The Enchanted Garden
A patchwork colorful garden, fusing reality and dream. The study of fabrics and volumes searching for a new concept of 3D. The lively and spirited joy of an enchanting Spring/Summer. For SS 2019, Luisa Beccaria imagines a woman who finds marvel in the smallest detail, able to draw the curtains of everyday life on a magic universe, a green oasis full of fantastic creatures. Overlapping and lightness come out from impalpable fabrics, such as organdy, tulle, cotton with lace inserts, gauze, linen and small touches of delicate brocade. Fil coupé leads the collection, like a watercolor painting and cutting flounces, bustiers and feminine skirts, in a crescendo of textures. Day and night become one in a dreamlike world. Bands from a Vichy apron become a dawn intertwined with crochet for a quasi-folk midi-dress or on a long A-shape dress. The patchwork brocade, playing with both abstract and floral motifs, is seen on a double-breasted jacket suit worn with an embroidered linen shirt. The same fabric creates an outfit with shorts, crop-top and mini coat. Fil coupé organdy chases yellow, red and pink flowers or it draws geometries and diamond shaped motifs on cocktail dresses and summer capes. Soft lines, tight waist silhouettes and transparencies are gathered by flounces and tri-dimensional embroideries with life-like flowers and butterflies. Even the more structured evening dresses are light, with overlapping multicolor underskirts creating the background for the patchwork pattern printed organdy. The chromatic palette mixes soft and bright colors: pink hues with orange and red strokes, yellow, and aquatic colors like green, light blue, blue, periwinkle and lilac. Headgear is a must: tiaras, veil fascinators resembling nets embodying flowers and beauty, with metallic raffia caps. Shoes: ankle-strap satin sandals with bows and ribbons, monochromatic or Vichy mules with the same details.
