The charm of Laura Biagiotti with Roman Reinassance entered a still hot and sultry Rome that was about to introduce a September edition of its Haute Couture Fashion Week.
Presented with a fashion show for a select few due to Covid rules, the Roman Reinassance Spring Summer 2021 collection made Piazza Campidoglio an evocative and unforgettable catwalk, especially because Laura Biagiotti chose the capital for the first time after 55 years of activity. Definitely an important event that brings with it messages, meanings and a new union that also represents a new approach by women to fashion. Laura Biagiotti has always represented class and savoir fare but also modernity: the brand that represents Italian style in the world with its interesting cultural and temporal contaminations has shown to be in step with the times once again.
The world changes and with it the needs of a woman who becomes more aware, like an eternally beautiful Rome that continues to live the future by looking at its spectacular past. For this Spring Summer 2021 Laura Biagiotti thinks of a renaissance and a rebirth, as if the city and her woman flourished together in a new, even brighter light. This is demonstrated by the Swarovski crystals on which profiles of Roman statues are outlined, in a summary of classicism that lights up the future. There is so much white that even in its most geometric and rigorous forms it softens with hints of flowers, to greet the next summer. Colors blow up, standing out decisively next to the whiteness of the Roman marble statues and the geometric perfection of its monuments.
Each color, from orange, to fuchsia, to green, to blue, outlines the profile of a strong and determined woman who wears trousers, oversized jackets and sensual and elegant suits. The lines soften on the soft line dresses with prints. A tribute to Michelangelo and Piazza Campidoglio is imprinted on the essential and contemporary wedding dress followed by a very light dance by the iconic Anna Cleveland.The accessories carry the iconic logo that blends perfectly with the geometries of the collection. The event ended with a performance by Eleonora Abbagnato who presented a choreography designed for the occasion on the notes of Ennio Morricone together with five dancers from the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.
