Francesco Scognamiglio’s fall 2013 creations don’t just dress the body but they express real emotions. The famous designer’s fall 2013 collection unveiled at Milan Fashion Week had as main source of inspiration Veronica Lake’s ‘Sullivan’s Travels’. There is a particular elegance and attitude specific to Scognamiglio’s designs that can be spotted in each of his lines. “Elegance and beauty are complementary components of attitude. It includes style and aesthetics. It’s a way of being,” Francesco Scognamiglio explained in an interview with NSSMAG.
For the upcoming cold-weather season, the worldwide renowned designer proposes an utterly elegant collection filled with feminine and ultra-chic goodies oozing classiness and flirtatiousness. There are sexy dresses, skirts and tops, suits as well as coats and capes.
As usual, Francesco Scognamiglio manages to create pieces characterized by a never-seen-before sophistication. “My evolution has been quite natural. I had never put a thread through the eye of a needle. One day as I was 15, maybe, I got passionate watching a tailor and… there I understood that the sound of a pair of scissors and the feeling of some fabrics were part of my soul. I began basting a jacket and then… sewing it and… as if by magic I started a marvelous adventure that I still live today as the first day,” the designer revealed in the same interview with NSSMAG.
Impeccable tailoring and a monochrome flare are the ingredients of Francesco Scognamiglio’s fall 2013 collection. The color palette includes mostly black and white adding a timeless elegance to the line. However, there are also nude hues and wild leopard prints. Ah, but those dresses seen at the end of the show were sexy and incredibly beautiful. The silhouettes, the colors and every single detail amplified the sensuality of Scognamiglio’s gowns. Absolutely fabulous!
