BRAZILIAN FASHION HOUSE TO BE LAUNCHED IN ANTIGUAWednesday 7th December 2011
Fashionistas in Antigua and Barbuda will have an opportunity to wear one of the most vibrant and funky collections from Brazilian fashion house ‘TOTEM’, when it is launched this month at Zeitgeist, Redcliffe Quay.
TOTEM captures the spirit and sexiness of Brazil and has been featured in magazines from the USA and Europe. Zeitgeist owner, Liz Fannis explains why she is bringing this label to Antigua: “At Zeitgeist we are always looking for designs that will expand our client base and at the same time compliment our main line from Italy. What I love about TOTEM is that it is a brand that will look good on women of any age as the pieces are mainly in natural fabrics from Indian voile, cotton and jersey and are right on trend – plenty of prints, both retro and bold colours.”
Fannis adds that despite the present economic climate, this new line is also affordable: “The women and men who come into our store want to look different and yet, buy items that are classy, timeless and well made. This new line will appeal to women who want have minimal time to get ready and yet, still want to look chic.”
TOTEM is the brainchild of Fred D’Orey as he wanted to celebrate the laid back Brazilian lifestyle whilst t the same time allow his clients to have clothes they can wear from the beach to the office. The line was launched in 1995 and has now spread to 200 stores mainly in Brazil, as well being available in the UK and USA. It features mainly dresses and easy pieces, which for the 2012 season includes jumpsuits and shift dresses. This is the first Antiguan store and Fannis is excited: “At Zeitgeist we are always pushing the envelope, evolving and always on the lookout for designs that women can wear with ease. “
TOTEM will be sold exclusively at Zeitgeist.
