HERITAGE NAVY GRAND BALL !
… A NEW HEROINE’S STAR SHIMMERS AT THE CADETS’ GALA BALL
Coat-tails, ribbons, buttons and braided frogging make her stand out among all the guests, like medals for valour. Her militant naval look conjures up a new combative feminine sexuality.
Heraldic decorations in lurex and jacquard ornament uniform jackets, peeping through cheekily on lingerie as well: a sultry incandescent indiscipline is hinted at.
Hussar jackets and spencers with evening suit trousers. Trouser suits projecting androgynous elegance.
Short stiff capes fall across draped shirts, pants and fluid suits.
Ecological leather goes with warm fabrics, woollen cloth, stretch wools and soft jersey. Patrizia Pepe revives and renews its minimal tradition, launching it into a grand deconstructed waltz.
Special needlepunched motifs on knitwear and padded jackets make for amazing relief effects.
Rips and tears, worn patches, loose threads all make sure there’s not a trace of good manners left, especially in the super used denim section…this definitely belongs to a ball where the lights have
long since fused.
Neutral sophisticated tones: officer grey, royal navy, indigo and heritage green. Against these backgrounds, sudden bursts of electric brushstrokes or oxidations, antiqued
sequins, metallic effects.
Exquisite accessories glimmer in the grand ballroom, lit up by a trickery of shine, strass and buckles.
