Aquilano.Rimondi - Spring/Summer Show 2018 in Milan (with interview)
Designers : tommaso aquilano and roberto rimondicollection: multiple inspirations including for miro, work on colours and graphics. a silhouette which unites fluidity and body hugging clothes. the white shirt a real signature of the label is reinterpreted in loose volumes. stripes and the aquilano.rimondi logo come back as a recurring feature. to note: the patent leather gathered with cord. the high waist of the pencil skirts and the trousers with coloured lateral bands, the fishnet skirt adorned with metallic beading. the pleats which are superimposed onto strips. the shoes with geometric heels. a mixed collection with a sport and urban feel, careful cuts and listening to the evolution of society. tommaso aquilano : the point of view is the power of women, the point of view is the dynamism of women, going outside of the genders. this is what emma watson was saying during her speech at the un. in this moment we’re in the middle of reclaiming our identity and emma watson is a bit of inspiration, like juan miro for this collection. we’ve dressed her in the past and now we think back to her, we’ve found the key which is going to build the idea of the collection. roberto rimondi : she has the clear identity of an elder woman but she’s young and that’s what we think is so interesting. this is what we say each season, women are ahead of fashion. tommaso aquilano : we have to go before, look to the future, also look at what’s in the present, that’s why in the collection there are very feminine silhouettes with cotton skirts, really very simple, very comfortable in jersey, very feminine. at the same time, our identity is italian sartorial style revisited, there are very tight cuts on the body, it becomes very body conscious with very graphic stripes, white and black. roberto rimondi : and also the shirt, because we’ve taken the dna of aquilano.rimondi for summer, it’s the white shirt. music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information).
