Structure, romanticism and lightness features in the Spring/Summer 2016 high fashion collection by Luigi Borbone, presented at Rome during Altaroma, inspired by Orlando – the film by Sally Potter, interpreted by the iconic Tilda Swinton – and the myth of Persephone. It’s a successful melting-pot – emphasized by the styling of bright Concetta D’ Angelo – made of transparencies, light sporty-chic references, revisited in a romantic way, lace, silk, enriched by Swarovski crystals, light colors (as green, pink, sugar paper) along with blue and many lines reinterpreting the early Nineties, Fifties, Seventies and Eighties – as it is evidenced by the use of structures from Eighteenth century as the pannier -, pay homage to the silhouette and contemporary elegance.

Struttura, romanticismo e levità sono i protagonisti della collezione haute couture primavera/estate 2016 di Luigi Borbone, presentata a Roma in occasione di Altaroma, che si ispira a Orlando – la pellicola di Sally Potter interpretata dall’ iconica Tilda Swinton – e al mito di Persefone. Un felice melting-pot – enfatizzato dallo styling della brillante Concetta D’ Angelo – fatto di trasparenze, lievi riferimenti sporty-chic, rivisitati in chiave romantica pizzo, seta, arricchita da cristalli Swarovski, colori tenui (quali verde, rosa, carta da zucchero) unitamente al blu e una pluralità di linee che reinterpretano i primi anni del Novecento, gli anni ’50, ’70 e ’80 – come si evince dall’ uso di strutture settecentesche quali il panier -, rendono omaggio alla silhouette ed alla femminilità contemporanea.
