Gorgeous and luxurious 1980’s in America and Helmut Newton’s significant photos were the main inspiration for Elisabetta Franchi’s
new spring-summer 2017 collection. Her woman is sensual and impressive, a tiny bit provocative, yet feminine. She wears “dress to impress” and stays true to herself.
The collection is made with Hollywood glamour of Dynasty and Dallas soup operas epoch. Long embroidered dresses are made for perfect divas who love to play with public and enjoy the lights of soffits. The whole thing is mixed with 1980’s pop-rock “Like a virgin” spirit.
Fluid lines are contrasted by sculptural pieces. Ruffles make a bright accent on sleeves and shoulders. Feminine bodies are highlighted by mermaid skirts, bodysuits and micro tops, hight-waisted trousers with over-the-top palazzo and bell-bottoms also underscore the dignity of the female body – it’s charm and sexuality.
The spring-summer color palette in the full of light and fresh shades with aquamarine and gold domination.
Animal prints are a must for Elisabetta Franchi. This time the leopard print turns back on the runway with lamé details. These lamé details were also featured on jackets an oversized cardigans.
Accessories are very important in Elisabetta Franchi’s story too. Timeless hight-heels and high sandals accentuate the ankles and promote female sensuality. Over-the-top jewels, golden chains, maxi stress and bold belts are the spring-summer must-haves!
