An upscale collection for discerning women-from Milano- Italy...
|classic -in gold leather-length is right below the knees|
|shimmery metallic knits|
For Fall/Winter 2013/14---this Sardinia native designer- who doubles as Global Creative Director of Kenzo (in addition to his own eponymous collections)...was inspired by "eccentric and cosmopolitan women...who shun fads and prefer wearing clothes that express their spirit and faithfully reflect their complex personalities..."
|lurex wonderfully woven|
|luminous Swarovski crystals -hand embroidered floral inserts on a dress made with traditional menswear fabrics|
BUT modern attire too-for women on the go, we think---and in flattering cuts that would work on many body types and age-less---not clothing that looks like it came out of the wardrobe department of a movie set...or strictly relegated to those ubiquitous what to wear in your 20's print columns...
|Deep fuchsia -suit comes in different fabrics-reminds us of lovely ones our mother had but not in this vibrant tone|
|oversized coat-mix of luxury fabric and pinstripes|
|leather shoes---with sculptural solid heels---|
|love this vibrant tone-in a princess shape wool coat|
|our fav....this two piece suit-borrows from vintage menswear---reminds us of iconic military uniforms our father's wore in WWII|
|back of skirt...|
|nubby wool with painterly floral inserts...|
|classic sheath- floral designs that appear like watercolors- bright reds/oranges on black/white|
|in pinstripes wool---princess shape overcoat...|
|suit we love-in a pinstripe wool...|
A USA video service used by many Europeans designers and independent film makers---that we find a tad annoying...
