If it’s not the 60s with their fabulous mod fashion, or the 40s with their military influences that read severe silhouettes, than it must be the 80s, keen on emphasizing power dressing and the exaggerated shapes, one of the three most thoroughly explored decades during this fashion week season and the key inspiration for Krizia’s fall / winter 2013 collection.
The modern take on the early eighties resulted in a line up that would make any of Mariuccia Mandelli’s lady clients, admirers or long-time devotees proud and eager to put on the armour-like garments, designed as to come one with high-levels of confidence and a tough attitude. Slim leather pants, biker jackets with oversized shoulders and coats featuring lady-like silhouettes and clean lines, were the clothes that the designer herself envisioned as to fit ““a proud, feisty woman who is prepared to defend the fragility hidden beneath her symbolic armor.”
For night, the same feisty woman is ready to put on a bold dress, sometime injected with the sensuality of a deep V-neckline cut, other times softened by the sweeping pleats adorning the lightest fabrics. Either daring, edgy or showcasing her vulnerability, the Krizia woman is more than ready to brave the upcoming seasons of cold in full style.
