Cruz Bueno makes us wonder: what if Couture was the new Pret-a-Porter?

If anything the lockdown has taught us is that there is beauty and enjoyment to slow down and it also reminded us to (re)appreciate the little things.

No need to rush around anymore or run after the latest trend. Translated into fashion it is all about finding one’s own identity and personal style as these will never go out of fashion and will never fade. And the answer to this new era might just be bespoke and couture pieces.

Couture and bespoke pieces might seem reserved to high society and formal events and not suited for every day outfits but that’s not the case.

As most of their commissions are for these functions, the campaigns are focusing on a formal styling but the pieces could also be worn in a more casual manner. Look at the Cruz Bueno collection for instance, this skirt tweed suit is divine and would make anyone look powerful yet sexy, ideal for an board meeting, an event at Annabel’s or when worn unmatched each piece of the suit can be styled for day to day outfits.

Think for example of pairing this gorgeous Cruz Bueno jacket with a pair of Agolde jeans, a white tee and some over the knee Paris Texas Boots or styling this stunning Cruz Bueno skirt with McQueen trainers an equipment white cashmere jumper tucked in with rolled up sleeves.

Cruz Bueno is the brain child of Couturier Lucas Cruz Bueno who has been creating bespoke and ready to wear collections from his London atelier since 2015. His muse is a strong and feminine woman from whom elegance is a lifestyle. With a luxury Couture Atelier discreetly nestled in West London, Lucas Bueno offers the ultimate style solution for any woman who wants to reclaim her style identity.

Master in cuts, design and tailoring, Lucas selects the most luxurious fabrics from Scottish tweeds to Italian silks offering both a couture experience and extremely good value for his beloved clients.

When asked about his collections, Lucas Cruz Bueno comments What defines my work? My designs and how their craftsmanship speak for themselves. They are exceptional not just in their rarity, but in their quality. For us, handmade really means handmade. I don’t compromise, not take short cuts when designing and making my garments and accessories.

In the new normal where “being” is the new luxury, finding one personal style is the new trend and couture is the answer.
