LA DOLCE VITA - SUMMER-RESORT 2017
Inspired by Slim Aaron’s photography, my muse for
this Summer/Resort collection 2017 are the beautiful socialites from his photos, in their milieus —their rooms, their gardens, with their books and their dogs.
Dresses and jumpsuits hint a certain retro elegant allure, while crop tops with full skirts and gowns with capes, cold shouldered anarkalis, exude romance in silk chiffons, georgettes and crepes.
The overarching inspiration for the collection - LA DOLCE VITA - the good life, begins with lounging by the pool, to getting dressed for evening soirees, progressing to 3-D floral finishing and pearls engulfed with gold thread-work and lines of bullion, edged with handcrafted drop pearl lace.Exuberant yet with a cultured sense of cool glamour.
To recapture all that attractiveness - polished nonchalance, the collection has breezy silhouettes in nautical stripes, and chic bianco-neros.
The sorbet hues, typically worn over summery brunches and high-tea soirées. Delicate pearls and lace cascaded overhand-embroidered zari, threadwork and bullion finished with bugle beaded tassels.
