Having spent a few days working away in Brighton – the town where I grew up – talk turned to where I might ultimately set-up home if my husband and I decide we have out-grown our little garden flat barely made for two.
Back home in London, I dropped-off my luggage to travel east to see the new collection by sustainable luxury label VIMPELOVA. The event took place in a Victorian family home where designer, Veronika Vimpelova lives and works. Mentally setting-up home and filling my wardrobe with Veronika’s chic pieces made of organic linen, organic cotton and peace silk, the period setting perfectly complimented traditional pleating and cording techniques.
I haven’t contemplated a crop-top for years, but VIMPELOVA nails them with sophisticated examples like this made of peace silk.
It’s surprising what shopping in a relaxed environment can do for your confidence. I bought this crop-top in traditional hand-block printed, hand-dyed Czech Indigo (Veronika is originally from the Czech Republic).
The new VIMPELOVA collection, which includes pieces for women and men is available to preview and pre-order from your own home now.
If you’re curious to know more, pay a visit to @vimpelova to hear about future events.
