“Carolina Herrera meets Axl Rose,” this is how Puglisi describes his Fausto Puglisi spring/summer 2014 collection, unveiled at Milan Fashion Week. The impressions and the ideas connected with this line are quite diverse. However, one thing is for certain, this can be a promising start for Puglisi, for whom this was the first experience of representing his own runway show.
The main conceptual cornerstone of the Fausto Puglisi spring/summer 2014 collection was the contradiction of two styles: sporty, biker-resembling motives on the one hand and glamorous party dress styles on the other. Whether it sounds appealing to you or not, dear fashionisers, only you are to decide it after looking through the catwalk photos and getting acquainted with all the details. Nevertheless, we think you will love this collection.
The main means of creating the first part of the primarily chosen idea is leather, turning up via various embodiments, starting from the smallest particles put on the scale and reaching the biggest ones. Namely we find leather used on belts and saddle maker’s straps that are used to create some bra-like pieces, further expanding to the level of biker jackets, which also carried some beadwork elements (probably that was the part of the stylish mishmash with the jackets).
Coming to the part of cute looks, we find chic brought to life knee, mini and floor length dresses, carrying bald openings and deep V-cuts, even in case of some shirts, and also at times being covered with tropical prints of red, golden shades, blue but never green. These motives are also expressed through beadwork, when, for example, making the same prints via beads rather than just prints.
The principles of combining the colors are also very interesting and quite eye-catching. Thus, black is chosen as the primary background for the pieces, while being paired with barn red, sunny yellow, rose and light blue. Summing up the impressions, we can clearly notice the individuality of the Fausto Puglisi spring/summer 2014 collection, and the uniqueness of it as a whole. Waiting with great interest to see the further transformations by Fausto Puglisi.
