FALL-WINTER 2018 WOMEN’S COLLECTION
The new collection “Muses of Sortilège” reflects the Patrizia Pepe woman’s dark and anticonformist soul, conjuring up a nocturnal and mysterious atmosphere, illuminated by sparkling shards of lamé which manifest themselves as sudden enchantments, laden with glamour and originality.
The season reaffirms the brand’s codes, defining a magical elegance rich in opposites and contrasts, with mixes of micro and macro forms, over and slim volumes, masculinity and femininity, day and evening wear.
The colour palette is succinct, essential and absolute: Black and Beige blend with the undefined nuance Dark Greige and a touch of Secret Yellow. The intensity of Soft Violet and Blue College is softened by Cloud Rose.
Sophisticated and sensual femininity thrives on unconventional & unexpected combinations. Maxi coats slide over minidresses and vertiginous miniskirts. Pea coats and ample jackets are matched with ‘second skin’ effect boots. Sartorial outfits are revisited with seductive transparencies and high slits which enliven coats and trousers. Free from any standardising rules or diktats, Patrizia Pepe’s enchanted muse nonchalantly wears long evening dresses, right from the early morning.
The art of decorations features masculine micro-patterns on various fabrics, from full Milano to lightweight silk, mixed together or with solid colours for a supremely decisive and modern total look. Magnetic and hyper-refined, style enchantment illuminates tuxedo lapels and coat inners like stardust. Patterns developed from symbols and enigmatic writings are embroidered like small tattoos on evening dresses and knitwear, or printed on georgette and tulle double fabric.
Silk creponne is proposed as a trendy alternative to classic crêpe de chine and ‘everyday lurex’ chalkstripes replace basic wool on more fluid and modern trouser suit volumes, characterised by the iconic “Dua Jacket”, inspired by the brand’s exceptional endorsements.
The Patrizia Pepe ‘old style’ disco jersey is enhanced by asymmetries and mini lengths, enlivened by tuxedo style tails. Furs are enriched by soft and luxurious mongolias which complete evening or ceremonial outfits. Shiny effects embellish velour and suede with micro stud applications and original fur effect mixes. Knitwear is coloured by full tones and hypnotic sparkles, presenting ultralight ribs which frame and unveil the body through plunging necklines on pure yarns, velvety surfaces and noble yak blends, exuding a versatile and metropolitan taste.
“Jeans” is characterised by all-over rips, luminous finishings, urban-rock piercings and frayed fabrics, perfect for that party look. The Super Wow Jeans carry-over range becomes even more contemporary, introducing the new “high-waist & straight leg” cut in Black and Soft Violet tones. The glam-chic impact integrates the denim proposal with an exclusive selection of tops and dresses which enhance the silhouette with important necklines, unveiling the shoulders, for a strictly “by night” look.
