Patrizia Pepe’s summer collection takes glamour and femininity to an “extra-ordinary”, surprising, unexpected and extremely free dimension: an enticing and surreal backdrop to urban style, with gigantic, deamlike imaginary animals, suspended between convention and rebellion, individuality and conformity, contemporary vision and sartorial refinement.
In this new aesthetics, shapes and volumes create plays of surprising imbalance, emphasized by shoulders as sharp as right angles, waists squeezed by extra-large belts, charming draping and “new work” outfits with a sexy soul, matched with ultra-light fabrics and a sudden blossoming of watercolor prints.
Iconic Patrizia Pepe must-haves, like safari jackets and cargo-biker pants, mix and match with fashion articles like micro-bustiers or very high-waisted shorts, while leather takes on glam rock brilliance, a new super slim-fit look and unexpected transparencies. In the synthetic variants, lace and trimmings create see-through effects.
It is an open-eyed journey… city streets turn into enchanted oases, between exotic inspirations and precious workmanship, where ironic, fantastic Dreamlike Animal figures suggest embroideries of feathers and sparkling sequins, applique brooches with a rock twist, and patterns of leaves tatooed on airy tulle and crisp gabardine.
The look is electrified by kaleidoscopic patterns and glints of lamé, all-over prints of Magnetic Optical micro-geometries where the palette nuances mix with one another: from the fuchsia base of urban, sensual outfits to the touch of green of fresh, casual “city & beach” apparel.
The palette includes natural colors like amnesia rose, lady pink, dream green and simply beige, next to deep hues like dreaming berry and black, in a harmonious gradation from dark to romantic, with frequent flashes of white from the primary accessories.
Patrizia Pepe’s couture summer collection mixes solid and striped stretch poplin in silhouettes defined by sartorial details; embellishes military chic cotton with frills and feminine asymmetries; combines compact fabrics with flowing jacquard and impalpable creponne, and envelops formal style in a camaieu of colors and clean elegant lines.
It reinvents the denim universe with embroidered muslin, striped tencel and washed-looking viscose crepe, in a Super Wow collection that matches high-performance skinny jeans with day-to-night T-shirts for an absolutely extra-glam, extra-ordinary look!
