Piccione Piccione's flirty and feminine line
Piccione Piccione took a walk on the feminine side of life for its Autumn/Winter 16 collection.
Italian designer Salvatore Piccione presented an ultra girly line to close Milan Fashion Week on Monday (29Feb16), full of bright colours, bold prints and embroidery of hearts, flowers and balloons.
Salvatore had previously revealed the inspiration behind the pieces was a book called Brida by Paulo Coelho, which documents a woman's spiritual journey.
“Through this collection, I wanted to express an optimistic message - that life is beautiful,” he told WWD.
He certainly achieved this with garments such as a flamboyant pink, black, red and pale blue mini-dress featuring sheer red long sleeves. To add to the quirk of the outfit, the model had a ruffled pink choker on and pointed black dolly shoes.
Another girl's outfit wouldn't have looked out of place on a Barbie, as it featured a baby pink woollen jacket with a red heart embroidery on the front, paired with hot pink trousers.
There were more urban, arty items too, like a shirt midi-dress which featured a collar and buttoned up sleeves, boasting red hearts, pink checks and black squares.
One aspect that was present throughout was how fitting and flattering each design was, with tailored looks making an appearance as well in the form of a red trouser suit and a structured patterned mini-skirt. However, one model which arguably stood out from the masses was a brunette wearing the same sheer red blouse paired with the multicoloured dress mentioned above, but with nothing over the top. Her breasts were on full display under the top and her high-waisted midi-dress was adorned with flowers.
Paris Fashion Week is now set to begin, as Tuesday (01Mar16) sees the likes of Anthony Vaccarello and Koche showing off their new lines.
