UTERQUE BOUTIQUE: LISBON
Uterqüe in Latin means "one thing and the other" or "both" and was set up in 2008 (Spanish Business Group including Zara - Uterqüe is constantly written about in the glossies as being Zara high end sister) dedicated to accessories and ensuring they have their rightful place in the wardrobe. Since then it has evolved to include Ready To Wear collection in quality materials with the same attention to detail.
Limited-production collections, become must-have items resulting in garments that not only make you stand out from the crowd but also stand the test of time.
With a change of scenery, combining an airport drop off with a little retail therapy and a cheeky trip to Lisbon it was a real delight to find an Uterqüe boutique. Lots of photos later, scanning every rail for cool buys, here are some of my favourites. I have to confess I didn't buy anything as nothing was in my size and I just cant get my head around having to wear AW17 clothes yet.
Here are my favourites from the collection. The labelled ones are the ones in my basket for thinking about, I try and find cheaper alternatives first, deliberate and then you may see me wearing them soon.
