Spring – Summer 2020
Notes taken quickly to fix every fleeting moment, thoughts that are already memories, sensations to be relished again with the help of scents and colours. The imaginary journey knows no boundaries. It crosses distant countries, reaches society destinations and features a different style for each stop, among the inevitable flowers, colours and prints that recompose the brand heritage.
The African heat gives the rose new life, turning it into a tiger-rose, whose dazzling sky-blue and yellow shades dance in captivating colour hues to the rhythm of geometric and functional lines. The French primrose flowers upon ethnic dunes with sharp chromatic backgrounds.
The interplay of contrasts combines watercolour brushstrokes with crispy lines. The lily disregards its whiteness and borrows instead fluorescent shades: the re-enactment of carioca atmospheres of South America is more vivid than ever, full of liveliness and vivacity as it is.
The soul is sporty, with easy chic connotations, where colour blocks and volumes serve to build unstructured garments. Saint-Tropez lines, herringbone pattern, polka dots and logoing: the geometric designs have a pop tone.
But then, as if by magic, you see precious fabrics, personalised embroideries, and new unprecedented textures emerge from the travelling trunk: it’s time to get ready for a special event.
Music, the sea, animals. The dreamlike story becomes a synaesthesia, where elements that refer to different sensory spheres are united by an equal intent: to surprise. Exotic influences take hold of the T-shirts. The tiger of Malaysia, at a closer look, is in fact a rock singer. The feline allure of the black puma is mitigated by pop spots. Ropes and nautical knots intertwine to draw unexpected animal shapes. Musical notes impersonate seahorses or shells with multi-coloured surfaces.
Transformism is a bewitching game that becomes material: shuttle fabrics such as garment-dyed gabardine, cottons, jersey knitwear with micro-patterns, fleeces and jacquards, and the irreplaceable denim.
The colour nuances cover quite a broad spectrum, ranging from mélange grey, fluo yellow, white, red, sky-blue, and cornflower blue to sand, deep blue and indigo.
The new-born child.
In the family portrait, the baby is the younger brother or sister. Same style, same grit, translated by jersey fabrics for little he, with placed and all-over prints, while the little she, in addition to jersey, also wraps herself in cotton sateen in three designs that wink at the older sister. The palette is unusual, and for the little boy it ranges from sky-blue to mélange grey, from cornflower blue to acid green, while the combination of deep blue and white is brightened up by touches of indigo red. As for the girls’ version, on the other hand, in addition to the unmissable pink, the chromatic proposal includes white, now combined with indigo, now with black.
