Ever since ‘she who will not be named’ informed me that she had my exact same sunnies in the exact same color, I’ve been on the hunt for a new pair. An encounter like that seems to indicate a need to part with my ole Derek Lams (even just for a little while). For some reason, I’ve been getting into wooden sunnies. Between the different wood types/finishes and hand carving processes, each set is completely unique, a quality I’m definitely after.
Recently, I had the pleasure of chatting with Letizia Negri, the creator of BINGLABART. The sculptural, fantastical pieces speak to the nature of more than just the fashion forward.
While traveling to Ladakh, India, Letizia was incredibly inspired by the people there. Living in what she labeled as cave homes, these mountain dwellers were curious about Letizia’s pieces and eager to don them for her. “What struck me most was the effortless class these poor people have . . . we are so used to conceiving fashion in a glamorous, chic and often feigned way and I wanted something very different for my line, something completely breaking with fashion system.” To Letizia, using Ladakh natives as models represents “class will out,” and these photos will always be an inspiration not just to her, but everyone.
