It can happen only during a Fashion Week! It is a phrase that I heard a lot of times, but I now understand what it means… in my small world of lazy Sunday mornings- in bed until late afternoon, having an invitation for 9am is for sure challenging. But it was Fashion Week and the Massimo Rebecchi show so I decided it was worth an early Sunday morning wake up. I did my best to appear fresh and well rested and I understand that the result wasn’t perfect, but the show was absolutely to-die-for; the location – Accademia di Brera – and the VIP parterre was the icing on the cake!
In the Massimo Rebecchi SS15 collection you can find all the Massimo Rebecchi ingredients (silk, prints, colors), but mixed up with new elements (for example: dark denim and pop art colors and geometry) to create a completely new effect. And this effect reminded of the ’60s allure when pop art met fashion for new unexpected colors and patterns creating a completely new approach to fashion (anyone thinking of Yves Saint Laurent and his Mondrian dress?). But now the modern key is the tri-dimension: dresses and blouses have new forms and new graphics, and there is a blossoming of colors from pastels to color-block- mixed with more classic black and white.
But there are also the ’70s in this Massimo Rebecchi SS15 collection: strong colors mixed (light blue with red, yellow and red) and new asymmetric forms for long silk dresses and playsuits, along with flower mixes and jacquard. Plus a little wink to the ’90s sporty style with a new version of gym chic touched by new modern essential lines.
All these different inspirations found a place in an always recognizable Rebecchi’s style, where the lightness of materials and of the forms make him one of my favorites as always.
I wore Topshop navy silk blouse and my new beautiful handmade statement necklace from my summer trip to Singapore.
