“Since there’s no hope I ever shall return
to Tuscany, my little song,
Go for me, light and swift, along
To where my lady dwells”
Guido Cavalcanti, Rime, Since there’s no hope I ever shall return
* tr. Anthony Mortimer, 2010
INSPIRATION: sitting on the beach observing the lake, the clouds run by the wind and the waves crash on the sand; the clothes utterly original, do not reinterpret the archive but the features of the Papini style.
Freshness, romance, and femininity are reinterpreted at the highest level. Architectural structures have been deconstructed with surprising results. The iconic bows take on macro-decorative proportions.
VOLUMES: whether they are ball gowns, simple wedding dresses with an eccentric touch or extremely fluid bridal gowns, everything is characterized by extreme lightness. The fluttering movement of the skirts contrasts with the constructions of the bodices which have been manufactured with innovative techniques.
THE CLOUDS: delicate wedding dresses with important volumes. Deconstructed constructions. Precious bodices with new stratifications. Absolute lightness for gowns that fluctuate with the slightest movement. New internal structures give the skirts a great delicacy.
THE WAVES: structured but very light gowns. Waves create asymmetrical swirls that embrace the whole dress. Clean lines made unique by airy volumes and unforeseen asymmetries.
THE WIND: wedding dresses that are absolutely weightless but incredibly constructed. Luxurious skirts. Delicately draped and embroidered bodices. Airy and clean lines, romance and delicacy.
MATERIAL: silk mikado, gazar, impalpable organza, chiffon, jacquard, chantilly laces, voile, crepon double satin, embroidered tulle, rebrodè laces.
Overlays, patchworks of different fabrics, contrasts that give a contemporary touch to every single gown.
All the bridal styles of the Elements Collection start from the oval and the circle. Everything aims at the search for lightness, for the perfect line and movement.
The collection includes five “couture” wedding dresses that remain faithful to the identity of the brand, enhancing the characteristics of craftsmanship and quality.
Extreme preciousness, incredibly complex constructions, huge but inconsistent volumes.
Three “jewel” accessories complete and make this capsule even more special.
“Take life lightly, for lightness is not superficiality,
but gliding above things, not having weights on your heart”
