I was introduced to Les Glorieuses by Karen, I know when she recommends someone to drop what I am doing and head their fast, as this is a girl in the know!
I had this tingle of excitement when I met Sonia Bronstein the designer, she is the epitome of french perfection, she is truly beautiful and her sense of style is sublime.
Sonia makes timeless handmade pieces that fit to perfection. These are the kind of clothes you can pack and you know you will never be over or under dressed and you can guarantee that you will be asked where is that from!
I popped into her Belsize Park Studio with super stylist Deborah Sheridan Taylor and we couldn’t wait to share the pictures with you all.
What is very special about this collection of tops, skirts and jackets is that they are all mix and match and they are not trend driven so they are investment pieces ( at prices no more expensive than Whistles) that you can use year after year.
Starting with the tops, the focus is on great shapes in beautiful materials. You can throw these on to go to lunch but they will carry you through to evening and they are best used to dress up jeans or joggers.
I love this one shoulder top and you can order a matching skirt and in the Summer Sonia will add a dress version as well as other coloured denim. I have placed an order for the dress version.
I bought this top and have worn it so many times, I normally wear it with distressed denim or with my cashmere joggers. In the Summer I can wear it to dress up denim shorts. It is a work of art .
Both Deborah and I fell in love with this top, this is chic and special enough to wear to any event.Image it paired with white trousers!! There is a belt too to cinch the top in.
Sonia is so talented and where fashion tends to be so disposable this is the antithesis, as these are tops you will have for ever.
Presently you have to contact Sonia directly she has a showroom in London, you can call or text her on +447776136120 to make an appointment. All the pieces are made to measure so fit perfectly . Prices are around the level of the exclusive ranges at Whistles.
Next week I will be sharing with you the rest of the collection.
We have selected the pieces below which you could use to style these spectacular pieces.
