I was first introduced to Californian Designer Raquel Allegra over a year ago by a wonderful friend of mine who was wearing one of her deconstructed T-Shirts. It was love at first sight :)
Her pieces, made famous by her signature shredding technique, have a cult following. Each individual piece is hand-deconstructed, made from the softest jersey (they feel amazing on your skin). Raquel Allegra creations will introduce a new kind of ‘basics’ to your wardrobe. They are so special, delicate yet strong – whenever I wear a piece from her I get many people asking me about them. They are just a bit different (in the best possible way) to your usual Jersey T-Shirt brand.
Don’t let yourself be put off by the slight hippiness of her creations – it is all about how you combine them! You can easily dress them up with a leather mini skirt or skinny jeans and heels, or go for an all slouchy look, sure to look amazing and have people notice.
