Raquel Allegra

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.

    Just come across your blog for the first time, and I’m really glad I have! Really like the look of this designer, I used to work for All Saints and the designs remind me of a lot of their collections with the similarity in their distressed look, the first dress pictured is just gorgeous!
