Like Delicate Flowers
The new Mila Schön collection, designed by Bianca Maria Gervasio, follows the “flower path” and Japanese art of Ikebana, creating a harmonic equilibrium between lines, rhythms and colors to unveil its distinctive, essential and hyper-feminine vision. Women bloom among petals of impalpable fabric, precise cuts and graphic designs inspired by Europe and the Orient, wearing sophisticated and modernly elegant pieces pervaded by continuous sensations of delicacy and freshness. The palette is pure and full of light, from the natural nuances of white, sky blue, pale coral and tobacco, to joyous tones of mandarin, geranium, lime and sun yellow, often combined in high-impact, graphic color-blocks. Timeless designs and motifs from the house’s archives are revisited in the season’s new prints: Maiolica, inspired by the enameled Spanish tiles, on a woven canvas base, and Persepolis, a kaleidoscopic mosaic of horizontal stripes, micro-geometric forms, crosses and stylized flowers in a mixed fantasy of silk crêpe.Sangallo lace with hexagonal patterns, macramé with embroidered orchids, iridescent gold lamé, pure silk and double fabrics – often united to ethereal organza – create lines that are fluid but always artfully defined, livened up with gigot sleeves, corolla or petal cuts and profiles with frills and ruffles that emerge like sinuous waves from skirts and dresses. The iconic Mila Double Clutch places a nappa leather clutch, with metallic gold closure, inside a large multicolored envelope, elegantly matching with diamond-decorated multi strap sandals built on lacquered, conical heels. The look is complete with headbands in natural straw or precious embroideries, chamois suede belts with gold metallic details and sculptural jewels where drops of colored enamel land on a galvanized, champagne-colored base.
