For Spring Summer 2019, ELISABETTA FRANCHI, is making dreams come true for her customers: her wearer, that prefers to dress in glamorous and sophisticated pieces, is moving in a totally new dimension where time and space does not exist. Thus, she is wearing the creations of her dreams and is making her own visions come true. Therefore the borders from reality and surreal moments are creatively blurred and this game is highly inspiring to observe. In her dream reality, everything you can imagine becomes real: for instance traditional elements are presented in unconventional and unique shapes. Prints remind us of romantically coloured skies with soft reflections. These light reflections are enhanced by a bunch of plastic materials that team up with the fabrics of this collection. That unique pairing is interesting to observe and underlines the unique approach of these pieces!

What certainly stays in mind is the bright, vivid colour cocktail. Pink, raspberry, lemon yellow, candy apple, turquoise, salmon, apricot, tiger, lime green, silver, electric blue, zaffre, peachy, caramel, sheer white- we name it, this collections vividly mixes and matches them all. Various eye- popping nuances are often paired in one outfit and therefore the
overall image is a joyful, powerful one. Maxi sequins with slightly fluorescent colours appear like a shower of coloured confetti. That use of nuances expresses pure joie de vivre. They dare to make your wildest dreams come true…
Worth of mentioning is also the fact unusual material combinations are preferably shown, for example classic tweed is worn with denim with painted chains. This fabric mix is paired with naplak and eye- catching all- over prints that remind us of childhood games. On the other hand appears the lettering print that is inspired by alphabetical dice, like we remember it on a coloured chequerboard. Simply striking!
The PVC accessories are often kept in candy and bonbon colours and are therefore true eye- catcher. By wearing these accessories, another dream comes true, such as hot- air balloons become elegant chandeliers. Earrings are worn big and funky. You only live once, so wear what you love.
Some of the iconic pieces of this collection are reinterpreted in cute, smaller versions as children looks called “La mia Bambina“. For Spring/ Summer 2019, ELISABETTA FRANCHI certainly made our dreams come true…
