Cassiopea is the new 2021 collection by the designer Eleonora Altamore which takes its name from a star. She affirms the stylist: “The stars give us a romantic and mysterious vision, bright, distant, they accompany our life path, unattainable, they give us terrestrial and extraterrestrial dreams and imaginations”.
The Fashion Designer is inspired by the Sicilian futurists of the early twentieth century and in particular by the painting of the artist Giovanni Varvaro “The man of the stars”. He designs his creations drawing from the same colors, from geometric shapes and, like the “Man of the stars” of the work that hovers towards the sky among the luminous stars, his clothes also seem to float in the cosmos sensually wrapped in female bodies, projecting luminous sparkles, colors and shapes sculpted as if they were engraved in a multiplication table with a symmetrical matrix.
Cassiopea, a futurist conceptual collection, is the bearer of a message that goes beyond the earthly dimension, an essential link between past, present and sweeping into the future. It is precisely on the theme of the future with the frenetic conquest of space, the exploration of the planets, the creative vision of this collection is projected through the art of futurism.
Eleonora Altamore designed this collection during the lockdown. In a suspended time and an uncertain future, her clothes are a hymn of positivity, of hope, of change towards a better world where each of us can find normality as soon as possible and return to life.
Each dress and accessory of the Cassiopea Collection has the name of a different star. Very special bags are combined with each outfit. Her dresses with original lines are refined and elegant at the same time. Her style is unmistakable, a refined, eccentric but classy mood, for a woman who wants to stand out, who has character, independent, dreamer and romantic, who never loses sight of her femininity.
