MFW: ALBERTO ZAMBELLI Fall Winter 2017.18 Women’s Collection
Discover Alberto Zambelli’s Autumn Winter 2017/18 collection presented during the Milan Fashion Week. Inspired by Rainer Fassbinder’s masterpiece The bitter tears of Petra von Kant, the designer explores the intimacy of the dialogues, in sequences of images always in the balance between theatricality and cinematography.
Tailored mocha-coloured coats wrap the linearity of the nude petticoat-dresses, which frame irregular plissé sealed by silver techno-taping, as the directly heat-sealed stuffed plumage. Romantic velvets with patterns recalling tangles of roses, like the perfume of old lace, come with elastic ropes stolen from the sport world. Artisanal and technological coexist in maxi thermoformed floral merinos pullovers. Coated silver decorates geometric intarsia underlined by sartorial stitchings and details of three-dimensional bows, while the t shirts shout off the pop slogan “metallic velvet” in ribbons selvage on synthetic faces. The same faces that fluidly move surfaces in prints of decomposed polaroids and draped together with neoprene corsetry. – from Alberto Zambelli
