This season, the excellence and refinement of couture’s great figures get a plain and simple modern twist. It’s time for gracious, delicate neo-minimalism, where precious materials interlace with clear lines.

Halfway through grunge slack and zen minimalism, here comes a revival of the early 90s trend from Belgium and Japan, in its valuable version. XXL wraps, in flowing volumes, simply curl up or contrast with the ultra short. They set a determined, slack look, in white, black or grey, tinted with mystical-like sensuality.

Carefreeness and the sweet, 50s Italian way of life, inspired the season with some nostalgia: underlined waists, volumes in cases, petticoats... The charm is retro, dusted off by sculptural, modern cuts and graphical power. The look is modern, halfway through sweet coquette and femme fatale.
