New collections available at Experiment Concept Store


Last week I was invited to a preview of the newest collections available at Experiment concept store, a relatively new shopping address in Bucharest, but a very promising one, regarding the unique selection that its buyer make every season.

The products shown in the concept store are mostly available in only one piece or a very small selection, dedicated to the women who has a special fashion style, loving a smart & chic appearance, with special textures, surprising prints and layering.

Inside Experiment concept store you can find well known brands, with an international name, like :Twin Set, Nice Things by Paloma S, Superga, Leon&Harper or Studio Cabal – a Romanian brand that’s a must see, for its artsy prints that complete its pieces.

What are my favorite picks? Twin Set sweaters extremely  cosy, that are perfect for layering with an underwear-like dress or the Superga sneakers,  available in a large range of colors and textures – I would love the wool  fur-lined sneakers, in a perfect match with the cold season.

Of course, lets not forget the printed sweaters with penguins or the silk shirts with wintery prints that would make for a less-then- ordinary Fall/Winter season.

The big arrival of the evening was Roberto Cavalli himself and his special guest, top model Irina Shayk – useless to tell you how beautiful see is!

Their arrival was filled with hundreds of photos, a true human wave generated by the celebrities appearance.

De unde ne luam pantofii?

Una din cele mai frecvente intrebari pe care o aud legata de vestimentatie este : de unde ai cumparat x sau y?
De fiecare data cand povestesc despre un obiect vestimentar nou, sunt intrebata de unde poate fi cumparat. In ceea ce priveste pantofii, acord o atentie sporita fata de o bluza de exemplu sau chiar o rochie.
Calitatea este foarte vizibila la pantofi, cred eu. De aceea, sunt intotdeauna atenta sa fie bine lucrati, cusuti, lipiti, tocul sa fie drept
( in masura in care modelul o permite), pielea sa fie de calitate, etc.
Am trecut si prin etapa in care cumparam cantitativ, nu calitativ. NU merita! Eu una ajungeam mereu sa fiu nemultumita si le dadeam cui apucam, doar sa scap de ele.
Va sfatuiesc sa fiti si voi atente la detalii, pentru ca sigur ele vor face diferenta.
Intr-adevar si pretul face diferenta, insa prioritatea trebuie sa fie calitatea. Am intalnit si pantofi suficient de scumpi care nu reflectau deloc renumele brandului respectiv.
Deci, de unde imi iau eu pantofii?

1. Smiling Shoes – numarul perechilor sunt in continua crestere, modelele sunt foarte sexy,dar si comode in acelasi timp
Perechea de mai jos este un Must have in viitorul apropiat!

2. Musette – in urma cu 2, 3 ani facusem o obsesie pentru acest brand, eram un client fidel. Si acum ma incanta unele modele, insa din pacate calapodul lor este adesea nepotrivit pentru picioarele mele :).
Insa, inca numar cateva perechi bune de pantofi de la ei, iar cizmele nu m-au dezamagit deloc pana acum.

3. Aldo – v-am povestit recent ca am inceput ” relatia” cu Aldo, pe care cu siguranta o voi continua pentru ca au o colectie de vara superba. Iata cateva modele:

4. Nine West - imi plac mult pantofii de la acest brand, exista o diversitate destul de mare de modele si culori ,astfel ca aproape intotdeauna gasesc ceva pe gustul meu. Cum ar fi de exemplu ei:

5. DNV – nu pot spune decat ca nu veti fi dezamagite deloc! Atat calitatea, cat si modelele sunt de exceptie! Wish listul meu numara aproximativ 3 perechi, insa ma inarmez cu rabdare

Am mai incercat variante ca Zara, Victoria’s Secret sau Asos.
Prefer insa placerea de a proba un pantof si de a ma asigura ca este potrivit pentru mine. Intotdeauna am avut o problema cu masura corecta ( eu sunt si intre numere, deci cu atat mai mult este o posibila problema).
Acum este randul meu sa va intreb: voi de unde va luati pantofii?
