CONCEPT AND MEANING OF ROSEANNA
ROSEANNA IS THE COMBINATION OF THE TWO DESIGNER’S SURNAMES. IT EMBODIES THE JUXTAPOSITION OF THEIR PERSONALITIES, STYLES AND REFERENCE POINTS, AS WELL AS THE FRIENDSHIP THAT UNIFIES THEM. ROSEANNA OFFERS A COMPLETE WARDROBE WITH A NONCHALANT-REFINED STYLE. THE SELECTION OF BEAUTIFUL MATERIALS, THE DETAIL, AND QUALITY TRIMMINGS, WHICH PUNCTUATE EACH PIECE, ARE AT THE CENTER
This season’s collection is an invitation to travel... It offers an urban wardrobe, with a distinct style, and is completed by a swimwear collection. Strong and fresh, our trip to Brasil serves as the inspiration for the collection. The “Ipanema” jacquards, the “Teresa” lace, and the “Tiger” print, all echo Copacabana’s narrow alleyways, and Rio’s architecture. The “Paraty” knitwear and the “Coco” and “Pardiero” cotton tweeds evoke the hand made treasures of indigenous tribes. The exclusive “Palm” and “Neon” prints bring to mind Brasil’s lush vegetation. Cobalt and lagoon coloured corduroys, have been distressed by hand, and feel sun-worn, while “Rio”, a jacquard in a silk and lurex blend, dresses up the collection with class. “Sofa”, the printed cotton canvas, reflects the local tapestries. The soft cotton of “Sunset” and “Nuage” remind emulate Arpador’s sunsets. “Mendes”, a camouflage print for mid-season, for braving the storms of Lopes Mendes on Ilha Grande. “Tiger”-printed emerald green leather, and an exotic garden printed lambskin bring together our collection of printed leathers for the season.
