Weltenbuerger is my new favorite store- and the exact answer to all I’ve been craving lately: simplicity, functionality, minimalism. Perhaps it’s all the chaos that’s going on in my life, but I’m making a dedication to converting to the type of clothing I mentioned; to move on from overt, busy, excess. I think I’ll feel more grounded somehow. I’d rather have a few strong pieces made from quality fabrics and local, eco-friendly design that will last me for a long time rather than my mix-and-matched collection of chaos. I’d rather my personality do the talking without my clothes suggesting something strongly. I plan on hanging on to a couple of my favorite wild, costumey numbers but other than that, I’m making this shift which I hope will infiltrate my way of life in other areas. I care less about being viewed as wild and I think I’ve held on to a lot of nostalgic fulfillment in terms of the way I dress.
Weltenbuerger carries various designers that support this style of wear, but I am posting the line“W/// by Weltenbuerger”, created by the store’s wonderful and intelligent owner I had the pleasure of conversing with today. He incorporates unusual fabrics like bemberg and ribbed tencel as well as linen with metallic thread, fine fabrics and juxtaposed materials in these designs. To be perfectly honest, I kind of wish I could accumulate an entire wardrobe from this shop. In time, perhaps.
If you don’t live in the LA area, you can order Weltenbuerger online! And I highly suggest supporting this incredible designer and curator.
