From made in America to made in Spain, the newlyopened Faena Bazaar features international designers spinning fashions the whole world loves.
The Lady & The Sailor
It all starts with the essentials. That’s what inspired designer Brittany Correy over a decade ago to launch The Lady & The Sailor based on her philosophy that “good basics are the foundation to creating beautifully uncomplicated style.” Carefully and consciously produced using the highest quality textiles in the United States, Correy’s collections, which she describes as “ feminine with a nod to boy,” offer unfussy staples like scooped tanks, linen tees, cotton tunics and lightweight drawstring dresses. Inspired by her own insatiable taste for travel, culture, and all things timeless, her effortlessly elegant clothes are crafted for a well-lived life. As comfortable as they are versatile, her T-shirts can rise to any occasion from a casual beachside brunch to a night of cocktails, when paired with killer stilettos.
Over in Spain, Mila and Pedro García are carrying on a three-generation family business crafting beautiful luxury footwear made by highly-skilled artisans in Elda, Alicante. Always looking to take their designs one step further, the Garcías continually experiment and merge opposing concepts to “spawn new, hybrid silhouettes.” One of their earliest out-of-the-box pursuits was to decorate flat sandals with Swarovski micropavé crystals which, over time, became a hallmark in the brand’s permanent collection. They also created anatomical
soles for high heels, developed rough-hewn finishes on vegetable tanned leather to establish a style of uncooked glamour, and introduced frayed satin, all of which have become trademarks of the iconic Spanish label.
Picks of the month: Love Binetti
The latest collection from New York based Argentine fashion designer, Diego Binetti, is inspired by a cadre of female muses whose singular style and independent spirit transformed them into celebrated icons.
Binetti’s eponymous label, LOVE Binetti, caters to the free-spirited modern woman with a city-slicker edge. His spring/summer ’19 collection, “Sisters of the Moon,” showcasing tiered flowing dresses, romantic puff and poet sleeves, baby-doll empire cuts, and hand embroidered motifs, pays homage to empowered women in the worlds of music, fashion and art with designs that represent femininity defined by diversity and strength. You’ll find hints of Stevie Nicks’ gypsy-meets-rocker bravura, artisanal embroidery and long cotton dresses inspired by Frida Kahlo and Georgia O’Keeffe, and a trace of retro-European sophistication as a tribute to Italian doyenne Marella Agnelli. Must-have souk-inspired accessories include hand-beaded and tasseled hobos, hand-loomed totes and a circular top-handle bag with multi-colored raffia.
