Editorial

The shirt is the heart of the collection. Mono-colour or printed, impalpable, sheer, or oversize and masculine. Flared or loose, with a bow at the waist or a modern lavallière at the neck. Whether ironic or delicate, its allure remains intact, its iconic refinement and simplicity. It also transformed into a long blouse or a silk crêpe de chine dress with chaste tone on tone buttons. Flounces were a recurring theme: on loose skirts and long trousers that skimmed over the floor with slits. The variety of fabrics included poplin, denim and stretch cotton gabardine. The prints were influenced by Pop Art: an ironic, witty portrait of Rossella Jardini, illustrated by artist Antonio Pippolini, decorating silk in a mix of colours. Alongside stars, hearts, polka dots and stripes, there was bright white, intense red, pink and blue.
