Antonio Grimaldi FW16 Icarus Couture Collection
Discover Antonio Grimaldi‘s Fall Winter 2016.17 “Icarus” Couture Collection that was presented on Wednesday, July 6 in the Salon Louis XV of the Hotel Ritz in Paris.
“Couture creations such art machines built to fly and reach the dreams. In a series of dream-like and real suggestions that bring to mind, with an underlying romanticism, the greek myth of Icarus.
In the couture collection for next winter, clothes become sculptures to wear, thanks to the crepe cady tissues doubled with organza that create volume and give structure to the silhouette. Triple organza with different shades, from gray gradient on the lilac, creates a mirror effect. Inlays of crepe cady on silk tulle, then, reveal naked and transparencies and the opulence of the rich crystal embroidery seems the fabric sewing, in a game of plots and warps, which retains the texture. Tulle feathers, the use of the fil cuir lamé, the silver wire, maximalists embroidery that recall the textures of fabrics, even in hand-painted ostrich feathers, in a dichotomous contrast with the new study of the shapes. Lines are clean while marrying the wealth of pearls crystal embroideries.“
