La Dolce
Sasha Ratiu, founder of the couture cashmere brand La Dolce, already a successful jewellery designer under her own brand name, is now launching a new exquisite collection of top quality cashmere, pashmina, silk and linen garments. This luxurious collection has extremely comfortable design, stylish shapes with great attention to detail,  includes both men’s and women’s cashmere knitted clothing, home wear and accessories in plain and embellished styles under the brand name La Dolce.

Each design of this couture line is individually created by Sasha Ratiu, meticulously monitored from the drawing board, sourced from the world’s finest yarns and fabrics and stitched by talented seamstresses. Like a jewel every piece is handmade, embellished with vintage embroidery or beads in combination with semiprecious stones.

This range of unique designs will sell in the top retailers in the UK, Scandinavia, Russia, Kazakhstan, and countries further east. A number of retailers have been approached and they have welcomed this new enterprise.

To prepare this collection, Sasha Ratiu travelled across the world looking for organic products and natural dyes for the collection. For example, for pink, red and burgundy colours, wines and berries are used; for green colours, mint extract; for the yellows and browns, nuts and roots. The technique of fixing the colours and making them resilient is an ancient secret known only to few.

Sasha Ratiu plans to launch her label in October under her own name and also the R M F label from her atelier in Nepal, owned by Rajni Malla Fistolera.

For further information and a personal preview of the collection please contact our office at La Dolce Ltd, 18 Fitzhardinge Street, London, W1H 6EQ or by email at
