As I have been wandering around my new home town Paris, I’ve had the chance to get acquainted with some cool brands and designers I wasn’t familiar with before.
One of my new favorites is Armand Ventilo, a Ready-to-Wear high-end French brand started by two brothers Jacques and Armand in 1972. Now the brand has over 50 stores across France and abroad.
When you go into one of their stores, you can’t help but feel a bit lost. Most of the items on their own don’t look like much. But the real magic behind their clothes is what they become when you start putting different pieces together. And the wilder the mix, the better. Their vibrant colors and interesting patterns blend together beautifully, and while looking fresh and new, the clothes have an airy and timeless feeling about them. And what I love most about Ventilo’s designs, is how they illustrate the fact that you don’t have to show that much skin to look feminine and stylish. I tend to think that the more you cover up, the more intriguing you look.
What do you think of the designs of the two brothers? In case you’re left wanting some more inspiration, why not visit their website, www.ventilo.fr.
