ANTONIO GRIMALDI Haute Couture SS17 : an ode to passionate LOVE


Among the new designers who have paraded during this parisian week of Haute Couture, there is one that must be absolutely remembered : Antonio Grimaldi.

This Italian was a guest member of the Official Haute Couture Calendar thanks to the sponsorship of Riccardo Tisci, artistic director of Givenchy having seen in him a true talent.


For his collection, Antonio Grimaldi has worked on the love sentiment obsession, on this ideal Love, real or dreamed, source of happiness or suffering, which has haunted man since the dawn of time. This is how the couturier chose the name of his collection Aphrodite, Greek goddess of beauty and love.

It is a sensual, passionate and emotional collection, full of emotion that was presented on January 26, with silhouettes of profane goddesses as descended from the skies.

The designer built a collection full of symbols like the embroidered heart, both House logo and ultimate symbol of Love.

But Antonio Grimaldi has worked this feeling through a new way away from the usual romanticism. They are warriors Amazons fearing neither time nor love, who showed in Paris in the Imperial Salon of the Westin Hotel.

The dresses, inspired by Greco-Roman architecture, reveal a formidable work on geometric constructions, volumes, and magical veiled transparency effects.

The collection proposes to see the aesthetics passed through our contemporary glasses with asymmetrical cuts and cuts, dresses in metallic embroidery, draped or pleated and studded leather panties.

The chiffon dresses, metallic georgette, silk crepe, jacquard cut yarn have declined the colors of Love passing from the shades of tender pink to a passionate red.

The message is clear: don’t be afraid of love!
