Tintoretto 2020: Icons Never Go Out Of Style
Womenswear Capsule Collection
Who would the Dogaressa be today, in a complex, broken, difficult to read and worthless contemporaneity?
The collection is based on 5 ICONS of CONTEMPORANEITY and is dedicated to Donatella Versace.
The collection dresses a militant, remarkable woman who is not afraid to choose a troublesome battle.
A woman who fights for the environment, for LGBT rights, for civil and refugees rights.
A woman who fights against every barrier, fear and ignorance.
A star, with an extraordinary and complex personality. A woman who raises her voice and states what she thinks.
A feminist and proud woman, capable of enduring her mistakes and pains openly, without losing any dignity.
The collection is based on a few simple lines that we keep finding throughout.
1) Power Dressing and geometric shoulders
Coats, trench coats and knitwear feature oversized shoulders and geometric cuts, a direct legacy of “Power Dressing”.
2) The narrow waist and the sinuosity of the 1950s
Direct legacy of the bodice effect, the sinuosity and incredible elegance of a woman from the Fifties’ who lived through history. A proud sign of pure femininity and seduction.
Everything is printed, everything is graphic, every bit of fabric tells a story, it is a poster, it is a statement.
