Laura Biagiotti Fall Winter 17/18

 

“The beauty of fashion is that it seeks for meanings and answers, fueling our memory and imagination, where the results are infinite, just as the endless search for the essence of a dress. For the creation of my collection, I inspire to a woman who is pursuing a dress which donates fulfillment, and is made of intrinsic values, comfort and durability. It is in my interest, to create the idea of dynamic outfits, which are not laying on a chair at night or abandoned in a wardrobe as lifeless objects. A dress is the behavioral expression of our way of being which reveals our best side or betterstill, our way of “not being”, hide and protect. Dualism is always feminine.” Laura Biagiotti

Formal/Informal. It’s the season of the metamorphosis, in a society where women represent a plurality of roles. Laura Biagiotti brings the emphasis on the craftsmanship and on new techniques, materials and un-seen collages. Canvas and thread assume a metaphoric power in their composition and decomposition creating plots, tangles, patterns and transparencies. Cashmere and silk, velvet and lace, eco-fur and chiffon, paillettes and jute, gorget collars and nude shoulders: the presence of contrasts chasing each other, volumes which challenge the weight of the fabrics and the laws of physics. Structured lines and soft drapes for outfits which become your second skin, an extension of your body which permits to be simultaneously rigorous and seductive. Sunglasses have precise geometric forms with mirror details on the sidepiece: they filter and amplify, they are like a mask, a playful attitude, embellishment and revelation, they become the evidence of identity. Fashion is the instrument of connection between the self and the other, the form and the idea, the decor and the shell.

Canova/Burri. The collection is an oxymoron where the perfection of Canova coexists with the destructuring of Burri. The new Goddess goes from classicism to contemporaneity. Stone-decorated natural tones of the fabrics fade on the canovian sculptures with a craquelé effect of Burri’s cretti leading to a cultural and behavioral interpretation. Silk gown edges coexist with the soft-necked printed coats. Naturalistic influence apply on juta canvases mixing the raw material with languid roses. Laced trench coats, velvet collages, paillettes patchworks, golden macramé, tridimensional embroideries, with sparkling stones, inlaid cloth in toulle transform the night in a never ending vernissage. Unseen combinations donate the vitality necessary to create innovative blends: draped belts bestow a romantic touch to gowns and sculptured coats. Metallic leathers give a craquelé effect which defines sandals, boots and the mannish footwear.

Textured/Untextured. The Feminine Genius is to tricot your life. Today’s challenge of the inexhaustible Penelope, proposes the allegory of the thread and of its twine which symbolizes, the power of making and unmaking, tying and untying, weaving and unweaving. The New York Times defines Laura Biagiotti the “Queen of Cashmere” which exalts this art of intertwining. The plait assumes figurative significance and is tridimensional with cashmere, printed trompe l’oeil effect on velvet, embellished and adorned with lace details. The knitting communicates with lights and shades discovering the body using in a contradictory way, volume and lightness, of both formal rigour and seductive femininity. A romantic sense transpires in the cashmere gorgiere which reconsiders the iconic Laura’s Bambola dress from the 80’s. Geometric compositions have knots and loosened threads. Murales are scratched by time with red passion tones that enlighten dresses, knitwear and soft gowns. Biagiotti’s fashion narrates the woman in a state of continuous progression.
