IlGrandeFavorito1

I’m going through a style crisis right now. I don’t know if it’s because I started working from home, if I spend too much time with ElĂ©onore Klein or if I’m just finally catching up with trends, but I’m starting to leave my favorite retro silhouette behind for more comfortable outfits.

zephyr-skirt4

The project I am showing today is so basic that I wasn’t sure it deserved a blog post by itself. It’s a simple ZĂ©phyr skirt, made out of a coral scuba. You know, scuba, this technical fabric that creates voluminous clothing that could almost stand up by itself, like the skirts and dresses made by Sandra, ElĂ©onore, or Jolies Bobines? But wait, my skirt drapes very differently from these, the fabric is much more fluid… What’s the deal with that? Well it turns out that even though the words seem to be used interchangeably pretty much everywhere, scuba and neoprene are actually two very different fabrics!
