JASMINE RICE AND SUMMER RAIN, SPRING/SUMMER 15 CONCOCTS A DISTINCTLY INDOCHINE STORY. WOMEN WEARING CHINOISERIE SILKS OF FAR REACHING LANDS IN HUMID CLIMATES IS A BEAUTIFUL IMAGE TO INSPIRE A SEASON, AND A TRIP AWAY.
Gucci experiments with colourful florals in silks, bringing to mind the tailors of 1940’s Hanoi. Marni explores an Asian sociology with brightly painted flowers on black backgrounds, a fond memory of 1980’s chintzy Asian pacific tourism. Consuelo Castiglioni develops the idea throughout the collection with a breathtaking result. A crisp shaped, round-shouldered coat in embroidery, mimicking lush greens of a beautiful Laos’s jungle or the asymmetrical skirt reminiscent of the silk cotton trees and strangling figs of Cambodia. Floral prints although reliably cyclical in seasons, are rarely this exotic, with this Spring/ Summer a visual translation of a landscape, culture, and its influence on fashion.
