For the Simonetta Ravizza Fall/Winter Collection 2012-2013, haute couture is where exclusive tradition meets state of the art technology.
Featuring fabulous yet versatile furs and time less, impalpable dreams, the collection is a complex and refined exercise in the duality of style and more.
In the fur segment, Simonetta wanted to combine valuable techniques such as the most classic and virtuosic stranding process with a range of innovative, rough, dynamic and futurist materials.
Full of contrasts and antinomies, the result is a specular and original, aesthetic interpretation primarily expressed through the autonomous and unifying color of black that is offset by only a few splashes of shades of white, it is an unusual blend of textures, lines and consistencies.
Light leather filleted from the inside and superb furs such as mink, fox, and ermine as light and as soft as velvet are paired up with the hard and almost metallic contemporary energy of neoprene, cloth, and boucle fabric.
Lightness encourages the use of striking, sleek geometric lines, straight, cocoon-like, or slightly padded silhouettes, and exquisite cuts reminiscent of the golden age of French and Italian couture of the fifties and sixties.
Simonetta Ravizza has created a total look from top to bottom that is perfect for a lunch or dinner in the city: pretty little black dresses that are sexy and practical, the idea outfit for today’s multifaceted woman and her busy day, at work or play.
The are also neoprene mini-dress with fur trim that reconfirm the same concept from a different perspective, which is the duality that characterizes the entire collection.
