For the Spring/Summer 2016 collection, Elena Ghisellini presents “Natural Harmony”, a collection that meshes apparently irreconcilable elements to evoke a potent creative concept: contrasts generate beauty.
The vision of the designer is influenced by abstract art and the work of masters of kinetic and optical art, such as Fontana and Casalonga. She mingles natural and emotional elements with rational aspects to create graphic and instinctively dynamic effects. The colours and atmospheres of Jamaica encounter the contemporary and linear design that has always characterised the style of the brand.
A product of high quality – hand-crafted, innovative and flaunting unique style – confirms that the work and the approach of Elena Ghisellini is based on a vision rooted in the productive tradition of Made in Italy, but projected into the present.
The bags are proposed in exclusive, matt skins which are almost always layered and enhanced by metallic plates. The colour palette ranges over warm and natural hues as well as hi-tech nuances: yellow green, red and milk recall the earth; black, silver and electric blue look to the future.
The collection presents three new models: one for daytime and two for the evening. The Smart Tote Miky is a casual and versatile bag of perfect proportions that adapts easily to the female body. It is made in grained leather printed with the exclusive “graphic tiger” design.
The Felina Box is the metal minaudière, an evolution of the brand’s iconic bag. The last new entry of the season, Funny Face, is a small clutch minibag /smartphone holder which, through an artful use of exclusive-design patchwork and the juxtaposition of different colours and materials, recalls the expression of a winking look.
