Renato Balestra Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2016-2017

Blue, My Love
A collection dedicated to the multiple shades of blue, with a special focus on Balestra Blue, the Maison’s signature nuance, culminating in deep midnight blue enriched with a pale “ice”.
Light, flowing fabrics emphasise the contrast of light and shadow through a glossy/matt effect.
Plissé often creates a mother-of-pearl effect of great visual impact.
Light touches of sheerness make the more sophisticated models sexy and interesting, with “chain” embroidery in the same fabric. New this season: python skin highlighted with exquisite embroidery gives sinuous grace to the silhouette.
A number of the formal evening models are enriched by quilted taffetà blousons with tonal swarovski crystals.
The regal and sumptuous bride has a billowing organza cloak embroidered with pearlescent flowers, ending the collection like a beautiful fairytale.
