Cividini Milan Fashion Week FW19

Represented by Guitar Advertising & PR.

Take me on a safari, but only if you do it in Cividini! Inspired by Karen Blixen’s movie, Out of Africa, Piero and his wife Miriam Cividini created a light, pattern-mixed, but perfectly matched collection that invites souls to travel and to defy the heat in style.

At their Milan Fashion Week show, we saw a mix between le bon ton and military, aligned with the clean and modern footprint of the leading Italian label, founded in 1988.

Instead of thick knitwear, woven garments and cashmere, we saw lightweight fabrics in black and white, earthy tones, light pink, and surprising camouflage.

 
Cividini: Milan FW19


 

Whoever grabs a single pattern after today’s event is deemed to be boring. We want dotted turtlenecks under black and white, bluntly-checkered blouses, combined with reversed white-on-black plaid skirts. Leggings designed with large polka dots will cover our legs, swathed by gladiator sandals with snake print.

These perfect traveler’s outfits were composed of camel colors with white-leg trousers and casual blazers, finished off with a tightly knotted scarf. As the show progressed, we were treated to transparent light pink shirts and dresses. Blue elements in menswear and silky camouflage trench coats brought freshness to the collection like water to a drought.

This elegant collection is intended to be both exotic and metropolitan and indeed, with today’s 85 degrees in the center of Milan, I would have cherished one of Civini’s light layered looks.
