Shop as the Romans do in bespoke boutique store Le Tartarughe, a true Roman label that echos the style and funky flare of fashion in Rome.
The heart of Roman fashion can only be captured within little boutiques that are often hidden and considered ‘gems’ to the locals. The all-Italian brand Le Tartarughe is the perfect example of this. The brand includes seasonal collections displaying the newest trends in the “Italian way” that can be explored both online or at the store.
The store is located on a quaint cobblestone lined street very close to one of Rome’s defining monuments – the Pantheon. Although a coincidence, it is quite symbolic that a brand imperative to the essence of Rome’s fashion is located a few mere steps from a monument vital to the general essence of Rome.
As you arrive at the store, the windows displaying the stylish clothing and fun accessories will pull you in. The chic white walls invite you to shop a collection full of dresses, sweaters, tunics and coats truly indicative of Roman fashion. An exact collaboration between high fashion meets practical wear with quality made products can be found here. The chunky sweaters can be used to keep you warm during the Roman winter while the funky purses can help you make a fashionable statement all year round. Something definitely worth checking out is the wristwatch with a colorful band – a true Roman accessory with a trendy touch. As Madonna once said, Italians do it better and that is surely true when it comes to fashion.
