CHIARA BONI The Little Dress decides to make its own contribution to the Made in Italy system by choosing, after so many seasons in New York, to parade in Italy, in a prestigious and special location. Per l’occasione, the designer Chiara Boni returns to a place of the heart, Forte dei Marmi, the splendid seaside resort on the Tuscan coast, destination of the long and happy summers of his childhood.
The luxurious beach ofAugustus Hotel & Resort, once a beach chosen by the Agnelli family, often cited in Susanna Agnelli's bestseller "Vestivamo alla marinara", becomes the stage for an intimate and personal fashion show, which celebrates the timeless elegance that Versilia has witnessed over the decades.
And precisely that casual and spontaneous refinement, that emerges from the photographs of the fifties and seventies taken at the famous Capannina in Forte dei Marmi, but also so well described in Susanna Agnelli's book, is the protagonist of the collectionCHIARA BONIThe Little Dress for the seasonSpring / Summer 2021. The soft lights of a late summer afternoon and the golden color of the Fort's sand blend with the palette chosen for the show: harmonious tones of creamy white combined with light shades of beige. It is a hymn to lightness, to the light-heartedness of a season that fills the heart with joy and serenity.
L’estate 2021 of Chiara Boni embraces a hyper-refined aesthetic, but always comfortable and functional, as in the tradition of the brand. The iconic jersey of the brand, combination of functionality, impeccable fit and responsibility towards the environment, it becomes softer and lighter to give life to fluid silhouettes and slips. One-shoulder dresses with feminine drapes or seductive batwing sleeves, they slide on the body for a refined seduction. Sarong-style skirts are worn with sophisticated costumes that reveal sculpted bodices or soft bows, while jersey miniskirts are enriched with voluminous flounces and tulle trains that caress the sand. Tailored-inspired cuts characterize the double-breasted blazers to be worn with cigarette trousers, while sartorial inspired prints give an elegant touch to the suits, tightened at the waist by matching belts. The dresses with shapes that recall the elegance of the 1950s reveal hyper-feminine silhouettes, while a fluid sustainable silk makes trousers worn with collarless polo shirts and small tunics soft and light.
If the mood of the show is monochromatic, the showroom lights up with bright shades of fuchsia, cobalt blue and green, but also of more discreet and timeless tones than flax, bronze and denim. While the prints of the sartorial tradition meet the evergreen femininity of floral motifs, joyful and elegant.
