IODICE- A POLISHED EASE SAMBAS ON FOR SUMMER 2009
BRAZILIAN SENSUALITY FUSED WITH REFINED TAILORING

The last RTW fashion show we went to designed by the Brazilian Valdemar Iodice, we were thinking, ‘party-on’ with the club clothes that ruled the runway.
Well, that girl is gone, replaced by a poised woman who is sexy with a casual elegance. And it wasn’t just us who were happily surprised by this posh outting…
INSPIRATION: Iodice was channeling Atlantis, the mysterious city for S/S 09 collection.
“Precise constructions recreate the silhouette from a woman full of power, sophisticated, with freedom to simplify the ways…
Sensual touches with proper tailoring, tight shapes, architectonic, dresses columns and partial pleats.”
What we loved are the “Sunset” colors…black, white and a glorious palette of sea blues, …mixed up with neutral sandy tan tones.
Dramatic long dresses in abstract patterns that are easy to wear, and low slung, flared bottom turquoise trousers paired with a cropped wave-scalloped ivory blouse are our favorite looks.
ACCESSORIES: Oversized laser indented leather satchels, belts, and sandals and B/W hats hit the right note.
