Genny Fall/Winter 2016-2017

SLEEK DECO

The passionate and f lamboyant attitude of Joséphine Baker, icon of Paris’ audacious nightlife in the roaring Twenties, is combined with the strong and sensual allure of Helmut Newton’s pictures in Genny Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
The colors, textures and light effects of Charleston dancers’ opulent, bold costumes are matched in the collection with a graphic approach infused with a ultra modern feel.
The overall silhouette is relaxed. Oversized coats crafted from a soft mohair fabric features the other face in silver, iridescent Lurex for a sophisticated, shiny effect, while the elegant, fluid suits feature jackets with delicate couture- like shoulders and slightly flared, high-waisted pants.
A signature motif of the Art Deco, which flourished in the Twenties, the peacock’s feather appears as a graphic intarsia on a feminine one-shoulder jumpsuit in white and black stretch cady. The regal creature’s silhouette is printed on a pony skin coat cinched at the waist with a polished leather belt showing a jewel-like detail and on a mini dress with a plunging V-neck worked in chiffon and Lurex for an iridescent look.
A charming dynamic impulse is introduced via patent leather fringes giving an eccentric twist to chiffon and organza suits and frocks. Among the decorative elements, sequined embroideries with a mother of pearl effect appear on maxi pockets giving a graphic appeal to fluid pants and evening mini dresses.
Gowns, where the peacock is printed or appears in a jacquard option, are enriched with fil coupe embroideries adding some sparkle to the lineup and evoking the tones of the aurora borealis.
Twenties’ rigorous shapes inspire the geometric, sculpted Plexiglass clutches showing 3D details and diamond-like closures. The combination of patent and mirrored leather injects a graphic charm into pumps and sandals.
