Beatrice .b Fall Winter 2019/20 Collection
Represented by Guitar Advertising & PR
Beatrice .b redesigns the wardrobe of the contemporary woman: study and research on the needs of today’s woman lead to a “refresh” of the daily dress code, eliminating clichés with new offerings.
The collection opens with an ambiance in which fluid and clean lines spill into the geometry of neckscarf prints and processed viscose. The linearity of silhouettes acquires dynamism thanks to its colour palette: the four-coloured hues of air force blue, red-orange, tobacco and rose creates heavy tension between shapes and refinement. The concept of “relaxed elegance” is the heart of this corner, where bath-leisure sets, slip-dresses and tunic dresses eliminate the idea of rigid elegance that is too pre-set, to leave room for contemporary sensations. Merino knitwear is personalised with contrasting stitched details, and is mixed with the fabrics of the collection. The mohair cardigan and maxi inlay pullover take on the neckscarf geometric shapes of the mood.
Geometry evolves and immerses itself in a more urban mood, where blue and black unite to create tartan coats in which heat-sealed foils reinforce the construction and aesthetic. Gradient fringe create a union between the elegance of hyper-feminine silk dresses and printed men’s button-down shirts.
From here, black pairs with a totally different palette, in which tobacco and its nuances give shape to an understated yet modern proposal, in which the micro floral print pairs with a fringed check coat. Here, Beatrice .b focuses on the construction and study of shapes and materials: the maxi teddy bear cape, eco-leather cargo trousers and flannel check skirt with contrasting peplum enhance the attention to details, which have always set the Italian know-how of the brand apart. Knitwear becomes softer in powder hues and the oversized volumes of studded pullovers.
The concept of revised vintage is expressed with floral graphics in flowing aubergine-coloured silk and dark green velvet. The geometric aesthetic is seen again; when pleated, it creates asymmetric skirts with a mix of different handmade pleats and flowing tunic dresses. Merino knitwear mixes with the pleated print and alternates with the ribbed aquamarine mohair pullover with staggered stripes in different colours. Pinstripe flannel brings us back to the masculine side, which offers a twist thanks to new nuances such as grey together with fuchsia and aqua green. Grey then develops as the focus of an entire corner, mixing minimal colours and garments with a brand new version of knitwear, which lights up the corner with super-vitaminic neon colours.
White and black close the collection, creating unstructured jackets with heat-sealed contrasting stripes to be paired with carrot-fit trousers. The brush-stroke graphic of houndstooth is paired with proposals for dresses with a pleated vinyl skirt and embroidered Milano ribbed bodice, bringing the elegance of timeless prints to a more modern and more sophisticated approach. The offering of technical fabrics expands thanks to the laminated neoprene coat and tube skirt with a maxi front zip, to coordinate with oversized printed silk shirts. The print that enlivens the theme introduces a new concept to the collection. Its development is adapted to pleating and placed ad hoc in the various models to create an “edge” effect that frames the bottom of pleats.
