Roberta Furlanetto’s new collection is based on the idea of a look that can be assembled, on anuncomplicated complexity, and on sophisticated layerin . The gown adorns the jacket; the jacket adornsthe jersey; the knitwear, with interesting jacquard, opens on the side and reveals silk blouses, creating apattern analogous to that of the scenery on a stage set. The minimalist coat or shearling has zips on theside; the tailored jacket has removable lapels, and sleeves sometimes become gloves. All the detailsbecome part of an illogical pattern of logic, enhanced by perfect fit.
The concept of this graphically definedcollection is embodied in the form of sculptural coats and gowns, in reversible deer or sheepskin fur,composed with a taut design, but very cocooning because they re soft and bereft of stiffness. Warm andsnug leggings, tunic dresses, or highly contemporary tube dresses with absolutely modern lines complete afashion concept created with a total look concept that includes shoes with perfectly calibrated platforms.
The colours used range from black and grey, warmed by persimmon orange, saffron yellow and sand. Pink,white, cream and variants of blush tones are the colours for the most romantic evenings, based on shortdresses resplendent with semi-rigid swirls, created, as always, direct on the mannequin, blouse-dresses insilk with large pleats, and dresses with macramè that can in no way be described as traditional.
