From tight-fitting and voluminous to flared and twirly – at the Bikini Berlin store of Milan label Labo.Art I not only discovered the ultimate everyday basics, but also brand new shapes to flatter my own body type. I took a look around the store on your behalf and tried on a few of their designs.
The first piece I chose to try on was a midi-dress with shirt collar and button placket on the neckline. What makes it so special is that the style of this dress isn’t influenced by individual body shapes: whether it’s being worn or still on the hanger, the firm fabric retains its feminine tulip shape and swirls around the body in a unique, flattering way.
I soon realised that shapes are key here: Labo.Art is constantly experimenting with new silhouettes. And also with colours. Ludovica Diligu, the label’s designer, likes to draw her inspiration from architecture. The result is uniquely tailored pieces that aren’t only available in the basic colours black, brown and white, but also in warm red or vibrant yellow.
After teaming the midi-dress with a long coat, the second outfit I put together was a pair of straight-cut culottes and a cosy woollen jumper with stand-up collar. Both in the colour “Atlantic” – a very dark blue. Thanks to its clear design and high-quality fabrics (Labo.Art uses cotton from the renowned Italian weaving mill Zegna), this look was incredibly modern and minimalistic!
Whether you’re a jersey fan or a minimalist, or you’re looking for clothing that is both comfortable and unique, I recommend you come and browse the huge selection of colours and silhouettes hanging on the rails at Labo.Art. You’re sure to find the perfect outfit!
