Return to the inspiration of the Seventies, symbolic of eccentricity and dark fascination: velvet is one of the cult fabrics of Autumn/Winter 17 – 18. Not just for clothes; trousers and jackets, but the soft, regal feel of velvet has also conquered women’s footwear, among the stivaletti, amphibious shoes and ankle boots, where it finds a sophisticated, sensual urban vein. The restatements of this regal fabric are Gothic, aristocratic and Bohemian and lend distinctive character to the contemporary silhouette of the footwear. To break up the shiny, opaque fluidity of the velvet, original combinations can be made with silk, organza and crepe de chine: the result is a naughty and hyper-feminine mix. Black and deep blue are among the most sought after colours, for a glamorous, sexy look, in perfect Lady noir style. It is difficult to resist the temptation of the vintage, still refined touch of this soft fabric, which accepts a mix of various colours and offers a highly original, fascinating powdery palette. Playing games with colours and fantasy, mixing light and dark tints for elegant dressing.
