A return to Rome and to the idea of classical beauty . A symbolic place of Rome’s rebirth, the MAXXI Museum (National Museum of 21st Century Arts), designed by Zaha Hadid, whose sinuous, sculptu ral lines , – now a symbol of con temporary Rome – dialogue with Ant onio Grimaldi’s creations .
An inspiration that comes from the 1950s and is linked to atmospheres inextricably united with the sartorial know – how typical of that period, when Rome was a riot of ateliers and handmade craftsmen, and to a lifestyle of rebirth and gentleness , as well as to the affirmation of Italian fashion as an expression of aesthetic sensitivity and craftsmanship.
Thus was bor n a tribute to Rome and to the great lions of Roman haute couture, from Fausto Sarli to Roberto Capucci, from Fernanda Gattinoni to Pino Lancetti: personal icons of mastery for Antonio Grimaldi, who brings to the catwalk a collection inspired by the great Roman couturiers, with lines, shapes and colours revisited according to the stylistic canons of the Antonio Grimaldi Maison.
On the catwalk 33 looks , full of sartorial virtuosity typical of haute couture that are divided between couture suits, evening mi ni – dresses, grand gowns and opulent balloon dresses.
