Editorial

Rossella Jardini’s collection was a homage to summer. Whether on the beach or in the city, her woman faces the hot weather immersed in colours and multi-ethnic references. Reworked kaftans, gypsy dresses and hippie outfits were joyful in their choice of fabrics, colour combinations and rich details. The ’70s were clearly recognisable as a source of inspiration, including when it came to references to Native American, Andean and Northern European cultures. The lines were energetic, the volumes and hemlines abundant, but there was no cloying excess. Tops, skirts, shorts and dresses were made of cotton, poplin, washed satin and crêpe de chine in an array of patterns and designs such as colourful stripes, jacquard, polka dots, cotton tulle with grosgrain. A white tiered dress was extremely romantic and a trench was softened with ruches.
