There is a cool, casual feel to the Candela Holiday 2011 collection that nevertheless radiates class and refinement. The fact that this line is inspired by vintage clothing really explains all of those differing qualities. There is something about another era’s fashion that has been tweaked for modern society that really brings out the character of the person who wears it.

In particular, designer Gabriela Perezutti was inspired by British television period drama series ‘Downton Abbey’ when putting together the Candela Holiday 2011 collection. Obsessed with the show, she decided to add a twist to the clothing, shortening hems here and slimming silhouettes there for an overall sexier look. The result is a sweet, festive and sophisticated line that is perfect for this year’s holiday season.
