In the enchanted forest Power, awareness, determination and femininity are the key words Simonetta Ravizza’s new protagonist; a friend and a confident who thinks that every day is made to be fully lived, whatever the agenda, sporting a masculine inspired coat in sheared mink or a long flared skirt in nappa leather.
It is no longer the time for digressions, let’s be concrete.
And so, leather and fur are merged, and camouflaged, with a savvy interplay.
Colours play a fundamental role in this dialogue: green, burgundy and blue.
Inlay decorations, stripes and mottled patterns. It is like entering an enchanted forest, inhabited by proud and romantic creatures that are sensual and enlightened.
Fur is a like the artist’s palette, like a work of art.
Contaminations and hints of Rothko’s art: graphic motifs in block patterns on mink, chinchilla and fox create, through their material textures and combinations, incredible effects of reflections and impressions of their contemporary nature.
Layering is another mantra of the designer. Even when items seem to be able to live a life of their own. And yet, they are modelled, simplified, and minimized in such a way they become necessary though not essential, like the long fox waistcoats to be worn under coats or over jackets.
The silhouettes adapt: together or separately, the pieces change the perception and leave every woman free to choose, regardless of fashion and according to her personality.
A mixture of rational freedom.
A-line skirts, flared midis or calf-length longuette; pants are straight fit or oversized, long or just stopping at the ankle; tunics are short or midi; all exclusively made in an extremely lightweight leather.
Roomy blouses in crêpe-de-chine, fur bomber jackets, mini-waistcoats to hide under big coats (also in fur) and oversized capes. Simple pieces, but they are getting more and more refined.
