BOSS SS2017 Womenswear Accesories

 BOSS SS2017 Womenswear extends the vibrant mood with the launch of colorful footwear and accessories in pared-back silhouettes. Simple slides unite luxurious materials with functionality to reflect the ready-to-wear, while the iconic BOSS Bespoke bag moves into softer territory for casual sophistication.

Understated leather slides with a crossover design in bold colors or delicate lace, elegant embroidery or a bright floral camouflage, reference the same detail as the ready-to-wear. The modern uppers are contrasted with a unique leather platform and gripped rubber sole, balancing architecture with elegant workmanship, a key ethos of the SS2017 collection.

Meanwhile, BOSS Bespoke evolves with softly structured bags in primary brights. A relaxed silhouette in grainy Italian leather, the BOSS Bespoke Soft is crafted with innovative side panels that fold in for a timeless look or out for casual style, and an oversized cufflink closure.

Blending femininity, strength and functionality, the latest footwear and leather accessories from BOSS Womenswear have been created to elevate any contemporary ensemble, from modern business attire to leisurely daywear alike.

DVF SS2017 Collection

DVF SS2017 collection focuses on a new mood of energized femininity. Exploring and evolving themes on which the brand was founded, the collection evokes an attitude of strength and confidence.

A lively mix of prints introduces a feeling of ad-lib freedom. Craft is at the core: silks and cottons are non-digitally screen-printed; Sakura blossom from a reworked kimono spills over a summer dress.

Deconstructed ruffles cascade from the shoulder and generous scarf hemlines billow fluidly, while elements of tailoring add a degree of precision.

 Vibrant colors are drawn from natural sources; sky blue, terracotta and grass green.

The collection pays pragmatic consideration to what we want to wear right now, mindfully equipping us for the season in real time. Global and democratic in spirit, a cool, modern attitude remains.

“It began with the mission to make desirable clothes that are effortless, but imaginative,” says chief creative officer Jonathan Saunders. “It’s about fluidity, movement, sensuality and spontaneity. That’s why we shot everything in motion. It’s in keeping with Diane’s values of how a woman should feel in her clothes.”


Dolce&Gabbana SS2017 Tropico Italiano Women Collection

Dolce&Gabbana SS2017 Women collection inspired by the Tropico Italiano. The Italian Tropic does not formally exist but it is an imaginary line that marks the territory which stretches from Naples to include Sicily.

The idea behind the collection was to narrate the true essence of the Designers and of the brand. To have a more personal approach to fashion where style is what matters because fashion itself is momentary but style remains.

It’s not about trends: it’s about adopting a more personal approach to the design process which is not influenced by seasonal rules or codes.

Affirmation and Negation – it is not confusion but it is change and the desire to mix, to be free to change items of clothing that are most suitable to a particular moment in life or an occasion.

People no longer buy a dress but they buy into an experience, a memory, a flavor, an atmosphere. It is something very personal. A cultural exchange.

There are no longer rules of fashion but what matters is to remain true to your nature. It is to match and adorn yourself with all that you do and like in your daily life: the bread you buy in the morning, the drink you sip at sunset, the ice cream you eat on a warm day of summer.

The collection features all the symbols that are part of our daily life but that also belong to the Tropico Italiano: food, religion, colors, flowers, family, ice creams, pizza, etc.

Words that are often linked to the common imaginary of Italy but that are not that obvious afterall. It might be familiar images to Italian citizens but are part of an experience for foreigners who travel to Italy and dream of it.

Embroidered ‘hotel’ slippers, folkloristic crowns, LED shoes, pizza heels, drum bags, pyjamas with ice cream prints. Irony is all over the collection. Classic pieces have been reinvented: lace tailleurs jacket are placed on top of D&G logo t-shirts and sneakers.

Fake t-shirts which you see on Saturday market stall are reprinted with the writing ‘DG la vera copia’ (the true copy) and embroidered.

Just like a girl would find a vintage piece in the store and ask the grandmother to elaborate it to make it modern and relevant to her.

The show opened with a group of Neapolitan dancers who adapted Tarantella sounds to breakdance moves. Dressed with their own outfits.

The soundtrack was a remix of the classic Tarantella music – a typical street folkloristic music.

There were 91 looks and the finale saw models wearing skirts, flip-flops and t-shirts with the writing ‘Io C’ero’ in all the languages.
