Elena Mirò’s Spring-Summer 2020 collection held at Palazzo Clerici presents a tribute to elegance, in all its naturalness.
Nature becomes the fil rouge key to the poetic installation that, as in an artist’s garden, welcomes garments of inclusive charm; a concept that in Elena Mirò comes together alternating essential lines with details designed to surprise.
Atelier by Elena Mirò, a place dear to the Italian savoir-faire and to the brand’s expertise, to the premiumness and to the inclusiveness in creating clothes with a perfect fit.
A symbol of collections that, each season, responds in an inclusive way to the needs of contemporary women. With over thirty years of experience, dedication and intuition in the creation of garments: from the initial patterns to the fabric that, impeccably, will give life to it.
And it is precisely on these garments that the students of the Aldo Galli Academy of Fine Arts (Accademia di Belle Arti Aldo Galli) in Como, have painted by hand, evoking the prints inspired by palm leaves and desert dunes. The very same students, involved in the catwalk show, illustrated in real time some garments arranged as statues amongst this reproduction of an atelier with a garden feel.
The balance of authorship does not require excesses. In fact, the creative partnership between Roberto Baracco, Creative Director of Elena Mirò, and Vanessa Incontrada, face and designer of the brand since 2016, is back.
Desert and Colonial, the pictorial tapestry motif often repeated in the collection has also inspired the students of the Aldo Galli Academy of Fine Arts (Accademia di Belle Arti Aldo Galli) in Como; bringing them to reproduce its details (such as large palm leaves) through scattered brushstrokes on collection garments. Natural is also the colour palette, which from chalk, ivory and sand tones touches the most desert tones of green and pink, to reach ebony brown or scorched earth.
Among the dresses - printed or in solid colour - long and fluid lines alternate with light and colourful kaftans, in ethereal gauze fil coupé. A spontaneity that also conquers the outerwear, such as sleeveless trench coats and garments characterized by rope-effect belts, with horn buttons. In knitwear, it’s all about weightlessness (lightness): viscose polo shirts or perforated garments, lifted by fringe decorations. A line that stands out? The kimono sleeve intended not as a reference to the East, but an icon of an essential style worn among dresses, blouses and knitwear. A minimalism in contrast to the metropolitan mood of cargo pants, workers vest and skirts decorated with pockets.
Vanessa Incontrada, face and designer of the brand since 2016, continues: “Through the creative partnership with Roberto Baracco, Creative Director of the brand, we have created an inclusive and feminine collection that combines essential shapes and clean lines to achieve a sophisticated look. The inspiration for this collection comes from nature, the colours of the desert and palm trees, enriched by hand-painted pictorial drawings.”
