The evolution of the Albino Teodoro project takes shape in the new Pre Fall 2016 collection.
It commences with diversification: iconic pieces reinterpreted with rich, luxurious fabrics combine with the classic pieces of the Maison style for an uninhibited, transformable silhouette.
The trademark classic style with high fashion accents is enhanced by loosely ethnic and Baroque elements intermingled with eccentric yet elegant prints and patterns.
There's a multicultural core which at times cuts an upright Edwardian figure in its ruched and knotted necklines, or dandy-like with its damasks and wallpapers prints mixed with checked flannels, yet still remains contemporary.
Typical elements such as finely-observed volumes on double cloth or luxurious jacquard outerwear and on the geometric/architectural shapes of the clothes remain the centre of attention where unusual colours like mustard or powder pink, graphic mixes of black&white geometrics or foulard prints are mixed up together.
A sophisticated look is created by layering completely different elements: tuxedo pants with a luxurious jacquard kilt and white poplin or printed twill shirt with a foulard knotted at the neck.
Naturally the possibility of creating a twist on more classic silhouettes is not overlooked, like for example cocktail dresses that go with a bomber jacket in baby alpaca coupled with duchesse satin or lurex jacquard.
The range of materials in detail includes wool double cloth, camel or wool cashmere blend, checked flannel, geometric silk mohair jacquards, figurative floral design jacquards in silk wool and lurex, and wallpaper prints. Radzmir silk and technical cady combine with foulard prints on silk twill or satin crepe. Knitwear in 14 micron cashmere/silk/wool and extra-fine merino jacquard complete the range.
Powder pink, mustard, bordeaux, navy blue and camel shades combine with black and white.
