How Cestalv.it is Born

 

It all began in a playful way, when Vittoria was pregnant with Theophile and invented soft stretch bell-bottom pants for herself that would adapt to the lines of the body, even in the case of a woman with child. She made her first pattern for V Pants, hunted up some fabric and called in a good dressmaker: the result was the first model in elasticized black lace. An icon of cestalv.it. The strong point of this first model is that one size fits all (from 38 to 44 – UK 6 to 12, US 2 to 8), along with the fusion of color prints and elasticized cottons that adapt to any body, slimming its forms. Above all, V Pants are an instant outfit, creating a complete look that makes women elegant and sophisticated, matched with a simple white t-shirt or an oversized sweater, for a long leggy image that follows the forms of the body.

The Dreams Becomes True

 

After the first pattern Vittoria’s creative impulse exploded, generating two more pants models (one bell-bottom with button, one flared), two long dresses for running on the beach, and a jogging suit, creating her first collection that also includes tunics, long “mermaid” skirts and overalls. All designed for women who travel, living out of a suitcase, in total gypsy style: every cestlav.it garment can be packed in a bag and worn without wrinkles. For free, migrant spirits who want to be instantly elegant and sophisticated, in any part of the world.

A Gipsy Soul

 

Vittoria, in fact, is a cosmopolitan woman who lives in Milan and Paris, the home of her partner, singer-songwriter Mathieu Des Longchamp. They met during a hippified summer in Cadaques: his guitar melodies have been the soundtrack of the birth of cestlav.it. From Milan or Paris Vittoria sets off to roam the world in search of fabrics, from California to Japan, Germany to the Mexican jungle, purchasing only small quantities of cloth to make every garment unique. Every pair of paints, every jogging suit, every dress become limited editions that will make you want to race to California for the next Coachella festival, and dance till dawn.

A 2.0 Brand with a Beautiful Atelier

 

Cestlav.it is a brand 2.0, because it was born on Facebook and Instagram, without having to rely on the four walls of a boutique, always with a firm belief in the philosophy of affordable prices and high quality. Today cestlav.it items can be purchased online or directly in the atelier at Via Lucano 3 in Milan, where together with Vittoria you can choose your own fabrics and see the whole collection, trying on dresses and pants while sipping a nice cup of tea amidst the plants in the garden. You’ll depart with a smile.
