The Fall/Winter collection is a cocktail of eastern folk, 40’s/70’s inspiration garments with a touch of surrealism.
Outerwear and sport-couture garments, like the snorkel, in technical fabrics decorated and coupled with elegant cocktail and evening dresses with a rétro, upper-class feel.
A play-on Gordon Matta-Clark style portholes creates unexpected openings and invisible groove fastenings which reveal the collection’s tailoring wisdom.
Appliqué and neo-liberty decorations for the small technical coat and the folk-style husky, both of them reversible with double colour and embroidery effect.
Embroideries made with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and appliqué embroidered with carpet stitch graphics give these garments the value of a unique, single piece. The colour palette is a harmony of instinct: pure and vibrant tones ranging from electric and thick blue to poudre and army green. A measured touch of white and black along with thin, contrasting-colour lines which follow the shapes and define the lines enhancing the silhouette.
Surrealistic inspiration and craftsmanship details for the accessories collection. Elegant “milliner” hats are strictly hand-made: from cotillon models to veils on hairbands ending with a fur coppola cap. Footwear include day and evening pumps with off-white, asymmetric profiles and evening sandals with a single maxi felt bow.
A famed quotation of the Palazzo Pyjamas, made in animalier Jacquard pays homage to Irene Galitzine’s icon style.
