The art of seduction as self-love and confidence, a celebration of women’s charming and self- empowering sensuality imbued with folk and cocooning vibes translate into an eclectic collection making a bold statement about female power.
For the fall/winter 2022 season Luisa Spagnoli takes her squad of feminine and independent women on a journey to discover their intimate self and unleash their delicate sensuality with self- empowering fashion revolved around key tropes of their wardrobes, this time peppered with folk flourishes and embellishments, and eye-catching primary colors.
For the show as part of Milan Fashion Week, the squad helmed by the Italian designer and entrepreneur takes over the 17th century Rotonda della Besana, its imposing colonnaded architecture left spare to exalt the richness of meticulously handcrafted intarsia and jacquard patterns, preciously embellished gowns, and a bold color palette.
Punctuated by body-hugging silhouettes exuding a cocooning feel, the collection charms and seduces, exalting the designer’s feminine ethos catering to women’s desire for confidence.
A recurring element, soft and precious knitwear exemplifies the brand’s artisanship and Made in Italy know-how at its best. Punto di Milano stitch knit appears on miniskirt and petite cardigans imbued with a youthful vibe, while oversize cable knit and tricot cardigans worn effortlessly reveal seductive rib-knit tube frocks. They are juxtaposed to chunky turtleneck sweaters, coats and vests bearing intricate intarsia patterns to mix and match with gusto.
Tailoring builds on the feminine and versatile bent, as pencil skirts in vibrant tones including emerald green paired with double-face wool biker jackets, moiré pantsuits feature strong-shouldered cropped blazers and leather options with sculptural shoulders add some edginess to the suiting component.
At night Luisa Spagnoli’s girls steal the limelight donning bodycon jacquard gowns embellished with lurex yarns with pointy shoulders and plunging V-necks, sparkly minidresses with intriguing see- through effects or demure one-shouldered dresses in silk taffeta with asymmetrical drapes and strapless wrap frocks with sensual front slits rendered in a variety of gemstone nuances.
Accessories exude a sophisticated and cool vibe adding an unexpected touch to every look. Biker- inspired heeled boots, thick waist belts featuring burnished gold buckles and crocodile embossed oversized clutch bags, some with knitwear details, punctuate the lineup from day to night. Puffy golden bangles are ubiquitous, a strong statement about female power charged with a refreshing sense of self-confidence.
