Simona Corsellini Milan Fashion Week FW18
Represented by Guitar PR.
A bold, strong yet fascinating femininity, full of personality and defined by striking contrasts. This is the first collection by Simona Corsellini for autumn-winter 2018.
Seduced by the eternal allure of contrasts, the Simona Corsellini woman is inspired by an intriguing combination of temptation and rigour, decorum and gracefulness, and always chooses luxurious details that enhance her stylish spirit.
A philosophy of extremes summed up in the heart motif – explored, stretched, always the protagonist, hand-embroidered and radiant – which appears throughout the collection and emphasises the more mysterious, less predictable side of its character.
Simona Corsellini: Milan FW18
Key points of seduction: arms – bare or highlighted by elegant sleeves – and the waist, accented by eye-catching details, such as maxi, sequinned belts.
Put your dress on my shoulder: a monopoly on glamour with a high sexiness ratio. the single shoulder is the key feature of the sequinned top with a constructed sleeve – to wear over the duchesse miniskirt – and on the tuxedo dress with a sequinned bodice and jacket construction. And, again, a large frill covered in red sequins adds a precious touch to the black velvet mini dress.
Dedicated to sparkling divas in black&gold sequins: the long jacket with a contrast trim and the two-piece composed of a cropped jacket teamed with a high-waisted miniskirt; plus the “pointillism” of the textures of the fil coupé blouse paired with gold pants and the soft dress focuses on the sleeves, which are opposites and almost cut on one side of the shoulder.
Heart reloaded for a veritable “heart metamorphosis”: couture, habillé, free of its classic nuance, the heart evolves in an explosion of sequins to become a trompe l’oeil bodice on the techno-duchesse jumpsuit before being explored – and hand-embroidered – on the robe dress and the one-shoulder dress. It turns casual on black denim to wear strictly with the fuchsia and red sequinned top; it bursts into a show, through the jacquard and lurex suit.
Winter is all about sparkle: the fuchsia robe dress studded with reflective hearts is all a-shimmer. The tailored jacket is paired with tulle trousers decorated with Swarovski crystals, plus a mini jumpsuit with a black bodice and a contrasting, emerald green statement sleeve. The details are just as glittery, such as the suede anklets to wear above the court shoes and the black, sequinned lace which decorates the emerald dress to wear with maxi-lozenge-patterned stay-ups with appliquéd sparkles.
Thank you for smoking: the strictly masculine, bespoketailoring-inspired dress code becomes a nonchalant, elegant uniform for her in the dress (also available in velvet) with sequinned lapels; in the suit with sequinned jacket, again in velvet, and super-slim trousers. Also in a total-white version to create soft, unexpected silhouettes.
The jumpsuit trend: the new classic – smart and absolutely iconic – is the sophisticated, versatile jumpsuit. Like the tuxedo version with all-over sequins and satin lapels. The new cool is the jumpsuit that plays with symmetry: the trousers have a single leg countered by a single sleeve in an elegant structure dotted with silver details on the lace and with a belt.
More robes à paillettes: the low-neck silver dress is both mini and sensuously long, with a simple silhouette and also available in a single-shoulder version. All-over hearts glimmer on the tulle dress, which clings to the body to highlight its seductiveness and create an impeccable red-carpet effect.
