Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
With an homage to rebellious artists of the sixties – particularly female artists – Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli presented their latest fall/winter 2014-15 collection in Paris with quite the aplomb. Graphic prints of mod daisies covered daytime trenches in bright pink and red. Seriously cute shirt-collared dresses were stark white at the top, with a short, flouncy skirt in red and black for the bottom.
The collection then took a more serious turn with beautifully embroidered long-sleeve dresses of many different lengths, presenting both a delicate appeal, yet a strong artistic message. The embroidered gowns were done in a patchwork-like pattern or revealed sweet symbolic appliques of hearts, stars, birds, and flowers. The designers included a number of capes for the season, from lace to leather, and silk crepe, in many different lengths and styles.
The color palette transitions from bright colorblocking to more moody earth tones, but each piece compliments the next one and delivers the same message of love and freedom.
