Turkey has come a very long way in terms of fashion and textile. Cotton is widely grown in Turkey, making the country one of the top producers of clothing and various textiles. The labor in Turkey is also cheap, can be comparable to China, which means, world wide known fashion brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and many more produce their items in Turkey. You can also find the infamous 'Made in Turkey' stamp in more affordable clothing brands such as H&M, Zara, Bershka, Pull & Bear to name a few.
My favorite brand I will talk about here is Twist. It is under the same umbrella of clothing as Ipekyol which also does a more couture line called Machka. Ipekyol produces clothing for ages 30-35+ with the emphasis on clean lines mainly for the modern working women. Twist is the younger line for teens, and young adults (of course also for those 35+s who love to feel young).
A fun fact is also that the main Ipekyol Textiles Building has won the Aga Khan Prize for architecture in the year 2010. Lucky to note here that the clothes are just as beautifully designed and created as the building.
Here I want to include some of my favorite looks from the Spring-Summer 2014 line. Conveniently the line is now on sale with reductions up to 70%. One of the reasons why I am looking forward to going to Turkey! Shopping is always a good therapy when done correctly. If you want to purchase any of the items, the online store is now open! All the prices are written in Turkish, however to translate it to euros use the ratio 1:2 and to pound 1:3, you will find the items are actually of very decent price! I can also guarantee you will be getting good quality products worth your investment.
The bold prints of the looks on the left give out the ambience of a hot, fun summer. Do not be afraid to mix clashing prints so long as they have a base color in common. Also remember, less is more but when done right (like above or with the striped jeans below), more can be more!
Keep those patterned pants, they are here to stay!
I will now leave you with a few of my other favorite looks. I hope you have enjoyed this quick post and will dress to impress the remaining of the summer :)
