I was not thinking precisely about them, but about Rania .... and in your commentary you me are dándo the reason in which all the Queens , how the Queen Sofia, they repeat clothes and there is no problem ... it will be that the people concentrate less on them than on the princesses, who for some have to be icons fashion.

On the different thing, the suits are suits, and have two pieces ... but Letizia combines vests, trousers or skirts, with different jackets.
I believe that if for so much importance some it has in this topic you can to put you in touch with the Royal House, and offer like fashionable advisor, or contract one and it be sent...

Well then we agree:) but when you said Queens, I think it is on it place to point out that the Spanish women does not have exclusives on repeating their clothes, its done in all houses, even to the more extreme by some (read Silvia and Sonja). And the way Rania uses clothes has nothing to do with the way the rest of the European Queens (or Princesses for that matter) uses clothes, she is the exception.

Maybe parts of this discussion goes better in this topic, its not really about the Kings name-day anymore:)

Well, at least we have something in common... Discussing if Jaime Peñafiel is a good journalist or not has no sense at all...

I'm sorry to say this, but this is pure demagogy. Of course Princess Letizia buys more clothes than the Infantas. She has to, because she attends 10 times more acts than both the Infantas together... and even so she recycles a lot (what doesn't please those saying that she already spends a fortune on clothes... go figure).
The point is: if she bought her clothes in Prada and Chanel, then yes, she would be spending the whole SRH's budget on clothes. But she is not; she's buying her clothes in a not very known Spanish designer (till now, at least).

And this is the point we have to think, before throwing artificial and pointless discussions into the air: a Felipe Varela or an Adolfo Dominguez suit isn't as expensive as a Prada or a Chanel. Not in Spain, nor in China. Period.

She spends money on clothes, because that's part of the job, just like it is for queen Sofia (who also spends money on clothes, because she need to), but she's not ruining the Spanish economy, buying a Prada dress for each of her public appearances. You can't compare apples with oranges.

And this is all, from my part.

So if she buys very clothes (and they can be cheap) she will spend very money! And then her clothes can be considered expensive!

If anyone can understand what i'm saying, i think this conversation can end here!
First: i said i read it in a magazine! I didn't said if it's true or not! I don't know how many clothes does she have or how many shoes or whatever!
Second: i can understand all of you like Letizia, but as i do, try to understand what i'm saying since yesterday! I can understand all that you said but i just ask you try to do the same.
Third: i'm sick of this, because i cannot say my opinion about Letizia because you start saying lots of things...

I'm sorry if you become upset but this is my opinion, and as a free forum i think i've the right to say it! i was just trying to say what i think and what i read.... i'm sad this is like that now! :(
One year ago, when i became member of this forum i thought this was great and we could give our opinion without being critized... now, if you understand me or not, that is with you!

JUANITA ... your you have said that you read it, it seems that in an undignified magazine, and we only you have clarified the information.
If you do not like what we say I feel it. It seems to me very likely that you do not like Letizia, but when the things we try to clarify you, you can accept the explanations without getting angry. There is no worse blind person than that does not want to see

If someone bothers to be going to see Adolfo Dominguez's web, it will see that his prices are economic, to be a famous designer. Adolfo Dominguez makes suits very good and has good prices, because of it several ministers and many journalists of television use his suits.
http://www.adolfo-dominguez.com/default_flash.asp

Felipe Varela has a shop in Madrid, his clothes the buy the high society of Madrid, though also his designs sell in some shops in the rest of Spain. Elsa, he was known by the specialists of Spanish fashion. The Infanta Elena was the one that directed Letizia to his shop (his shop is under the house where was living the Infanta even does few time).

Certainly, not the knowledge that exists here of the Spanish fashion ... the whole world know Valentino , Chanel, Armani ... but I do not know the Belgian or Danish fashion . Kina Fernandez, Purificacion García, Modesto Lomba, Elio Bernhayer, Antonio Pernas, Josp Font, Vittorio yLucchino, Roberto Verino, Haníbal Laguna ... someone knows them?

I'm not angry.
And honnestily i don't like Letizia. But as i can say this about her, i can say this about other if i think that.
And i accept your explanations but i just think we should see both sides.

Photos of fashions by Lorenzo Caprile?

I really like the few examples of Lorenzo Caprile's designs I've seen the Spanish princesses wear, such as the two gala gowns CPss Letizia wore to the Danish wedding and Infanta Cristina's wedding dress.

I was wondering if anyone has other pics of Lorenzo Caprile's fashion (doesn't necessarily have to be worn by royals). I tried finding them on the net but had no such luck, especially since I don't understand Spanish. If anyone has pics they could post that would be great. Thanks!

Mostly wedding dresses, 70 pictures if you press on the differnet boxes, including showing how a wedding dress comes to life, from the scetch to the bride wearing it.

http://www.pronovias.com/ also has some of his wedding dresses

I m quite sure he do not have a ready to wear collection, but is a couturier specializing in wedding dresses and specially tailored dresses

BTW quite similar IMO

Hello and pronovias

according to spanish journalist, maria eugenia yague, this dress (the one she wore at the 40th birthday of willem-alexander in the netherlands) is a creation of felipe varela.
