Discover Gentryportofino‘s Spring Summer 2020 Silent Sun collection, that explores meeting point on the thread of light that winds on from the Great North to be embraced by the warmth and brightness of the Mediterranean. presented on September 18th, at Museo del Novecento in Sala Fontana, during the recently finished Milan Fashion Week.
“A sublime location that enhances the Silent Sun dichotomy: on one hand the minimal style of the museum, on the other hand the warm summery light of the setting between the lemon trees and the colours of the collection.
The presentation will appear as a light sensorial conversation, a slow stroll admiring dresses in a lemon grove, models on summer-looking swings, smelling citrus perfumes and the fresh caterer’s food on the experimental notes of Mediterranean sounds.
The event invitation becomes a dreamlike escape, starting from the ticket itself: a postcard showing a stylised woman featuring evanescent outlines. Ethereal as the elegance of Gentryportofino. Almost the card of a painting that gives you exclusive access to the Spring Summer ‘exhibition’.
Called not by chance “Calore Nordico”, nordic heat, the collection is a sartorial oxymoron swinging between opposites elevating femininity, in a métissage with raw touches, between tunics and macro mesh with a fishing net effect, sinuous burnt-hued long dresses as well as jumpsuits in “terracotta” shade, white outfits and raw linen coat-dresses. A blend of micro and macro, yin and yang, feminine and masculine featuring soft, fading and dégradé outlines like the ones of the silent sun.“
