Laura Biagiotti Fall Winter 11-12
For next winter, Laura Biagiotti restyles impressions of the Risorgimento, validating women’s pivotal role in society, today as yesterday, through her dress style, too. Biagiotti composes a HYMN TO FASHION and dedicates the collection to the impassioned women upholders of the struggle for independence and to all the female dynamism that contributes in a constructive role, day after day, to Italy’s greatness. And so the catwalk showcases Garibaldi red in shades from vermillion to purple, the Anita poncho in jacquard patchwork cashmere, the draped dresses of free women. The knitted or woven jacket-scarf is a key item, as well as the riding outfit with a blouse and plus-fours. The palette’s main shades are Biagiotti White and the blacks and greys of the Carbonari together with forest shades interpreted in a symphony of browns and deep greens, or in berry tones from blackcurrant to raspberry.
