Antik Batik - France


If boho isn't totally out of the question for you, you need to take a look at Gabriella Cortese's label Antik Batik. The attention to detail is beautiful - the little tassles at the straps, the embroidery, the insets of lace. Gabriella is Italian by birth, but lives in Paris. She developed her unique style while traveling Bali and Tibet, and mixes her craft with an influence ranging from Art Nouveau to Russian avant-guarde.
