The enchanting atmosphere of Fall/Winter 2016
Fantasy will be one of the prevailing moods of the next fall/winter season. A woman is lost in a reverie, a veritable, colourful and lively “Enchanted Wonderland”, like the woman of Valentino. Volcanoes, stars and floral patterns in bright colours represent this theme in various fabrics, such as chiffon, macramé and leather. But if in this case fantasy is seen as a voyage to fantastic, faraway worlds (Jamaica, Japan, Andy Warhol’s factory…), when it comes to Dolce & Gabbana, women are transported to a fairytale world, a “Fabulous Fantasy” where their dreams of being princesses become a reality. It is a contemporary fairytale, though: the modern princess does wear dreamy gowns and crystal shoes, but also blazers inspired by princes’ uniforms and bags reminiscing of trunks.
The new season makes us travel through time and collective imagination, in a fantastic daydream where “they lived happily ever after”.
