For Autumn Winter 17, we explore a world of love-worn clothes with whimsical Italiana airs.
Dark romance inspires the collection, because as we all know, no love story is flawless. Flirty dresses, ruched waists and off-shoulder ruffles are interrupted by distressed denim separates and bronze rivet detail.
Enveloping outerwear is mixed in with more structured pieces, including the Piero Jacket, a patch pocket military-inspired style. A khaki wool turtleneck completes the selection, and when worn with a mini skirt, is exactly what’s needed to conquer unpredictable weather.
The highly detailed Fresco print and polka dot further embody the Italian aesthetic, as does a Fornasetti-inspired artwork emblazoned with the words Numero 37 Viale Lune. Colours are flush and full of life, with rusty rose, merlot red and the lightest pink on show.
A tribute to incurable romantics, we suggest you give in to fantasy and embrace that rosy belladonna glow.
