Origami and fabrics


I will never stress it enough. Despite how much I love Armani, Chanel, Michael Kors etc, there’s much more out there! So here I am with another name to fill the new designers’ section. What do you think of this? Her name is Francesca Ruta and I personally love her way to experiment with new volumes still keeping it neat and wearable. In the image by Alessia Micheletti – origami faux leather cloak, technical fabric black dress.

Non lo dirò mai abbastanza. Per quanto io ami Armani, Chanel, Michael Kors e tutti i grandi (e soliti) nomi del mondo della moda, c’è molto di più da vedere! Eccomi quindi ad aggiungere un altro nome nella sezione new designers. Cosa ne pensate? Si chiama Francesca Ruta e personalmente adoro il suo modo di giocare e sperimentare con i volumi ottenendo però un risultato estremamente pulito ed indossabile. Nella foto di Alessia Micheletti – cappa origami in ecopelle e abito nero in tessuto tecnico.


We are talking drama here. This amazing long dress was patiently created by Giulia, crossing and sewing each fringe one after the other.

I know you think you’ve seen a wonderful garment already, but wait to judge until you’ve seen the back! (; I wouldn’t show you something I don’t believe in, this girl has got talent, her manual skills and precision are astonishing. Continue reading

The new Marilyn

Back we are with our New Designers appointment. Here’s an amazing white dress from Brenda which immediately made me think about a modern Marilyn Monroe. What do you say? Spring’s approaching and the weather in Milan has been beautiful in the past couple of days, reaching 20 degrees! I’d just want to wear this right now for an afternoon walk in the park! Ok, I’m dreaming here ’cause I need to study for my exams, but I think this garment would be the perfect interpretation for the 2012 little white dress.
