BRAND NOTES: Elisa Rivero is an eponymous brand from the Basque Country of Spain. Elisa, its creator, started learning the craft by hand at the age of 14, and eventually founded the brand in 1973. For the following 40 years, she created designs under this label, breaking out of the traditional seasonal constraints and instead allowing women the freedom to choose according to their tastes rather than the dictates of the season. Her designs are elegant, timeless, and well composed. The company closed in 2014.
