In their words…
spring / summer 2012
Milan Fashion Week
A game of colours that achieves a new and distinctive sense of depth. A
contemplation on the significance of line, silhouette and graphics –
elements that define the equation connecting substance and void. A
reflection on the dialogue between fashion, current trends and
contemporary artistic talent.
The jackets with their masculine cut glide over the body, the shoulders
delicately suggested to soften the line. Dresses and skirts are longer;
ranging from mid-knee to mid-calf – shorter at the back, longer at the
front – they possess a graceful air of nonchalance. The trousers, easy
on the hip, are slim and svelte at the hem to create a sleek leg-shape.
Black and white as well as pale shades of green, sky blue and pastel
pink, framed by leather, knit or silk trims that outline the clothes
within the overall silhouette, like precise black brush strokes. Just
as a frame emphasises the radiance of the picture it encloses.
The same game of outlines recurs in the see-through PVC maxi bag, with
its black and natural details; this also comes in a two-tone version or
with reptile skin features. For a final neodesign touch, there is a
striking necklace shaped like a collar in rigid plexiglass that repeats
the black or white collection leitmotif.
