Spend 5: Spend 5 with Sole Torlonia
Sole Torlonia. The name to know right now. As one third of Blazè Milano, THE must have blazer label that has fashion muses such as Caroline de Maigret snapping up their very own piece, this Italian beauty has been making her mark in the fashion industry for some time now. Having worked in offices for Fendi and Valentino, Sole moved into the coveted offices of ELLE Italia where she formed a strong bond with now business partners Delfina Pinardi and Corrada Rodriguez D’Acri. What ensued was a collaborative dream in the form of ‘made to order’ quality blazers with a distinctly masculine feel. TWAINs kind of wardrobe staple. Naturally we just had to know more so we spent 5 with the muse that is Sole..
