Capri pants – A German export classic!
say Pucci? – Although the Italian fashion designer Emilio Pucci has been
regarded as the inventor of Capri pants for a long time, they are, as a matter
of fact, an invention coming straight from Germany. It’s no wonder, is it? –
considering the Germans’ love for Italy. These
popular summer pants were devised by fashion designer Sonja de Lennart at the
end of the 1940’s. Inspired by the Italian island of Capri that the Lennarts
had visited in summer for years, the collection, released in 1948, not only
included pants but also a skirt, a blouse, a belt and a hat. However, only the Capri
pants became world-famous. The three-quarter-length pants are no longer than
the lower middle of the calf, they are tight and cut in a carrot silhouette and
they have a typical slit in the hemline. Today, in addition to the classic open
slit, there are pairs with laced or buttoned slits and also some with a zip

are a summer classic. Combined with a sleeveless top or worn with a
bikini, they are your perfect beach partner on holiday. In the summer in the
city, Capri pants make people think of Audrey Hepburn with her pony tail and
her three-quarter-length trousers in the movie “Roman Holiday”, riding a Vespa
scooter through Rome in 1950. During the heyday of Capri pants (often also
called “fisherman pants”), more discreet colours like navy blue, beige and
white were dominating the Capri-style. Today in the 21st century,
the revival of the Capri pants brings a wider range of colours into your
wardrobe. For example, the retro look is just perfect, if you combine
candy-coloured Capri pants with a matching 50’s bustier. (You can find the
whole outfit in our online exclusive section.) And if you are not so
much into such a flashy style, you should take a look at the plain fisherman
pants by Ana Alcazar, which have an incomparable touch because of their unique
structure (e.g. hole patterns). And fans of colourful trousers will also get
their money’s worth with the selection of Capri pants in the Ana Alcazar store:
with calf-length pants with psychedelic or ornament prints.

pants are available in six different sizes. Petite women can browse for
calf-length trousers in sizes 8 to 10. Ladies with feminine curves will
find just the right garments in sizes 16 or 18. No matter which size you
wear, Capri pants are pieces of clothing for any kind of figure and should be
part of every lady’s summer wardrobe. Well-combined with an Ana Alcazar-top,
there’s only one last thing missing: great weather! So, dear summer, when are
you coming this year?
