SPRING | SUMMER 2011

COLLECTION # 14 “DIDO & AENEAS”

 

(download pdf)

 

Extending the series inspired by travels, the collection "Dido & Aeneas" takes us to the opera by Purcell and to its heroes. Amidst mountainous valleys and arid rocky volcanic formations, plots of impossible love unravel, filled with mithological entities and bathed by the blue mediterranean sea.

 

The looks offer a contemporary insight on urban and metaphorical images where colour coordination pays a key role.

Feminine and hellenic silhouettes are set against masculine oversized garments. Supple textiles with nervous behavior are found both in smooth and textured effects. Irregular necklines and geommetrical collars and yokes oppose twisted and drapped details. Bias cuts, loose pleats and assymmetries coordinate with structured garments.

Natural accents in matte/lustrous effects, compact and billowing structures. Cotton canvas, linen and silk blends with viscose and cupro are found with easy-care finishes. Compact and dry exteriors with metallic fibers. Silk crepe and satin in solid colours, nature inspired prints or paillet embroidered.

 

The mediterranean colour palette is divided in two major groups. The first comprises the rocky neutral colours - stone, sand, cinnamon, sepia, sanguine, charcoal and marble white - and second includes the contrasting and accent colours like bordeaux, lava red, coral, watermelon, ochre and maritime shades from cobalt blue to botanic greens.

 

The accessories - boots, sandals, belts and bags - reinforce the mythological image, in mixtures of different animal textures, patent leather and paillets for shiny touches.
