Fairy tale, fear tailoring. A metropolitan fable with a dark mood.
Downtown New York covered with imaginary snow. A frosted paradise populated with the heroines of Tim Burton’s movies.
Mysterious. Frozen. Damned. Wearing the new alchemic coolness designed by Alessia Giacobino for Jo No Fui fw 2012-13 collection.
Techno-couture fabrics and a sporty spirit. “It’s a Ski-Chic world reviewed with a ‘Noir’ take, thought for intense figures like Dakota fanning or Lana del Rey,” comments the designer.
Coat-dresses in quilted chevron. Zippers closing the sleeves of shifts. Very active mirrored leather. Astrakhan fur creating ice-queen collars.
A game of volumes. Pleats over puff-skirts worn with felted men’s sweaters, taffeta dresses and blouses inspired by windbreakers, frozen macro-ruffles on the side of shifts.
Constructions and anatomical inlays brighten the knitwear up with contrasting elements. The peak comes with fur stitch angora and mohair with lurex bands, hues ranging from technical black to bronze through fuchsia and bright-green. Like an aurora borealis.
