Frida Kahlo’ s poetics in the new SS 2018 Angelo Marani collection
“ I’ve always considered fashion creativity paired with artistic activity – says the designer Giulia Marani- so I searched in Frida Kahlo’s art outstanding themes for the Angelo Marani SS 18 collection”. A new way of reading of the burning Mexican atmosphere which shows up in the gorgeous colors of the dresses and in the choice highly-appealing fabrics.
Hibiscus, papaya, azulejos, vibrant colours for the shiny varnished cotton macrame lace , which appears on long petticoat dresses with asymmetric rouches or on the biker jacket matching with the skirt.
Bouganvillea for the long, shiny-sequined dress and sensual transparencies made with intarsia in polka-dotted satin and tulle.
Frida Kahlo’s eccentricity on the printed dresses made with light and colourful scarves, featuring intarsia in two-coloured shiny lace .
The Mexican hint of flowers is reinterpreted on the black and white optical dress with leather-like glazes.
Colonial influence on tropical bird feathers in nocturnal arrangement on the precious garment in intarsia of varnished black lace.
Oversize waistcoat with pearl details, tops in rhinestone and stud net light up the collection while bustier hooks become sexy trimmings on dresses.
