이번에는 퍼스트룩의 온라인 에디터로서
인터뷰 기사를 진행했는데요
한글 번역본은 original 포스팅인
Please tell us how the brand began. How it all started, background.
We are 2 Spanish sisters. We were living in London when we started our brand.
We have always loved fashion. We loved going to Portobello market
in London every Saturday, and we thought it could be fun to have a stall there
to sell some leather belts designs. So we started selling
our designs at Portobello market. Few exclusive shops of the
area were interested in selling our belts in their shops, and that is how
everything started. This was an opportunity for us to do
what we really like.
As women, you'll relate to your customers more.
What image do you have in mind for those who wear Spanish and Sisters?
(maybe target of age?)
We don't think of a range of age or type of women when we create products.
We are just focused on creating a beautiful pieces, that will give a touch of
personality to your outfit.
How do you choose the pieces of materials for your line?
There are amazing statement pieces and I thought
they would look appropriate for so many occasions.
We are in love with the handmade products and there are fantastic artisans
around the world. They really know how to work metal, leather, crochet...etc.
We work really close with them, as we need to create our
pieces together. It is hard sometimes, but we think
this is the only way to get the statement pieces.
For first time wearer/starter, what would you recommend them to
look for in jewelry shopping?
I would recommend to choose timeless pieces and don't be afraid of
choosing strong or bright colors. I love stones and we play a lot with them
in our designs. The possibilities of statement pieces for transforming
basic outfits is huge.
Where can we find to shop your pieces?
We do sell in stores around England, Spain, France...
But we get many buyers from all over the world through
our online shop.
Can you give advice for dressing this spring/summer 2012?
I think summer is a good time to dress colorful,
to wear nice girly dresses, and swap black for white.
