My goal before I leave Majorca: find out how to correctly pronounce Uterqüe. Uter-what? Uterqüe. Okka first told me about the brand a couple of years ago after she went to Majorca and I’ve managed to find one of their shops pretty much anywhere I’ve been in Spain since. As if I’d keep a small detail like the language barrier from shopping. The brand’s style is classic but playful and a little eclectic, great for special accessories and shoes, and I’m loving their clothes more and more, too. Last week, I found a set of pants and jacket, based loosely on a classic tux, but in black brocade. Makes me feel like I’m wearing a glamorous pyjama. I haven’t had a chance to wear it outside the changing room yet – too hot. But I also couldn’t resist these sunglasses in the shop. Very Cary Grant, I thought. A man I imagine also wore glamorous pyjamas lots.
Uterqüe have an online shop. Which is double good news. One, you can buy it outside of Spain. And, two, nobody looks at you like you’ve lost your marbles when you’re trying to pronounce the name and all that comes out is: Üterütüt.
