The Luisa Spagnoli woman welcomes the new season by taking a look back at the 70s, to which she adds her own modern twist.
Boho chic is back, as suede waistcoats with cowgirl fringes are matched with slim-fit flared jeans with Alcantara details. Mini dresses and short A-line skirts feature next to floral print smock dresses, kaftans, ankle-length skirts and palazzo pants – with ethnic prints, in true hippie style.
A warm colour palette is apparent throughout the collection, with shades of tobacco, cognac and sand on the must-have fabric of the 70s – super-soft suede – while ochre yellow, denim blue and military green add additional depth.
In the cruise line, inspiration comes from the Navy with strong nautical influences. Striped jumpers in the classic red, white and blue, sit alongside high-waisted flared trousers with golden buttons, pea coats and double-breasted regimental jackets in piqué cotton.
The soul of the brand is expressed in denim, which acquires a new central role. The fits of five-pocket jeans multiply: the new flared, bell-bottomed and cropped models add to the existing skinny and boyfriend styles. Tracksuits are renewed with the delavè denim fabric, which is set to become the new must-have of the season.
Sophisticated and highly feminine silhouettes also shine through for Spring/Summer 2016. Peplum waist tops, geometrical and colour block blouses, polka dots, lace inserts, and delicate dresses are in abundance. Red carpet worthy dresses can be found for the most special occasions, with limited edition mermaid evening gowns, entirely hand-embroidered with jet stones to ensure the Luisa Spagnoli woman can turn heads at even the most high-profile events.
A lady’s wardrobe is never complete without the right accessories to complement her look. From must-have bags for everyday life – spacious tote bags, small rucksacks in deerskin and shopper bags in saffiano leather – to essential costume jewellery, including nappa leather pendants. Lastly, silk scarves and chiffon and linen wraps are there to guard against a light sea breeze, or simply to add a touch of elegance and personality to complete any look.
