When I woke up last Thursday and saw the rain and the gloomy clouds outside, I thought for sure the day was going to be ruined, especially since I couldn’t wear my new pair of heels. These are the true tragedies in life! :))) Finally I settled for another pair and I was on my way.
I did had a moment of panic when I realized that I only had a short window of time between my two jobs to also go to the Musette showroom to see the new S/S 2014 collection!
Not wanting to be late for work, I had to go to the showroom at the exact moment they opened the doors. At first I thought, OMG I can’t believe it, I’m the first one here, what I’m I going to do all alone? As it turns out it was actually really fun to be the first, I had the place all to myself and everyone there was so nice and welcoming! I got to talk with Cristina Batlan who’s the brand creator – she was super nice and took the time to explain to me the inspiration behind the collection – from Roman times to African tribes, you can travel the world one pair of shoes at a time.
She showed me around and was extremely gracious about everything. She was kind enough to take me to the Depot 96 showroom which is in the same building, one floor up! You guys have to go visit because you won’t regret it. Both brands have huge spaces here (Splaiul Unirii, nr. 96), and you can be sure you'll find some amazing things! I also got to meet Laura Luca (super nice as well), so yeah, the visit at Musette made my day!
These shoes!!! LOVE!
Me in the showroom surrounded by shoes and bags!
On top of that, some of the Cristhelen B. shoes made my heart skip a beat! I especially adored the sandals – they had this exotic vibe that really put me in a summer adventure mood. I absolutely loved the wedges with the architectural heel, as well as the brilliantly colored stilettos.
I liked that the materials weren’t always leather, some pieces are a mix of different fabrics and prints that give them an extra bit of cool! The summer pumps were also a hit with me – rich colors and elegant cuts make for a great combo. The color palette is spot on and so fun: from vibrant green to red, yellow, orange, gold, metallic and holographic prints, they all looked incredible! The bags were just how I like them: sharp silhouettes, solid colors or funky prints and the right sizes too – not too big but big enough to hold all my things!
Joia trecuta am avut placerea sa particip la lansarea noii colectii Musette. Din cauza job-ului am fost nevoita sa ajung la eveniment foarte devreme. Atat de devreme, incat am fost prima persoana de acolo, in afara de organizatori. N-am regretat insa pentru ca-i genial sa ai tot showroom-ul la dispozitie. In plus, am avut ocazia sa vorbesc mai mult cu Cristina Batlan, creatoarea bradului, care a fost extrem de draguta si mi-a povestit despre colectie, surse de inspiratie si materialele folosite.
Colectia contine de la sandale gladiator de inspiratie romana pana la pantofi creati cu gandul la triburile africane. Piesele sunt suficient de variate incat sa fie pe gustul unei audiente largi, cu varste si stiluri de viata diferite.
Am fost placut impresionata de paleta cromatica vibranta si materiale: verde intens, rosu, galben, portocaliu, printuri holografice, auriu si argintiu, imprimeuri artistice, piele si impletituri in combinatii exotice si versatile.
Sandalele au fost preferatele mele, dar nu as spune nu nici catorva perechi de stilettos. Colectia include atat piese basic, usor de purtat cu aproape orice: balerini cu funde si barete, pantofi de inspiratie masculina, sandale si pantofi cu toc gros, de inaltime medie, pana la piese spectaculoase: stilettos intens colorati cu decupaje delicate, saboti cu printuri artistice, sandale si platforme cu tocuri arhitecturale si combinatii indraznete de culori si materiale. Gentile au fost o alta surpriza placuta: dimensiuni bine gandite, culori vesele si forme moderne. Tot ce pot spune este ca noua colectie Musette nu dezamageste!
Am ramas cu gandul la multe dintre piesele din colectie – ramane de vazut care sunt cele fara de care nu pot sa traiesc.
Am avut de asemenea ocazia sa merg sa vizitez showroomul Depot 96, care este in aceeasi cladire din Splaiul Unirii nr. 96. Va recomand sa mergeti la ambele magazine de aici, spatiul este generos si exista o mare varietate de produse, deci sansele sa gasiti ceva cu adevarat superb, sunt extrem de mari!
See anything you like? Any Musette fans out there?
