Discover Giada‘s Fall Winter 2020.21 womenswear collection, inspired by the reflections and refractions of lakeside vegetation on the trembling surface of water, presented on Thursday, February 20th, during the ongoing Milan Fashion Week.
“The wintry frame in which this dialogue of opposites happens is an atmosphere of serenity and calm charged with delicate yet palpable sensuality. True to the GIADA ethos – one that turns complexity into vibrant simplicity – Colangelo finds fragility in strength, and strength in fragility. Veiled surfaces, hand drawn strews as emotional prints, short frayed fringes and hazy juxtapositions of materials add halos of mystery.
The silhouette is long and absolute yet full of movement. Exact and voluminous shapes are brought close to the body by way of molding and draping, the sartorial detail of AMF stitches keeping movement in place. Whalebones sculpt bodices and waists; strapless tops reveal skin. The verticality of the line finally gives way to full skirts, while pieces are constructed and layered as to create a harmony of studious imbalances. Fringing and pleating capture the twinkling of reflections in cloth.“
