Ioana Petre

RO: Nu suntem noi cei mai mari fani ai Milano-ului si imprejurimilor sale, insa am vazut ca daca renunti la cateva clisee turistice, poti gasi niste locuri tare frumoase in jurul Lacului Como. Si adevarul e ca tot decorul asta plin de case vechi si colorate, terase pe marginea lacului, strazi pietruite, baruri, restaurante, flori de leandru la fiecare coltisor de drum, gelaterii, te cam duce cu gandul la faimosul “dolce far niente“-le italian. Si ca sa o spunem pe aia dreapta, toata Italia, cap-coada, e un cadru perfect pentru poze! N-ai sa vezi poza facuta aici care sa nu tipe de culoare. Italia in sine e o saturatie dusa la maxim in Photoshop, si da, asta ne place de nu se poate! Asa ca am profitat de ocazie sa continuam cu proiectul nostru #designeriromaniprinlume pe strazile din Bellagio si Como, si povestim doua vorbe despre Ioana Petre, o scumpete de designer la inceput de drum, care tocmai ce a lansat o colectie tare simpatica de haine inspirate din natura. Materiale naturale, imprimeuri dragalase, ce par pictate de o mana de copil, si mai presus de toate, inspiratie ce vine de acasa 🙂 Din padurile din Bucegi si aerul proaspat din Sinaia, din gradina plina de bujori, din fluturii din curte si tot ce inseamna copilarie. Imprimeurile sunt pictate manual de Ioana, apoi scanate, prelucrate si imprimate pe bumbac sau matase, materiale 100% naturale. Ce-i drept, n-am ales cea mai reprezentativa piesa din colectie (probabil printre putinele rochii fara imprimeuri), insa sunt o multime de produse frumoase pe profilul Ioanei de Facebook. Si in curand apare si site-ul, si colectia de toamna! 🙂

EN: Actually we’re not the biggest fans of Milan and its surroundings, but we’ve seen that if you give up to some of the touristic cliches, you can find some really nice places around Lake Como. And the truth is that all this setting, full of old colorful houses, terraces on the lake, cobblestone streets, bars and restaurants, leander flowers at every corner of the street and gelato shops, makes you think about the famous Italian “dolce far niente”. And honestly, Italy from tip to toe, is perfect for taking pictures! Each picture taken here is screaming colors. Italy itself is a Photoshop saturation taken to the maximum, and yes, we love it! So we wanted to get the best out of this occasion and continue our #designeriromaniprinlume (Romanian Designers Around The World) project on the streets of Bellagio and Como. And we’ll tell a few words about Ioana Petre, a cute Romanian designer who just started her fashion career and just launched a lovely nature-inspired collection. The fabrics are all natural, the patterns seem to be drawn by child hands, and above all, her inspiration comes from home 🙂 From the woods of the Bucegi mountains, the fresh air from Sinaia, the garden full of peonies, the butterflies from the courtyard and everything that reminds her of childhood. All the prints are hand painted by Ioana, then scanned, edited and printed on cotton or silk, 100% natural fabrics. It is true that we haven’t chosen the most representative piece of clothing from her collecton (probably the only one without any pattern), but there are lots of other gorgeous products on Ioana’s Facebook profile. And soon there will be a website and also a fall collection! 🙂
