Eva Jeanbart Lorenzotti is the face behind the luxury website Vivre.com. Through her knowledge of fashion and style, Eva has scoured the world to find the greatest pieces out there, from designer handbags to bespoke silk scarf chairs to exquisitely tailored masterpieces. Unlike most etailers we have grown accustomed to, Vivre brings you a compilation of pieces you would never imagine finding at a single website. Eva updates Vivre with notes, her favorites, and trends for the season. We had the opportunity to ask Eva her thoughts on Spring 2009 trends, must-haves, and plans. Read her interview below and stay tuned for a giveaway from Vivre later today!
PB: It is now Spring. What are the 5 must-haves for a Spring wardrobe?
Eva: 1. A generous -but-light wrap that can be used as a scarf or shawl
2. Blazer; This is a good piece for most people because there are so many different ways to wear it.
3. Big Bold Jewelry! A chunky necklace, enormous earrings are a cuff to stop traffic.
PB: What are the big trends for spring?
Eva: Tiered ruffles, sheer fabrics, exotic skins, statement pieces, florals, intricate tailoring, clustered embellishments and beautiful embroidery and appliquÃ©.
PB: Most of us are feeling the effects of the down economy. Which pieces are the best investment pieces and why?
Eva: Statement pieces are the way to go. From a classic handbag that you will always use to an incredible piece of jewelry that will be as relevant in ten years as it is now, you wont regret it down the road. Robert Goosens ‘s pieces are fantastic investments and the success of his work and its longevity speaks for itself.
PB: If we ran into you this spring, what would we definitely see you wearing?
Eva: VIVRE Women’s Silk Satin Stretch French Cuff Shirt in one of our 10 fantastic colors and my silver or bronze horn handle Evita bag.
PB: What trend for spring can you not get enough of?
Eva: I love all the gorgeous nudes, from silky tops to nude color sandals, it is a flattering, romantic look.
PB: What trend for spring could you go without?
Eva: Harem pants
PB: What are you doing this spring?
Eva: We are going to be working on launching a new vivre.com With more selective product offerings while creating very unique products, simpler navigation, and a more user friendly checkout, the changes are hopefully going to be very well received. We will be featuring new brilliant colors and textures in all handbags and small leather goods, fantastic collaborations with unknown jewelry designers, giant parachute silk beach wraps, the perfect spring trench, colorful summer shoes and flip-flops.
