Antonio Croce Milan Fashion Week FW19
Represented by Guitar Advertising & PR.
Taste, smell, touch, sight and sound: femininity passes through all the senses to outline a sensuality that feeds off of sensations.
Uncountable, omnipresent and ethereal: a woman’s story that speaks of taste and of elegance and is translated into the presentation of Mirabilia, the SS 2019 collection designed by Antonio Croce.
Antonio Croce: Milan FW19
[portfolio_slideshow id=66955 align=center width=699 click=advance thumbnailsize=40 showcaps=false]
Mirabilia is a collection that was born from a strong connection to the Sicilian landscape and becomes its extremely striking sartorial and iconographic translation: the allure is strong and gritty, the mash-up of nature and art creates an evocative passion ready to be worn. Expression of a sensual and radiant femininity, determined and independent, with a strong and recognizable character, the line amplifies a new idea of elegance.
The natural elements are transfigured by a combination of reflections and references that centres around precious textures, from richly embellished fabrics to others characterized by an only seemingly simple appearance. The collection goes from glove leather paired with cotton gabardine and cotton and silk mikado; to viscose and silk crepe with lightweight chiffons; and 3D and printed lace, and tulle that is also printed and silk fil coupé.
The colours of nature inspire the colour palette of the collection: above all else, the gold of wheat stalks that, like a mantra, becomes embroidery on the outerwear and joins whites and blacks; the neutral shades of green and beige, which amplify the colours of the fields and the earth. And the poppy red of the all-over prints that bloom freely on dresses, shirts and trenches.
Lightweight dresses in silk printed with floral motifs, garnished with ruffles and smocking, mix with carefully embellished leather jackets, Sahara jackets with defined waists and oversized coats with details typical of bikers.
