The girlies who read my posts from time to time, would know that I lead a teensy-weensy chaotic life. Organizing, eating healthy, not staying in pajamas till noon, are deeds for the responsible. Not surprisingly, this reflects on my wardrobe too.
I’ve been an avid collector of every possible garment that has the spectrum of the rainbow, hysterical prints, shiny thingies that make your eyes hurt and of course, the men repellent essentials, like huge pants and grandma-made sweaters with Christmas bells and 3D snowman.
This has left my wardrobe missing the most important part of a fashion blogger’s life- the basics. Basics are necessary, not only for the office or business occasions. They are the main platform from wich you can start arranging the building blocks of your outfit.
This year, I was lucky to be contacted by a freshly emerging Italian brand which sells exactly that. Called “(n-1)” (pronounced “Enne Meno Uno”)
the brand has a unique way of crafting and styling their products, as you can see for yourself at their website
. Every garment is hand crafted in Italy, it’s eco friendly and of top notch quality.
I decided to style 3 outfits with their products and you can see that they tailor their clothes with much love and care.
My absolute favorite are their crepe wool tunics with subtle chic flavor and in so many color varieties you can style them in numerous ways. The flowy pleated skirt makes a great companion for any possible combination out there (grunge, girly, office), so I decided to merge the two. The tunics are sold in recycled cardboard boxes (an initiative the people from “(n-1)”
call “sustainable is beautiful”) which makes them an ideal present.
For the second outfit, I styled Nmenouno’s pants with the tunic, so you can have a glimpse at how versitile the tunics are.
And last, I wanted to create a laid back look with the pants and a chunky knit turtleneck. Even though the pants are with an elegant design, they are as comfortable as sweatpants. Considering my addiction towards comfort, I can see myself wearing them every day.
All and all, seeing a brand that pays so much attention to details and quality is refreshing and I definitely recommend having a glimpse at their website, and especially their amazing workshop!
