ELISABETTA FRANCHI - Spring Summer 2017 Fashion ShowATMOSPHERE
Inspired by Helmut Newton and his transgressive and refined work, the new ELISABETTA FRANCHI collection evokes that luxurious atmosphere of the scintillating eighties in America. A confident and sensual Power Woman, excessive when it comes to details and shapes. Opulence and lavish dresses for a 'Dress to impress' mood with a provocative and ostentatious style that brings out femininity in a contemporary way.
SHAPES AND MATERIALS
Hollywood style luminous creations that celebrate the female body with deep slits and necklines: refined taste reminiscent of the splendour seen in cult soap operas such as Dynasty and Dallas. Long embroidered dresses, asymmetries and transparencies make for a seductive nude effect: the ELISABETTA FRANCHI woman is audacious and loves showing off, like a real diva.
Flowing and gliding lines are contrasted by sculptural and more structured pieces. Shoulders and sleeves accentuated by ruffles, flounces and asymmetries that show off the neckline.
Sexy mermaid skirts, bodysuits and tight-fitting micro tops highlight the figure and worship the body. High-waisted trousers with over-the-top palazzo and bell-bottoms reveal the legs thanks to super feminine slits. Maxi lengths for the oversized cardigans and jackets, enriched with lamé details and sparkling sequins. Animal prints, a must for the Maison, make a return matched with lamé details. Fringes, as always, are used to liven up garments and accessories alike. The spirit of the 80's revives also in its pop-rock version: mesh, torn denim and accessories call Madonna in "Like a virgin" to mind.
Over-the-top jewels and vertiginous heels are must-have scene pieces. Bold belts with golden chains and maxi strass applications highlight the waistline. Timeless pumps are the protagonists of the shoe collection, also available in patent leather in true Newton style, as well as extremely high sandals that focus the attention on the sensuality of the naked foot. Lamé clutch bags echo the colours and details of the collection.
The colour palette is enriched with fresh and bold tones. Aquamarine, ivory and gold dominate. Lacquer red and nude are the Maison's must-haves, as well as the collection's ever present black.

Dolce&Gabbana Summer 2017 Women's Fashion ShowThe starting point is no longer the outfit itself. It’s the desire to tell our story, reveal an emotion, a way of life.
In this way, people no longer purchase a piece of clothing but a memory, a love, a special moment, a DNA.
Our DNA is the South and all the symbols that represent it: flowers, pasta, bread, good luck charms, shells,
fish, religious symbols, music, ice cream, drinks, dolls, biscuits, forks, spoons, pizza and Mandolin.
All of this is love, is #DGFamily. #DGTropicoItaliano

ROBERTO CAVALLI SPRING SUMMER 2017The mood of the pioneer, the wanderlust of the pagan traveller exploring the universe of Roberto Cavalli, is the inspiration for Creative Director Peter Dundas’ spring/summer 2017 Roberto Cavalli collection. A melange of inspirations and influences, times and places, she wears her world, combining different cultures in a mix that feels quintessentially now and uniquely Cavalli.
Patchwork is a key notion: the patchworking of fabric, but also of different eras and locales. The Americas are a key starting point, prints and fabrics of Navajo and Apache tribes alongside the embroidered tailoring of Nudie Cohn, an ode to Elvis and the rock-and-roll heartbeat that throbs under every Cavalli collection. They combine with kimonos, Egyptian textiles, Buffalo soldiers, Victorian pioneers, and jaguar prints from Africa. A whole Cavalli world.
The collection is a game of contrasts. Noble fabrics - fils coupé jacquards and velvets - combine with denim. The art of the mix is vital. Gossamer beaded gowns, louche and decadent, are laced together along the seams, another form of patchwork, lending emphasis to their exquisite embellishment.
Colours are vivid, with gold, solarised orange, sunbleached pastels and chambray denim blue. Ombré finishes lend a patina of age, of clothes that have already lived and travelled.
The voyager mood is underlined by accessories: for day, generous hunter bags, while embroidered Victorian purses are a delicate accent for evening. Jewellery is artisanal, referencing native American tribal jewellery combined with Victoriana. Platform-sole wooden clogs are inspired by traditional Scandinavian dress, made glamorous via luxurious fabrics and craftsmanship.
The line is long, sinuous, the signature serpentine Cavalli silhouette evoked through slender flares and goddess gowns, skin seductively revealed through transparent fabrics and corset lacing. Male models walk alongside female in their finery, wardrobes in synch via an urge to exploration and love of cultural clash - the new Cavalli traveller tribe.
