When Samia and I visited Image PR, lovely Gwen Klous welcomed us (and Chico) and while we were looking at the brands Image PR represents, we were reminded yet again how great Colmar is. The Italian brand Colmar was born in 1923 in a little town called Monza, close to Milan in Italy.
Colmar started out with ski wear but has since long been into everything from urban streetwear to swimwear. They also recently partnered with Italia Independent for a collection of lovely and super light weight sunglasses. I wear mine all the time. I am absolutely in love with them and have to say I received tons of compliments about them already!
This summer the Colmar Originals collection was inspired by Miami and the coming fall/winter the collection is called “Western Winter”, inspired by the American West (Native Americans but also Seattle Grunge and the farmers in Montana). Whatever inspiration they have, what we see every time is a clear Italian signature of elegance, comfort and high quality. Colmar gives us pieces we cherish and wear for years.
So we recommend you to go see for yourself, online at www.colmaroriginals.it .They have an online store and also a store locator (there’s lots of Premium brand stores all over the Netherlands!).
