A capsule wardrobe is a well-curated wardrobe of key garments that become the foundation of just about any outfit. The term Capsule Wardrobe was first coined by Suize Faux in the 1980s. She was a West End boutique owner who introduced her clients to minimalist brands with her ‘Seven Easy Pieces’. In 2014, Caroline Rector, the founder of Unfancy, reintroduced the concept with a 37-piece capsule wardrobe. While the term capsule wardrobe has only grown in popularity, these days, capsule wardrobes have taken on a new meaning, pushing the concept of having key quality pieces that become the foundation of outfits season to season.
So, if you're looking to set up your shop with a capsule wardrobe that your customers will love, here are five key garments from our discounted Italian brands that you should include in your collection.
