Inside the Fortezza da Basso, Pitti W embodies a sophisticated version of fashion, interpreting a unique and trendy woman’s wardrobe – with previews, capsules, installations and special settings –while simultaneously integrating the Pitti Uomo universe and lifestyle. In line with the latest vogue, Pitti Wthinks ahead by selecting an exclusive range of international brands to present at a preview of glamorous and innovative collections for the 2015-16 autumn/winter season. Among the novelties in the women’s collection an even larger space is dedicated to accessories which have become a must in a woman’s collection, combining raw materials and precious stones in an artful balance of form and function.
The classical elements of women’s outfits are reinterpreted with a metro-modern twist and a knowing mix of fabric and colour, mirroring the lifestyle of active women on the lookout for unique pieces. This season too will be showcasing reversible coats and unlined outwear. Voluminous dresses and skirts are in full swing, while t-shirts and sweatshirts are embellished with matelassé embroidery, both plain and with geometrical quilting. Blacks, greys, dark blues and browns combined with gaudy hues of light blue, pink and bright yellow are all the rage. Volumes and shapes are disassembled to create enveloping coats and oversized garments in a raw cut tailoring style, both for trousers and jackets.
The trend at Pitti Woman this year is a genderless fusion of the male and female worlds.
