Alberta Ferretti Pre Spring 2016

09 Dec 2015

Alberta Ferretti 

The collection opens with a series of outfits recalling faraway lands. Precious prints and fabrics appear to be a Western version of Indian and Middle Eastern traditions. Many pieces combine sheer materials with jacquard and floral prints, but there is also room for some safari-like ensembles, featuring sand-coloured jackets and trousers. Evening wear mainly focuses on black and white, clean shapes embellished with understated, couture waistlines and hems, as well as... Read More

The collection is a tribute to light and stars: jewelled belts seem like shining stars, while evening gowns are embellished with crystals and shimmering appliqués. Tapered tunics exhibit a sensual transparency through corolla skirts exposing the legs, that are sheathed in a pair of cuissardes. Evening gowns feature voluminous skirts and total look colours. Fluid, light fabrics alternate with lavish velvet, while tight, embroidered dresses are paired with tone on tone furs. However, at the... Read More

Raf Simons rilegge la moda di Dior alla luce di un nuovo minimalismo: partendo dal passato, dall'underwear di epoca vittoriana fino alla giacca iconica della Maison, il designer si concentra sul futuro, su ciò che è moderno oggi. La collezione è dunque un incontro di maschile e femminile, accenni romantici e rigore militare, classicismo e contemporaneo. Semplice, ma super femminile, in pieno stile Dior, questa collezione racchiude lo spirito di Monsieur Christian e la... Read More

‘Hurray To Mum’ Dolce&Gabbana FW 2015/16

21 Oct 2015

The inspiration of the Dolce&Gabbana Women’s Fall 2016 collection was THE MOTHER (mamma in Italian).

The mother is the heart of the family and in this way Mr. Dolce and Mr. Gabbana had a very intimate, personal approach when creating this collection, because the image of the mother that inspired them comes from their own memories as children. The collection has a great amount of creativity (new shapes, embroideries, prints, collage) and it featured 89 looks (plus the finale). The... Read More
