I have to say that I was really bewitched by this dazzling and yet poetic collection.
Taking place at the Triennale they already had me at the entrance with their delicious rose tea, but it is when I entered the room with its walls entirely covered in mirrors in order to highlight the models that they really won me over…
Clearly inspired by the flapper girl and the baroque aesthetic, this collection was truly beautiful…
First of all, I just loved the colors. It was as if they had tried to combine, in one room, all the most luxurious colors ever imagined.. Dominated by accents of gold, the collection was declined in pink, lime green, orange, beige, and bordeaux.
Then, they were the fabrics… Silks, cotton, georgette, suede, sheer, matt, shiny… And let’s not forget the detailing; sequins, pearls, embroideries, lamé…
And the accessories. What about those shoes, but especially, what about those gorgeous bell hats? If it wasn’t for my afro I would have get one right away…!
It was all done so delicately that it was like assisting to the presentation of a couture collection, but without all the fuss… Wearable Couture.
But it was not all about clothes, as in the other rooms were the video and images to present Uniqueness’ brand new project. The very innovative: Cast Uniqueness.
How would you feel if you could influence the direction of an entire collection..? If your ideas, your inspiration could be take in consideration by the designer itself…?
This is the aim of the project created by Alessandra Facchinetti which allow anyone to create their own moodboard with inspirational images. Those images will then be reviewed by Allessandra herself and could be include in her final collection.
Have a look at the video:
On and all, this was one of the most beautiful and delicate collection I have seen this season…!
