Día a día con estilo, por Benetton

by Be-Blogger España on: Abril 20th, 2012

Cada día hacemos un montón de tareas, de modo tan mecánico que casi nos nos damos cuenta. Tomarnos una taza de café, bajar a la compra o mirar si tenemos mensajes en el móvil son actividades tan cotidianas como indispensables en nuestra rutina. United Colors of Benetton ha pensado en eso, y por eso han lanzado una nueva linea de accesorios que incluyen tazas de café, auriculares, shopping bags y fundas para el móvil. Hace poco recibí mi shopping bag en neón y mi funda para iPhone ¡y no puedo estar más contenta! Como es característico de la marca, el color inunda cada accesorio para convertir nuestro día a día en un estallido de colores alegres.

A partir de ahora ya no hay excusa para levantarse con malos ánimos o tener pereza a la hora de ir a comprar. Y que decir de lo agradecido que va a estar nuestro teléfono gracias a los mimos que le va a dar nuestra nueva funda de lana! El estilo se logra gracias a los pequeños detalles, ¿no creéis?

 Go comfortable to sales

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Julio 1st, 2010

Sales have just landed in Madrid and I’m full of happiness thinking what new things I’m going to buy in my favourite shops and brands stores.
I have a list larger than Santa Claus‘s wishlist. I live at a 4th floor but it could touch down the street…
The bad thing is I’ll have to decide along this list what I want more and leave the rest for another occassion.

Sales are great, but we have to be ready. You need to dress like if you were going to a war, because you’ll have to look for clothes on shelves and racks on stores full of people and I’m not made of iron… I will get tired.
To the end of the day, after a long sales journey, I’m like a sport woman just arrived from the gym. It’s really important to wear comfortable.

The main point is feeling comfortable. Nothing of strained looks that are uncomfortable to stand with for a long time. A normal sweater is valid for a day. Better if it’s thinner, and it will look great combined with shorts.

Don’t think about heels, erase this idea from your mind. Leave them at home. Heels are uncomfortable. It’s better to go with a beautiful flat shoe, like a dancer shoe, nautical shoe or similar models. I love buckskin shoes, with tassels on the front and a attractive manly look.

We have to insist again on the thinner clothes we have on our wardrobes. Nothing can disturb you when you’re looking for clothes or when you’re in the fitting room.

A nice boilersuit with flowers printings will solve the problem of pulling off thousand of layers of clothes to prove a dress or a jeans. Better with less things. We lose less time. But a thin cardigan will be ok if the air conditioning of the stores is high.

And if we want to go comfortable and fashionable at the same time, we can choose a Victorian style shoes, simply, basic, that will avoid any inconvenience during all the day. A modern look combining it is our personal key. I like being striking.

 Fuencarral, the 1000 styles street in Madrid

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Abril 21st, 2010

My favourite area in Madrid is Fuencarral street. My whole world is there: shopping, pleasant surroundings, good stores, the best clothes, the latest styles, the most advanced trends, and the best friends… who are lucky to live in that zone, in old houses adapted to the top styles nowadays.

When I enter to Fuencarral street from Gran Via, another of the most special streets in Madrid, it’s like entering into a new world in another city. Beside it’s Chueca, slightly above it’s Tribunal, and if you continue walking thru, you will find Malasana. Three neighbourhoods where life is different, music changes, the bars and the atmosphere are as cosmopolitan as you could imagine.

Lucky me, Fuencarral had just been set only for pedestrians, and now you don’t have to walk through the little sidewalk, where on rush days you had to walk dodging everyone. The street ever had looked as beautiful as now…

At the moment, everything looks more beautiful. With this change, the stores seems as new, and the few cafes or restaurants that are at the beginning of the street are now more visible. But if you wish to take a coffee or something like that, after a good shopping evening, I recommend you going to Malasana (if you like an offhand plan) or going to Chueca (if you are looking for a modern plan).

After visiting the stores of this street, you have to stop at Mercado de Fuencarral. At the moment, it’s different from the past, but there are a lot of stores inside, offering the trendiest clothes of the new season. You can find everything: complements, T shirts, dresses, sweatshirts… and shoes! There are special reserved spaces with all the models.

Just before the market, walking up from Gran Via, we have a little square where we can take a coffee after a hard shopping evening. But, in the rush days, it’s like an impossible mission.

Your clothing style doesn’t mind at all. Fuencarral has from Hip Hop clothes and japanese trends, passing through laylike fashion, that I personally love, Indie style (perfect for the concerts I use to go), and if you want to dress more stylish, you can, because there is no one ruling style, everything is mixed.

I remember have seen the most striking styles in this street. My favourite was a woman with pink dyed hair who looked good with her dressing style. She looked very good. I don’t know how she did yet. A mistery.

That’s the magic of Fuencarral, where everyone is unique and special. You have to go!
