Atos Lombardini - MFW - Freedom and Feminininty

Freedom and femininity have not always gone hand-in-hand in the history of the fashion industry, but at ATOS LOMBARDINI’s Spring/Summer 2016 main collection at Milan Fashion Week, the two themes work together in perfect union. _MG_7620

The pieces are light and the shapes are soft and romantic, with almost transparent materials seductively showing the body in a way that is sensual but subtle.

The collection is made up of a selection of ultra-feminine dresses and takes as its first inspiration in lightness hence the butterfly,  which adorn  the pieces together with floral details,  t-shirts with butterfly patches, salopettes re-invented by the addition of large tulle skirts, are also key . Their second inspiration comes from Gypsy styles and Morocco and can be found on foulard prints patchworks on mini dresses and peasant  sleeves. Crochet trims complete the story.

Away from their staple whites the collection uses  a lively colour palette of strawberry reds, intense caramels and turquoise, and is embellished with multi-coloured ropes and tassels, lace details and soft suede accessories._MG_7626

I was really happy to meet the two sisters behind the family label Alessandra and Elena Lombardi and who better to model their Summer collection they looked gorgeous !
