responsible for the visual image of the label. Anna is the one that composed the identity of the label, and Mónica is the true designer and sews all the clothes by herself. Her creations could be worn by the Crawley sisters in Downton Abbey, Keira Knightley in A Dangerous Method (I have to make a post about this movie costume design in Style me if you can, it is so good), Jane Eyre, Elizabeth Bennet, or people from XVIII century paintings.
Lady in Satin, a great discovery for a Sunday morning, don’t you think? The perfect day to watch Pride and Prejudice (the movie by Joe Wright) or read Mansfield Park.
