We are about to say goodbye to the Milan fashion week, that appointment that we have been following for you with passion for years telling you secrets and trends. This year we had look at the collections from afar, but we will try to talk about them with the same intensity. Laura Biagiotti certainly deserves to open the dance, and it is not just a saying.
Lavinia Biagiotti Cigna brought the history of the maison to Ara Pacis accompanied by the sinuous and delicate dance of Eleonora Abbagnato surrounded by six other étoiles of the Rome Opera House. Two arts that come together and none is second to the other: it is an elevated moment of undisputed artistic-creative sacredness.
The Ara Pacis is much more than a background: it is a declaration of love to nature and its incessant explosion recalled in the colors of the collection that blend with the monument and what it represents. The Ara Pacis is a piece of history of the Biagiotti family and celebrating it in such an unstable moment makes it an emblem. The woman who walks the runway for Laura Biagiotti’s Fall Winter 2021/22 collection is an elegant and attentive citizen who retains a unique sensibility behind the rigor of her well-matched garments.
The recycled cashmere of knitted dresses, blazers without lapels, double coats and godet skirts with an elegant and essential style greet the bag, with the LB logo that becomes a handle, proposed in a mini and trendy version or larger to meet the needs.Laura Biagiotti’s Fall Winter 2021/22 collection is embellished with unique details that tell stories of know-how that updates itself and last over time. Friezes and swirls of acanthus woven on ribbed knit dresses and large coats, handmade embroideries of scaramazza pearls and points of light: everything expresses accuracy and calm, the superpower of knowing how to hide the incredible in the discreet. Laura Biagiotti has always done it and continues to build her story on recognizable footsteps imprinted on new roads.
A particular atmosphere, however, can be attributed to this Fall Winter 2021/2022 collection, everything is even more calm and delicate, yet the message is direct and the visual impact is strong. Our favorite pieces? The long milky-white alpaca cloaks that make the modern woman a sacred creature, a vestal of modernity entrusted by Laura Biagiotti with the mission of caressing the world, of coloring it with its gentlest tones to frame it and leave it protagonist of history .A story that must be faced with strength and respect, delicacy and determination. At this moment, reducing everything to the garments and their final image is an understatement. We need to recognize the work, the history, the interpretation of tomorrow starting from the origins of yesterday. Take a myth, a sensation and tell it this time on video and who knows until when.
By doing fashion and business, you live an experience in which you perceive the changes in society, often orienting them. Hence our responsibility towards the present, as well as the future, and the need to interpret a sustainable message made up of people, a bond with the territory, with art, culture and beauty. Our Age of Women tells, in four episodes, the female role in its fullest expression, through an unprecedented dialogue between fashion and the city, between women, clothes and the body. In dressing we look for a behavior that satisfies us made of intrinsic value, comfort and long life. Biagiotti fashion tells a thought that is both new and infinite at the same time. ”
