La Petite Robe. S|S 2017
The Perfect Lady is the refined protagonist of the Spring/Summer 2017 collection; she exudes an effortless, impeccably allure. A sensual romanticism, reminiscent of the Fifties, reemerges, interpreted always the brand’s signature modern, always chic yet practical attitude. The season opens with the colors of White and Navy Blue, seen in contrasting tones on fitted silhouettes and midi lengths, with distinctive collars and split cuff details. The colors continue on midi length skirts, palazzo pants and new bodysuits. Complementing hyper-feminine dresses are soft shades of rose quartz, dusty rose, apricot, raspberry, aquamarine, cornflower, verdigris. New prints including Enchanted Forest, Fairy Tale, Once Upon a Time, and Feathers enhance the sophisticated attitude of the season. Feathers was inspired by an original sketch coming from prestigious Fashion Research Italy’s rich archives. For the season, Chiara Boni interprets her signature fabric two ways: from fitted silhouettes and romantic tight bodices and flared tulle skirts, to more fluid shapes with asymmetric lengths and variations on volumes. Innovations in the jersey fabric show in the shape: increased elasticity, lightness and performance. Faux leather returns ultra lightweight for the season in pastel tones. Details take center stage in the collection, with emphasis on necklines and sleeves. Lapels and flaps frame necks, others in cut-out details, lace and flounces of raw-edged tulle. Focus is put as well on the sleeves, coming in a range of variations – some are designed to resemble delicate petals or feature refined pleats; others lengthen into puffs of airy organza. Lady-like embellishments of tiny daisies and petal-like sleeves appear throughout the Couture looks of the Perfect Lady. Gowns with soft skirts, from satin- plissé, ruched tulle lit with floral paillettes and delicate scallop macramè shapes. For the first time, Chiara Boni also introduces a collection of accessories, designed to reflect the most authentic spirit of the brand. Jersey and fishnet are worked for lady-like slingbacks and ballerinas embellished with tiny bows and embroideries. In tone with the shoes, matching clutches, totes, shouler bags are offered in jersey. A rich logo-printed jacquard fabric is also used for elegant clutches and small shoulder bags.
