Label Loving: Californian Brand Raquel Allegra


I love discovering new fashion labels to adore, the latest on my wish list is Californian label Raquel Allegra, there is just something about her relaxed, pared-down, slightly distressed pieces that I currently need in my life.

Introduced to the label at Rainbowwave’s Resort 14 luncheon a few weeks back, where I also fell in love with Australian jewellery designer Lucy Folk, I was just blown away by the Californian label’s slouchy silhouettes.

It isn’t just me it seems that loves the label known for its shredding technique, everyone from Heidi Klum to the Sandra Bullock, the Olsen twins, and Hillary Duff have been spotted wearing pieces from Raquel Allegra’s collections. It is her ability to mix great off-duty pieces with gorgeous tailoring and a subtle colour palette that has made her a cult favourite.

For Resort 2014,  that I saw up close, I wanted generally all of it, from the playful paint-splashed t-shirts and jackets, to the loose and gorgeously faded leopard print two-piece tailored suit – that oversized blazer is just a beauty, and the striped floral suit is just one of the many statement looks from an amazing collection.

I could see myself wearing pieces from the collection, like I would love to pair the stripy blazer with a white tee and boyfriend jeans for fashion week, or wear the leopard printed linen pants with a chunky cropped jumper, and I think I would wear her shredded tees all-day, everyday they just look so comfie. All I could think about when I was checking out the collection was who wouldn’t want to add a touch of California cool to their wardrobe!!!

I am in love, are you a fan of Raquel Allegra?
