DISCOVER THE TWINSET MILANO COLLECTION FOR SPRING/SUMMER 2019 Ethnic touches run through the entire TWINSET MILANO Spring/Summer 2019 collection: eyelet lace, crochet, feathers and fringe define dresses and trousers, knits and outerwear, creating a mood tied to the historic Coachella Festival, an attraction for today’s young bohemians. Monochrome print fabrics in red and black have a colonial inspiration and resemble the "Toile de Jouy" textiles made in Jouy-en-Josas in the late 19th century. The strong lines of the design are typical of wood engravings: distinctive, simple and elegant. Butterflies, a signature theme of the brand, are embroidered on kimono dresses, created as intarsia on leather jackets, and are the protagonists of jacquard motifs in the luxurious metallic shades of Lurex. New for spring and summer is the Limited Edition project distinguished by a label created especially for the occasion: its series of luxurious garments are characterized by a careful study of the brand DNA, a masterly use of fine materials and artisan crafting. This capsule collection is the result of a study of archive garments, inspired by the feminine world of lingerie and precious silk apparel with an early 20th century vintage mood. Silk satin in cool shades and natural white hues has lace intarsia and is decorated with all-over floral motifs. Linen cloth, with its typical natural appearance of an unfinished fabric, is decorated with hand-embroidery and oxidized sequins, which darken over time to augment the vintage charm of the garment. Footwear reflects the mood of the collection: the classic cowboy boot comes in a new sabot version and is decorated with stitching and a jeweled strap.
