Escape Couture: Thelma & Louise – The Sequel
Patrizia Pepe launches the new “ESCAPE COUTURE” Capsule Collection: a blaze of Sixties colours and shapes that sparked a crazy idea from the very first sketches: to remake the multiple award-winning film and icon of female friendship – Thelma & Louise – in full Patrizia Pepe style!
Featuring strong colours and bold patterns, the Capsule co-ordinates with items and accessories in the Autumn Winter 2014 Collection. The clean-cut, impeccable style alternates tailored coats, high-waist trousers and chic feminine blouses with full skirts featuring multicoloured patterns and details that soften the clean, sophisticated lines. The season’s must-have accessories provide the final flourish, from the leather backpack to the low-heel “Bowie” boot.
Two friends, two young, free-spirited women with restless souls will be interpreting our #Escapecouture project.
Web influencer Chiara Biasi and model Ana Moya Calzado are two contemporary Thelma & Louise characters who leave their holidays behind them, no regrets. They smile at the memories and at the new experiences awaiting them. Chiara and Ana are friends in real life, and spent the summer together in a chic-hippie holiday in Formentera, playing pranks and taking selfies. After all, Thelma e Louise were the true selfie trailblazers; in the famous film, they capture the start of their weekend escape with what could be called the first real photographic self-portrait, on film. Selfies are a new way of telling our own story through pictures, with no outside eyes looking in, just ours. The style has therefore snowballed into every corner of our lives, which is why Patrizia Pepe made #selfie24 the central theme of the FW14 advertising campaign.
The two web influencers will be the stars of the photo shoot by young Tuscan director and photographer Senio Zapruder. The action will start in a picturesque seaside setting which the girls leave on board a Cadillac Cabrio to head into the city.
The #Escapecouture Capsule Collection will be unveiled in Patrizia Pepe boutiques from 15 September. Until that date, why don’t you follow our official Facebook and Instagram pages for news and previews, and to see teasers from the live event itself!
