There is something exquisitely mysterious about the harmony that derives from the eternal tension between strength and effortlessness. It is the harmony of an icon’s beauty like Veruschka, rock-solid yet soft, linear yet sinuous. An attitude, more than a connotation. A kind of beauty, almost animalistic, such that it reminds us of a panther, statuesque yet as fast as the lightning. It is just from this kind of beauty that the AW collection 2022/2023 has been thought out, according to the vision of Creative Director Sara Cavazza Facchini.
Minimalism and maximalism, together as one. The minimalism is the silhouettes, super polished, reminiscent of the 90s. The maximalism is in the colors, a very strong palette of tones like chocolate, coral, fuchsia, purple, tangerine, lime, characterize the looks. Together they form this beautiful union. However, minimalism and maximalism also meet in the combination of the materials: jacquard with animalier graphics, paired with knit tops enriched by Swarovski crystals tone-on-tone and combined with textiles reminiscent of liquid mercury, sliding down on the neck and chest. Looking at the volumes we find another juxtaposition, with wide bomber jackets and slightly flared miniskirts and finally, in the feminine and masculine elements. This time, rendered with the idea of the tuxedo bowtie, untied around the neck, and transformed into the detail of a garment and of a long dress, like a man’s jacket worn with just a pair of very tall boots, like a suede stocking, or with orchid decorated pumps. Lastly, the trousers. In the accessories, light dictates the pace, with a cascade of rhinestones that wraps the waist and the boot.
Genny’s style is an ode to sensuality, without rifts or stretches but that is, actually, the translation into clothes of being a woman, strong and effortless at the same time.
