Values and composition

Certain style suggestions from the 20’s and 30’s (like rounded and shawl collars) are reinterpreted and integrated with the brand’s signature silhouettes. Solid volumes and graphic patterns celebrate the structural innovation and the elimination of any superfluous ornament: are introduced new shapes such as the Sahariana, the trench coat, an unconstructed short blazer, the Bomber jackets, (stripped of their utilitarian identity) and thought to be worn with slim trousers, long and short skirts as to crate an elegant yet contemporary look.

FW 16

Inspiration

The avant-garde minimalism of the 60s. Geometric and squared shapes, volumes sometimes generous, sometimes very skinny: that is the stylistic legacy. An essential and austere aesthetic - and for that elegant and sophisticated - is reinterpreted and shaped with an urban attire. The chromatic choice, typical of that period has been here rediscovered and presented in its most primordial and unrefined sense. It originates from the organic and raw elements such as chalk, clay, and the dark blue of a sapphire prior to refining. A return to the womb of the earth and its colors. Loden woolen cloth, camelhair and silks, are therefore the textile representation of this imagination.


Values and composition

The need to reconnect with the past, as revised in its forms and expressions is the message to be conveyed. Geometric and shared shapes, gain plasticity through the loden cloth, camelhair and silk. The collection consists of different garments such as coats, long and short, single or double breasted, long skirts, hooded sweatshirts, blouses, vests short and long and long dresses - where the weaves of heavier loden and camelhair overlap with the impalpable and soft silk.

SS 16

Inspiration

Sea and salt. A world of sensorial, chromatic and sculptural images that inspire the collection S/S 16. The vigorous and deep blue of the Sicilian sea and the beaming white of the salt mines are muses with a marked personality that inflame imagination and our desire to recount their intensity. More than identified places they are archetypes common to all Mediterranean costs, where the cold, white and glimmering crystals are collected through patient and meticulous effort. The blue reigns therefore as chromatic choice, in contrast to the strength of the white. Two colours so different, yet unquestionably perfect and complementary. Like the grains of salt and the drops of water they originate from.

Values and composition

The idea of conceiving something intangible, unstructured yet impeccable and austere represents the basis of the "emotional values” to be transmitted. Lines and forms are absolutely essential and primordial, taking plasticity due to the choice of fabrics with a well-structured weave but light and soft. The collection comprises different garments - as dresses, tops, short line and long line open front jackets, skirts and shirts - everyone unique and independent but also ideated to be worn superimposed and combined with each other.
