CHIARA BONI La Petite Robe returns to New York Fashion Week with a collection inspired by the chic, international globetrotters of today: frequent flyers, guests of the most prestigious hotels in the world, they travel the globe in style. The Fall/Winter 2017-18 presents on February 14, at Skylight Clarkson Sq.
Independent women armed with an adventurous spirit and impeccable tastes are celebrated through the collection. This season, the brand’s signature fabric is combined with mat and patent faux leather to create charming graphics on the feminine dresses, as well as with velvet for a precious feel. Zippers, which decorate necklines and cuffs, inject a graphic twist into the clothes, and a mannish touch is introduced via the tuxedo-inspired collars.
A complete range of accessories completes the collection. Clutches and mini handbags in jersey and velvet with complementary range of pumps, mules and sandals are worked in the collection’s color palette of nocturnal tones with pops of teal and purple.
An exclusive capsule of turbans in the signature Chiara Boni La Petite Robe fabric adds a final touch. These are produced by Caritas Roma with the She Turban Project, associated with ‘Io abito qui’.
The accompanying music comes from Mangaboo, the new project by Giulia Passera (The Sweet Life Society) and Francesco Pistoi (Motel Connection). “When we collaborate with Chiara, it is a complete idea exchange. We spoke of a concept of a great hall in a Grand hotel, and the type of women you’d imagine in such a space, like the Grand Hotel of Vicky Baub. In this space, the radio plays the notes of Mangaboo which intermixes with jazz notes.”
