#MFW: Daizy Shely Women’s Spring Summer 2018 Collection
Daizy Shely presented her spring summer 2018 collection at Milan Fashion Week taking inspiration from “the love that elates us yet makes us vulnerable, in accordance with Freud’s theory, building a collection based on contrasts, on the unstable equilibrium, on shadows that darken the light, on things that are not always as they seem. Eros and Thanatos, a compulsion for life and a compulsion for death. Two instincts that dominate human beings’ lives and inevitably tend to contrast each other in an eternal battle that threatens our search for happiness.”
Contrast is a recurring theme in the collection and is seen in the color palette: acid green, pale yellow, coral and turquoise. In collaboration with artist Umberto Chiodi, the prints for the collection are created that are a celebration of love’s mutability and contradictions.
“Tiny cupids and delicate feminine figures float in an atmosphere of apparent harmony. Only a closer look reveals disturbing details of ropes tightening around necks and fearful expressions.”
