The court of Villa Reale is covered with petals on the occasion of the Luisa Beccaria fashion show for the Spring Summer 2018, perhaps a recall to the sicilian traditions and therefore to love and family but also a perfect stage that seems to be part of the collection.
“Like a flower” delicate, changeable with delicate tones will be the woman who will dress Beccaria for next summer, and floral are the details that cover light clothes, sleeves, bodys and skirts. The chosen materials are highly tailor made but at the same time light and soft lines: cotton sangallo, organza fil coupe, faded tulle, macramè lace and silk carvings. The palette remembers the colors of a flowering field in the spring, from the pink powder coming to a soft red, the blue, the white, the yellow sorbet, a light green tone and finally the blue of the night sky, summer.
Skirts are long and large, never exessive transparencies that give a touch of bon ton as only the Beccaria can do, light volant, tight dresses that elegantly highlight the silhouette, for evening light tulle dresses with light tones, since they must be the petal carved in silk, or with the blue contrast of the blue navy. In addition to floral details, dots and vertical rows return to dresses and skirts.
The accessories are one with the dresses: ton sur ton straps that mark the waistline, minimal bijoux and golden dragonflies in the hair. The shoes are part of the exclusive capsule collection made in collaboration with Racine Carrèe: ankle flats, five-heel muffs, stiletto sandals and mini-fringed slippers, each of them recalling the colors, materials and themes of the collection.
The LùBar is the backstage of fashion show, Beccaria’s family bistrot, located right in the court of Villa Reale, also a symbol of the family reunion, which gave birth to this four-handed collection together with her daughter Lucilla, joining tradition and innovation, classicism in the fabrics and modernity in detail.
