The SS19 collection is inspired by the female protagonists of the French director and writer Alain Robbe Grillet:Marie France Pisier in the movie Trans Europe Express and Catherine Jourdan in the movie L'èden et après.
Braiding of different yarns, colored tulle, lurex, raffia and other hand-woven fabrics create shapes that evoke the image of the french cinematographer. Natural colors as beige, blue and vibrant colors as red, silver and gold remind shades that characterize his landscapes and scenography.
The two new models in raffia, Alba and Maia, with large brims, are characterized by cut crown and can be put on with big foulards underneath; on the foulards are printed two images coming from special project of the Macedonian photographer Ivo Sekulovski.
The Antea hat, round and characterized by elegant lines, reminds the shape of a shelf. This year it is presented even in b-color and in a highly evolved shape that bonds three circular elements. Coming from the same creative gesture, a coprisse made by viscose ribbons can be worn as a hair band.
Two of the models have been thought for being modified by the wearer: the original baseball hat, available in cotton or in linen, is adorned with two stripes that can be wind up at will. While the versatile nature of the rounded triangolar hat, the Atena, is due to its unique and elongated shape.
In the SS19 the experimentation aimed at obtaining brighter fabrics and headgears come to life with the reflective fabric, which is heat-steal on straw hats. In the knitwear world cotton, raffia and viscose ribbons are bonded with lurex fibers.
The classic models always remain, like the Elisabeth, cornerstone of the collection, available in simple fabrics as in linen or in seersucker, which is a very fine type of cotton (usually striped) originally developed in India.
The newest side of the collection is the addition to the Flapper headwear of earrings realized thanks to the collaboration with the Master goldsmiths and coral artisan Platimiro Fiorenza; and the project co-designed with the artist Andrea Romano, who has chosen three iconic Flapper hats, developing a limited edition.
All the accessories are totally handmade in Italy, where tradition and innovation of fabrics come together.
