Brioni, the label behind the Bond tuxedo, has proven that their women’s collection is one to rival their eponymous men’s tailoring. Sophisticated handcrafted tailoring combined with feminine designs created empowering and sensual garments that echoed Japanese Samurai. Heavy mauve weaving in the form of an angular bib rests over the chest with long suede sleeves that partially cover the hand. Astrakhan trimmed coats paid homage to the Russian and Mongolian people, whose Persian-lamb skin is a precious and necessary material use for the ultimate protection from the sub-zero temperatures.
Flannel, block grey dresses with suede, dusky rose sleeves have subtle stitching that reflect the intricate paneling of the Mongolian national dress, which either draw the eye to the abdomen or twist the fabric across the body and to the side, taking the neckline in the same direction. An interesting spin on a modestly detailed garment, the sumptuous fabric and tailored fit is pared down elegance.
