This is an actual bucolic post (if you need more proof take a closer look at pic No 4), maybe reinvented, surely feminized but still fashionably undeniable. You really can’t miss the flora (and fauna) existence stamp in the form of hot pants and the ever so handy knitted sweater (a definite campfire essential).
So for all I know, I could be stacking up on giant pastel marshmallows and heading off to a mountain cabin somewhere.
And maybe I am.

With such an eclectic taste and sweet personality, Sofia Vakratsa, Owner and Buyer for Matchbox Boutique showed me around the place in Psihico and let me take a look at the spring collections blooming in the store.
My absolute favorites were the jackets by Maison Scotch (http://www.scotch-soda.com/en/collection/campaign/category/women),very Isabel Marant-ish with detailed embellishments, (one of the latest designer additions to the store), the laid back cool pieces by See by Chloe, like the pastel aquarelle pants and the ruffled coral hot pants and the one piece I simply could not take my eyes off of was the khaki floral parka.
Sofia is always on the lookout for emerging designers and surely has a cutting eye for new talent. With a soft spot for French fashion houses for their casual chic attitude, she chooses not only stylish but also wearable, timeless garments. And she has clothing and accessories for every taste.
When it comes to clean lines with a twist, Vanessa Bruno‘s clothes are the perfect choice and Jerome Dreyfuss‘ bags (http://www.jerome-dreyfuss.com/) will make you feel like one of his loyal celebrity followers (see SJP). Bohemian lovers will be obsessed with Elliot Mann‘s vintage boho creations (http://www.elliotmann.com/) and for an easy edge, Danish brand Best Behavior and Vivienne Westwood‘s Anglomania will definitely earn you compliments. You’ll also find stylish T-shirts and tank tops by American Vintage, Fine Collection and the American Kain Label and for those in the know, Matchbox also houses Brazilian Osklen (http://www.osklen.com) (yay) together with Brazilian swimsuits from Lenny, Triya and Salinas with the usual amazing cuts and exceptional quality. And if all that wasn’t enough, Californian Myne (http://myne-la.com/) have the boldest prints with such a refined aesthetic!
And a VERY welcome SURPRISE for All You Need Is Style’s followers: with every purchase you will get an amazing Matchbox candle by Japanese house Takasago (he collaborates with Tierry Mugler and Issey Miyake for their perfumes)!!!
