La Petite Robe. F|W 2015-2016
Through a frame of timeless elegance, La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni Fall 2015 Collection is a reflection of modern femininity.
The collection takes shape with soft colors and a focus on the silhouette: clingy bodices and thin contrasting belts define the waist and elongate the form, bursting into weightless pleats and asymmetrical skirts. Knotted details on necklines open into wide shawl collars and kimono sleeves, used to create proportion. Metropolitan looks include seductive one-shoulder jumpsuits with eco-leather inserts, and masterful draping in Chiara Boni’s signature sensual simplicity.
Powdery mauve, rosewood and lavender tones predominate, with darts of florals and pops of cyclamen on the brand’s signature stretch jersey, now paired with a new, warm, wool jersey. Delicate inserts of watercolor tulle and Chantilly lace are seemingly transparent. Subtle applique velvet flowers appear, alongside impressionist prints, underlining a soft, romantic consistency.
Evocative of a dense, secret garden, Chiara Boni presents a detailed and wistful reflection of nature by introducing tones of emerald green with ink, iris and indigo. New cuts in sleek, iridescent fabrics shimmer like insect wings and give movement to long narrow skirts with delicate trains, paired with fitted jackets with godet effect.
