SS20 A Queen of Hearts in New York
“Beauty isn’t an illusion” – Gianni Farinetti
An intriguing, elegant Queen of Hearts lands in New York after a long trip. While she preserves her instinctive and natural sophistication, she immerses herself in a kaleidoscopic world, filled with fascinating influences and captivating exotic vibes.
She packs an array of Chiara Boni La Petite Robe designs, always refined and quintessentially comfortable. Recollections of the magic atmosphere of Africa on the magnified wild animal patterns, ranging from leopard to giraffe spots to tiger stripes. From the East our chic Queen of Hearts brings paisley motifs and Malaysian ikat patterns. Traveling through Mexico she finds beautiful, multicolor butterflies inspiring an eye-catching allover macro-motif.
The brand’s assertive femininity translates into the versatile silhouettes, ranging from fitted shapes with belt details highlighting the waist to new boxy cuts. Floral applications appear on the shoulders and sleeves of column dresses and jumpsuits, while asymmetric cuts give a fresh, effortless appeal to handkerchief frocks worked in the new hyper soft slim jersey. A plisé satin enhances the volume of black and white evening dresses, combining stretch jersey inserts on maxi dresses in a happy palette of coral, red, yellow, blue and green. Glamorous, versatile, sometimes eccentric, the Queen of Hearts can surprise with cowboy syle accents: Texan boots and hats, scarves and backpacks in seasonal prints, extravagant earrings and sexy bustiers.
The Spring/Summer 2020 Chiara Boni La Petite Robe woman is a fascinating Queen of Hearts, at the same time country and metropolitan who can combine day and evening in a chic, original way.
Among the guests Cara Kennedy Cuomo, sustainability activist, who enthusiastically fitred the Chiara Boni La Petite Robe project with EUROJERSEY “Measuring for a sustainable future” and did not become Ambassador, Kerry Kennedy, Caroline Vreeland, Janet Montgomery, Kathrine Narducci, Nichole Galicia, Julie Mintz, Bojana Krsmanovic, Nibar Madar, Mollye Rogel and Wendy Williams. Models who marched: Pat Cleveland, Anna Cleveland, Maria Borges.
The soundtrack of the show was composed by Thomas Constanti. Inspired by various sountrack movies, he created a sound pattern called “Beauty and Illusion”, in which variations of the main theme are played to accompany the story on the runway.
The text of the story was written by Gianni Farinetti who was very happy to write a brief story on the fashion world, with its mysteries, a little suspense and subtle eroticism. Because beauty is not an illusion.
