Kindness is the highest form of elegance
I wanted to dedicate my Spring Summer 2020 collection to kindness
– a virtue which today seems to belong to a time past.
Kindness towards the others without the need of raising the tone of voice; being kind at heart,
gracious in manners and behavior. The courteous attitude of the divine Marella Agnelli comes to my mind
– women of her caliber and education did not need to scream to be heard.
This show celebrates an attitude of spontaneous, fresh sense of elegance
– I have been inspired by the calm poetry of nature and by the ravishing world of flowers.
The pure white of jasmine’s blossoms; the bright fuchsia of azaleas; lemons’ lime green hues;
the yellow of daisies and mimosas: the collection’s colors vibrate with delicacy and tenderness.
The rose, my favorite flower, is as always the queen of my inspiration;it blossoms on pastel-hued organza tops and bustiers, or on dresses as light as enchanting floral petals.
It becomes tri-dimensional, morphing as if by magic in flowered belts; it is jewel-embroidered
with twinkling crystals on long, languid evening dresses.
It gives a feminine touch on masculine shirts or on suede dusters.
My signature lingerie-inspired slipdresses in liquid satin are trimmed with Chantilly lace,
worn under elongated trenches printed with animalier motifs for an effortless and modern daywear look.
To highlight a touch of feminine glamour, they are layered under a delicate see-through net of crystals,
seductively revealing the body.
Chiffon, silk voile, organza: fabrics are light and soft, gently caressing the silhouette.
Ruches and flounces give draped minidresses a feel of airy freshness.
To underline how the message of kindness is dear to me, I have created five silk sweaters in sherbet colors,
with words embroidered in sparkling crystals expressing a cheerful, gentle feel
– Sweetie, Cutie, Lovely, Smiley, Kind.
It is a see-now-buy-now offer which will go on sale after the show on our e-commerce website
and in our Milan’s boutique in Via della Spiga.
This collection speaks as in a whisper.
It is my way of celebrating the spirit of kindness, romance and grace, which I have always favored.
