· F/W 2012 · Ter Et Bantine F/W 2012 BY Michele Llanos / Mar 02 12 @ 4:23 PM
Manuela Arcari is the designer behind Ter et Bantine, an Italian brand which has had a presence of over 20 years. Her aesthetic is anti-uniform, dark and structured, extremely well constructed and she is very consistent. If you prefer armour like clothing with a serious backbone and extremely luxurious fabric, this is your brand. My favorite pieces were the ruffled leather “breast plate” jackets, paired with black hats and the jumpsuit, just because they were a bit more relaxed than the rest of the collection. All in all, if you like dark, strong and shadowy, wearable and durable, this was a productive collection.
