A storm of flowers: the allegory of balance that breaks down and reassembles by designing ever new emotional landscapes.
The Luisa Beccaria woman for autumn / winter 2023-2024 embodies the dialogue between the ideal and the everyday, the desire for romanticism and the will for independence. She is a force of nature, who freely reinterprets and mixes different inspirations, from the sporty wardrobe to more swinging ideas, remaining faithful to the brand’s iconic ultra-feminine style.
Material textures such as corduroy (also printed), wool and flannel alternate with impalpable chiffon and dévoré silk, giving way to technical fabrics for very warm duvets and metallic jersey with a luminous weave. The silhouettes play with volumes, with oversized touches that contrast the more slippery and adherent shapes; lengths range from maxi to mini.
Chains and showers of blossoms embellish flounced dresses in stretch wool combined with balaclavas, for the day. The intense red trousers with soft lines are completed with an oversized redingote with dropped shoulders cinched at the waist with high ton sur ton belts. The same is transformed into a minidress in very soft baby blue suede. The shirtdress studded with little roses is worn over the printed turtleneck, while the monochrome jersey blouse becomes couture with tailored ribbing and piping.
For the evening, the petal and blossom print transfers onto black velvet in the form of minute embroidery or is completely transformed and becomes a sensual, voluptuous pansy. Metallic flashes light up mermaid dresses covered in cascades of degradé sequins, alternating with other body-hugging dévoré velvets.
To face the storm – meteorological and metaphorical – the outerwear is very hot: for the evening maxicoat in solid color mohair (white, red, baby blue), for the day egg-shaped bomber jacket with hood, also in a gilet version.
The color palette takes up entirely the tones of Giorgione’s enigmatic Tempesta. Cream and ivory give way to moss greens, blue-greens, teals and turquoises, hot pink shades of red and burgundy, deep touches of black, flashes of bronze and the gray-blue nuances of a winter mountain sky, between crystalline clarity and tones of the storm.
