Luisa Beccaria MFW Spring 2015
"I wanted to reference the languid atmosphere of a boudoir, the sensuality of the exquisite antique lingerie, yet in a modern and sophisticated way," Beccaria said backstage, where Lucilla, one of her daughters, was helping her mother navigate the preshow mayhem. Boudoir and cloisters don’t seem to go hand in hand, yet the collection had a youthful, bohemian spirit, sweet but not cloying. Silhouettes were fluid and breezy, and the lingerie theme was played tastefully, as in a see-through long black chemise in silk mesh paired with a satin bodice, or in a pink robe de chambre in finely pleated chiffon decorated with a fragile entredeux lace. Intricate botanical embroideries were abundant in bustiers and in bias-cut slipdresses in flowery prints. And the sportswear theme (surprise!) crept up discreetly: Overcoats in metallic organza were inspired by a parka shape and thrown over ballerina dresses in airy mille-feuille tulle. | via Style
