To be or be seen. The new Patrizia Pepe Evening collection moves between reality and illusion. Finesse and subtlety mirror each other, to create elegance which is both graceful and sharp.
Details are deliberately exaggerated to highlight this dualism: Metal zips are mounted on grosgrain or satin ribbons and sewn onto garments in full view and knitwear has oversize stitching, as if woven by hand. Knit-effect embroidery on the finest and lightest chiffon, hand knitted cardigans using tubular creponne yarn; gems and sequins branded like of photo prints, paired with real embroidery on jackets.
Real attention has been devoted to fabric. Satin wool and Japanese micro-fibre for jackets and dresses which flow over the body delicately, with knotted or draped detailing; micro-weaving on jackets paired with palazzo pants; viscose stretch textured fabrics and diagonally micro-woven stitched fabric for closely tailored suits; transparent, ultra-light silk chiffon for maxi dresses, from a range limited editions designed for special occasions.
Jumpers are soft and generous, in mohair or angora. Also available in extra-fine wool and wrapped in styled folds over tulle bustier.
Feminine dresses and micro-skirts adorned with sequins, overlaid with chiffon and sophisticated hand embroidered jet detailing. The waistline and length are ultra-feminine, affording a sleek and sensual silhouette.
Accessories shine out with touches of gold leaf and sequins on leather and suede. Rabbit fur is made ultra-chic with rhinestones, for an all-glitter feminine look, both sharp and sensual and unmistakably Patrizia Pepe.
