Isolda.. A Little bit of Rio in K-town

The moment I stepped inside N boutique in Burj Jassim, I squealed with joy. I was greeted by three mannequins dressed in gorgeous and super feminine pieces covered in fun and playful tropical prints. Everything about the pieces on display screamed ME! I love colorful mismatched prints on feminine silhouettes. I had to know who the designer was. I took a closer look at the clothes tag and it read Isolda.

With a little help from Mr. Google, I came to know that architect and textile designer Alessandra Affonso Ferreira is the creative force behind Brizalian/London-based brand Isolda. She was trained at the Chelsea College of Arts and Design, and I'm not quite sure but I think this is her first collection because I only saw one collection on her website. The pieces in store were a selection of tops, pants, and short and maxi skirts. The only drawback? The sizes of the skirts were tiny! A size large would probably fit size 8 or 10 UK? If you're super skinny, you have nothing to worry about. As for me, trying on tops was a piece of "cake", they were roomy. the skirts however.... ahem... let's just say I need to cut back on that cake! That didn't stop me from shopping, I bought a couple of things from Isolda. Can't wait to wear them with a pair of bold earrings, stacked cuffs, and a pair of colorful sandals, actually, they'd look smashing paired with my Ninas de Papa, no?
