Son Trava gets closer

DSC_5922.jpg

Despite the convenience of online shopping, nothing beats the sensation of touch, the ability to see the fabrics and cuts with your own eyes. Thus we are very happy to announce that now you can find Son Trava pyjamas in Aeré store – a thoughtful fashionistas’ oasis in Milan. Founded by Azhar Safinova as an online store in 2015, Aeré store has now opened its doors in Milan, on via Lanzone, 7. It is a lovely street in the heart of the city, aside from the tourists beaten tracks.

We are proud to share the store space with other independent labels with the same values of high quality and attention to details. Now it is our A/W 2017 collection that is represented at Aeré store but at the opening the lucky guests had an opportunity to see S/S 2018 where all eyes were on our romantic dresses. More on it soon!

Our pyjamas and dresses are made from silks and cottons of the highest quality.  If you fell in love with a particular pattern on our cotton garment, be 100% sure it is made of the softest jacquard cotton, we prefer it to printed patterns. If it is the feel of silk you want then it is the best quality fabric we give you and our silk prints are all authentic, drawn by hand by Son Trava designer. So come to our Milan ‘point of contact’ and we don’t mind you be all touchy-feely.

We recommend: dreamy Dior exhibition

We are greatly inspired by art as you have probably guessed. We thought why not tell you about art exhibitions we’ve visited or plan to visit so that you don’t miss them. This time we were lucky enough to be in Paris and see the new retrospective dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the House of Christian Dior at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs.

Is there a woman (and, perhaps, a man?) whose imagination won’t be captured by the House of Dior creations? We think not. This exhibition is a perfect chance to see the whole Dior universe. Even if you are not an expert in fashion, you will be smitten with the pure magnificence of the couture dresses and accessories. There are 300 haute couture gowns designed by the founder himself and his successors starting with the one made in 1947, of the famously known “New Look” design. It is said that together with the beautiful gowns and accessories this exhibition is the most wide-ranging display of atelier toiles, fashion photographs, documents, sketches, letters and notes. It is also the biggest fashion exhibition ever staged in Paris.

Each of the designers who followed Dior has their own exhibition space: Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan, Gianfranco Ferré, John Galliano, Raf Simons and the most recent, Maria Grazia Chiuri. We particularly enjoyed that together with the gowns, the exhibition showed designers’ inspirations.

Christian Dior’s surrealistic hats were perhaps inspired by his friend Salvador Dali's sculptures like Retrospective Bust of a Woman featuring an inkwell and a baguette balancing on her head.

John Galliano stand-out creations are exhibited together with African and Ancient Egypt artifacts as sources of inspiration.

We were blown away by the sheer exquisiteness of craftsmanship, lavish embroidery, and delicate silk flowers on the gowns. 

Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve exhibition is open until the 8th of January at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs
