Pasta, clothing, and pretty lingerie are three things Italians have mastered. Want to make homemade spaghetti? Check Google. But when it comes to the best fashion brands, we did the grunt work for you, scouring the internet and Instagram to find a handful of affordable Italian clothing brands fashion girls love. Last but not least, today, we're rounding up the best Italian bra brands.
In order to hone on the dreamiest Italian lingerie brands, we tapped Michela D'Angelo, an Italy-based influencer, stylist, and fashion consultant. In the past, D'Angelo's modeled for Valentino and Marc Jacobs, though she now dedicates much of her time to consulting in the fashion world and working with brands such as Calvin Klein and Bottega Veneta. (In other words, she's a girl who knows good labels.)
Prepare yourselves: D'Angelo's picks are quite impossible to pass up. From the prettiest lacey bralettes in the game to comfy, affordable options you can always reach for, ahead, the three bra brands one Italian girl swears by (and you will, too).
"I go there to buy all stretch basics in black. They're very comfortable, and the price point is great, but best of all, the brand recently introduced a line in plain, simple silk, which is amazing. I got three co-ords in black, champagne, and white—all classic and very beautiful."
"If you want to treat yourself with something really extra, you definitely have to go for La Perla's pieces. I love the embroidered lace-trimmed silk camisoles and brief set (got one in pink last week), but most of all, the bras in black stretch tulle. There are so many options!"
"I recently discovered this little gem on Instagram. It's a small company that produces all its pieces in 'slow couture' in Italy, paying attention to social values and supporting local craftsmanship. Shop the customizable briefs, which are already a must. Also lovely as a gift for your girlfriends."
