The beautiful designer of Bento, Samantha, visited us at the boutique. She is the creative brain behind The Fashion Recruit and has just launched her first volume of women’s wear. Her pieces are in classic silhouettes, made from the highest qualities yarns from Milan. Her garments are made in Melbourne and to prove that she is one chic and ethical designer, she actually travels to Milan to check that her fabrics are made from Italian factories that provide good working standards for their staff. Now that’s dedicated! We support Bento because it is ethical, it lasts, and it wears well.
Here’s a shot of Sam, in Bento top, ZARA jacket, Blue Cult jeans, Filippo Raphael heels and her amazing tote bag is made by an artist from Venice. A banker-turned-designer, she has admirable style too.
I love the Epictetus quote on her site
