The micro leather biker jacket in perfect contrast to a long skirt. For daytime too.

Frankie Morello © Copyright 2012
Essential shapes, flat volumes, cuts and graphic motifs for the next Frankie Morello woman, inspired by the frigid esthetic of the costumes from Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet, combined with the more passionate atmosphere of ancient wrestling.
Just as in the triadic fable, the garment is conceived as a mathematically proportional correspondence between the human form and space in an abstract unification with the cosmos.
Graphic elements composed of triangles where the triad (color, form and space) interpenetrates and merges with itself to achieve perfect balance. No longer do clothes adapt to the body, but rather the body to the clothes.
Shapes: Trapezoidal dresses, calf-length trousers and skirts, boxy pea coats, oversize t-shirts.
Colors: Flesh tone, ochre, cyclamen, Matisse blue, green.
Fabrics: Douchesse, double mikado, crepe sablè , silk Lurex , organza, ottoman.

Moschino © Copyright 2012
Hit the “play” button to flash images from Casinò, shifting attention, during intervals on the famous film, Two for the Road, to this Moschino Spring/Summer 2013, a screen shot of an elegant woman dressed in minimal proportions, geometric lines and high-impact graphic elements.
The desire to pay tribute to an iconic reference from the Moschino world like the two-tone of black and white with a nod to the ‘60s.
Historic colours reinterpreted with new symmetries, miniatures of dresses with different details, trompe l’oeil effects, visible embroidery and oversize buttons.
But summer also loves colour and this season’s need for colour will be answered with a bow to one of the most famous textile designers who lived in Italy; Ken Scott.
Skirts and pants with contrasting trim make the collection sharp and geometric, inlaid two-tone stripes and the fabrics, moving from fuller, rounder ones to fabrics that envelop the figure, all without forgetting the Sangallo patchwork, recalling the full sun of Italian summers.
Special attention has been dedicated to the accessory, an integral part of the dress but with a different, distinct personality for each look.
A “short” film woven with a “graphic” plot for a Moschino summer that breezily shows off your legs!

Jo No Fui © Copyright 2012
Unbound explorers. New nomads travelling from exotic lands to big metropolis with modern casualness, constantly seeking unique and emotional routes.
The transeasonal journey of Alessia Giacobino’s globetrotters for her JO NO FUI collection calls for multi-layered outfits in which proportions and texture follow afar latitudes and customs.
The Ikat print gives structure to jackets and sartorial waistcoats worn over embedded bermudas or gabardine cargo pants.
Floor long bad-dye silk dresses evoke faraway ritual ceremonies; colorful oversize sweaters pair with oriental flavored sarouel pants.
Combat pants and jumpsuits are punctuated by a military netting completing the look of an adventurer who cannot resist the whim of brass pearls trapped into hand-knitted looking cardigans. Parkas are embellished with embroidery and camouflage stains.
Colonial silk burette takes us back into the city where deconstructed masculine jackets are worn over crochet shorts and very revealing bodysuits. The exclusive suede is to be worn as a total look.
Eveningwear is ultra glamorous with golden lurex and light effects showing Ikat patterns on the sequined pieces.
A no-frontiers collection created for a woman who invents her very own personal style journey every day.
