Once again I was drifting through Etsy and fell for Carolina Benoit’s line inspired by fashion history and romantic influences made for the hopeless romantic.
Carolina Benoit offers quality well constructed women’s wear made from local high quality materials. She loves to offer women designer pieces at affordable prices. I asked Carolina three questions…
What is the inspiration for your spring line?
The inspiration for my spring line was a character, a traveler and an explorer. Someone who isn’t afraid to take her bags and go to new places and meet new people. I tried to express this through the flowy fabrics, and the summery prints.
When I’m traveling, being ready for any occasion or weather is a must. What do you think is the most versatile piece of clothing in your collection?
I think the most versatile piece of clothing in my collection is the dalia print dress (or top if you are not a dress type of girl) This dress is very easy to dress down with a denim jacket and flat sandals. You can dress it up with a nice statement necklace high heels and nice makeup. The best thing about this dress is that you can easily toss it in you bag and it never wrinkles!
Oh, that top is on my wish list for sure! I’ve have a bit of a belt obsession, so I’d wear it with your Lola belt. (Pictured below)
I agree I’m such a belt person too! The Lola belt is actually my favorite piece from my collection!
Your spring line is beautiful. What can we expect from you this fall?
For fall I’m focusing on a queen bee type of character, very feminine silhouettes inspired by Art Deco. Expect a lot of custom made prints and an expansion on our leather goods line. Our aesthetic always being full of colors and special silhouettes, and a lot of bare backs.
