UNIQUE IRON LADY
Futuristic aesthetics promoted by the Italian artists Giacomo Balla, Umberto Boccioni and Carrà Depero carried weight in avant-garde international artistic circles in the 1900’s. The fundamental element of the work of the Futurists, in fashion as in other artistic fields was, and still is today, experimentation and innovation. In the fusion of different epochs and cultures, certain elements have been introduced that completely throw the fashion world, for example embroideries, top-stitching, cut, net ribbon, metallic faux leather, POP ART colors. The whole interprets a revolutionary style, fresh and unstoppable that still amazes, and still reinvents the rules of fashion.
A completely new and unusual version of the marines/military proposal with a mix of different flavors absorbed from the Jamaican culture…reinterpreted…naturally. Successful designs are proposed again, this time in a highly chic version with a super-shiny satin in two color ways, with bright, polished buttons. The much-loved mimetic print is transformed into more feminine prints for sweatshirts, which then become fresh prints on silk taffeta. Rips and darning are in evidence, as are garments made up in part sweat fabric/part gabardine or denim; key pieces that sell out rapidly thanks to their comfort and ease.
Bleached denim and total white bull are painted with gold and silver, in a proposal that foresees the return of the skull icon in a chic key. Animal decoration in sparkling tones with all-over studding defines the detailing on denim slim fit jeans, for a look that is minimal and sophisticated. Stylish jackets and mini dresses in super-stretch denim are spangled with stones and crystals, offered in a rich mix of washed tones. This Urban Chic Style proposed with jumpsuits and long pants, has a theme of rips, frays and slashes softened with shimmering reflections and crystals. For knitwear, a lightweight lurex knit characterizes the concept of cardigans and tops, proposed in bright colors with refined and elegant finishing. Handmade Indian embroideries inspired by geometric designs decorate tops and dresses in cotton jersey, creating new aesthetics that are classy and distinct. The world of sportswear becomes hard-hitting through the application of studs and skulls in gold and old gold tones, creating a sophisticated free time look. The traditional soft fit of gymwear together with new stylish cuts, is enhanced by crystals, stones and sequins. Summer is full of color and pattern with Gold Diamond dresses. Stylish look, easy fit, exclusive joy. Cascades of diamanté and chains bejewel the backs of Japanese-inspired dresses; colored stones sparkle on maxi dresses from the exotic beaches of Goa; gold lace is added to an Ikat print offered in military shades; red sequins create oriental flowers on beach tubini; metallic diamanté and gold bead fringing decorates American ranch-style dresses; maxi stars stud denim shoulders for elite garments with an exclusive star print, for a true superstar look.Download press-kit En |It
