Every collection has a story. Slim Aarons was my big inspiration for Spring Summer 2017. From the 1950s until the 1980s, Slim Aarons made a career out of photographing “attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” Timeless Glamour….An American photographer of socialites, jet-setters and celebs. On the pictures everything looks easy, everybody seems careless, the good life, la dolce vita …This is the atmosphere I wanted to capture in my Summer Collection.
The first sub-collection “Capri” is the most glamourous one with short silk kimonos, longer structured kimonos finished off with leather sash belts. The ponchos are stylish, the colours are soft and the materials luxurous . The second collection “Porto Cervo” is more laid back with colourful kimonos and beach kaftans, soft and colourful beach plaids and cool belts with cowboybuckles embellished with studs or with a nice “charro” print.
I hope you’ll like it, Kate
