Revelrie




Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the Revelrié showroom to preview their fall 2012 sweater collection. Nestled in the Fashion District of Downtown LA, the showroom was a sweater wonderland containing pieces that would fit all trends and lifestyles.
The designer, Sonya Trejo, was so amazing and inspiring as she told me about the inspiration behind her line, the fabrics, and the overall feel she was going for in designing the line. A self-described dreamer, Sonya had a story behind each and every sweater and was so excited about each and every piece, that it was impossible for me not to be excited too!

The sweaters themselves range from prim and proper, with a 60’s mod flare to very slouchy with a boho vibe.  Even though the range isn’t huge, each piece serves its own purpose and definitely has its own personality. These are definitely sweaters that you can dress up or down, which is amazing for those of us with a busy lifestyle, who want to look great but don’t have lots of time.  Made of fine Italian yarns, angora, and alpaca from Peru, the sweaters are just as soft and comfy as they are stylish. Sonya was super enthusiastic about the materials and it was so great to hear her explain the aesthetics of each material she uses and why she likes them. Her knowledge on yarns is mind-blowing and she’s definitely an alpaca expert!

The colors used in the line are very neutral hues, with pops of primary colors here and there in some of the pieces. While the colors are very trendy for fall, I think they would work in any time, in any season. These definitely aren’t sweaters that you just wear for one season, which Sonya said, was her intention. She designed these pieces to be more like “heirloom” pieces that can transcend seasons and time, and just be a stylish choice for any woman, no matter what season it is, or what’s “in.” Also, lots of the pieces are made locally using sustainable materials, which is great for those fashionistas that are eco-conscious (shouldn’t we all be??).
