In a city almost submerged by the sea, a beautiful courtesan flees and takes refuge in the chandeliers of one of the highest domes of a Venetian church, amid architecture and rich marquetry inlays. Beneath her feet a mirror of water reflects the precious details of her light and shiny dress.
I Giardini di Venezia Spring-Summer 2016 collection by the young fashion designer Concetta Maccarone is a hymn to the lightness and brightness of the woman. Dresses and foulards come alive thanks to the high accuracy of the details.
Concept high fashion brand mirrors the taste and the attention to details that come from the world of theatre and scenic design, key elements of the young designer artistic background.
The polychrome patterns on pure silk draw intarsia along with delicate and refined ombre effects, revoking the architectures and the paintings of the sixteenth-century Venetian school. Green is referred to as the key colour of the entire collection, featuring a specific tone of marine green, the Venetian green, ideal for sophisticated and feminine dresses.
