This year you can find them everywhere – from hippie to more elegant styles – I love them in all color combinations. The poncho is the perfect accessory to enliven your street style and keep your heart warm.
On the picture you can see my favorite one, a piece I bought during my trip to Jujuy, the northeastern most province of Argentina. This poncho was handmade by Red Puna, a trade community specializing in handicrafts. Even the yarn was produced from their own llamas and sheep.
Buying products from Red Puna supports local agrarian reforms and pure food production.
I can order products for you and you can also have a look at the Red Puna website. http://redpuna.jimdo.com/productos-de-la-vida-indigena-campesina/catalogo-artesanias/
Because of my Italian roots I grew up in an atmosphere where lifestyle and fashion were key elements for every occasion.
For me it was always fascinating to see the effect appearance had on others and many times I observed that first impressions are of the utmost importance.
After 14 years of working in the insurance industry, I decided to dedicate more time to my passion and earned a diploma from the Styling Academy in Zurich.
Amongst other things I am currently creating my own fashion collection consisting of unique skirts and dresses.
Our first encounter was at a birthday party and we soon noticed we shared the same passion for design, fashion and style. After a drawing up a few sketches, we knew the path to realize our vision and accomplish our dreams would become a joint venture.
Michèle Weber, Designer und Couture Tailor: As a professional with many years of experience, my line of work consists of exclusive projects for a renowned fashion house in Zurich.
Luana Grossi, Designer und Stylist: I have done work for famous fashion houses in Zurich and successfully convinced many women to dress for success by selecting, matching and arranging clothes that fit their individual styles.
Our goal is to create a striking, elegant, straightforward and fresh line ideal for every woman. LUMIC is a statement for success, comfort, freedom and mastery of your daily tasks. At events or during more leisurely activities, be prepared for positive looks and compliments.
A joint project needs a solid connection and that is how our Swiss fashion label LUMIC was created. We have chosen the initials of our first names to form our logo. LUMIC values individuality and our limited collections are only made from handpicked and classy fabrics.
Our label is assessed at each step for quality, sustainability and social responsibility – from the initial production at a family-owned tailor shop near Milano in Italy until it makes its way to exclusive shops and fashion houses in Switzerland.The Founders
