Elisabetta Franchi for SS21
The power of nature as a rebirth and a real fresh start is the common thread of the Spring/Summer 2021 collection by Elisabetta Franchi. The colours of spring dress the class and delicacy of an aristocratic woman, a refined and seductive but aware woman: a woman who chooses.
Elegant dresses, being the reflection of homes of yesteryear, cross the border of reality exploring shapes and colours that create a modern wardrobe with super classic details, which is capable of transmitting visions and memories, new desires and timeless values inherited. The woman by Elisabetta Franchi in this new collection walks the runway with iconic garments that embody the style codes of the Maison in the unmistakable model-making and in the scrupulous attention to quality through continuous research. The dialogue with nature inspires the colour palette, where lavender, the flagship colour and emblem of a dreamy and irrefutably feminine woman, is combined with neutral shades such as butter, lime, powder and rose gold, with some touches of amaranth. Floral patterns reveal harmonious garments capable of bewitching with their polite and luminous charm, ranging from lace and tulle dresses with silhouettes defined by more structured volumes, rhythmic flounces and ruffles, which remind of the light petals of a flower. The finest workmanship gives the sleeves the effect of a three- dimensional flower, which also materialises on dresses and tops featuring soft and never impudent lines. Evening dresses on chiffon bases, all-over embroidery of iridescent sequins and tulle express the Maison's mastery. Precious yarns interweave to create couture textures and volumes, while clouds of impalpably light ottoman wrap an iconic and timeless woman. The grand finale is an explosion of maxi skirts and snow-white shirts: the rigour of aristocracy, refinement and modesty is revisited and shattered by the energetic beauty and enchantment of a carousel of young girls in bloom.
