Costarellos SS 2017 COLLECTION
In Costarellos SS 2017 RTW collection, the power of ethereal, alluring women comes to the limelight.
The designer draws inspiration from the heroines in Dante Gabriel Rossetti's poems and paintings, beautiful in their secretly provocative way. The designer's creations manage to combine decorum and sensuality, to be austere and playful at the same time, reminding Irving Penn's masterpiece portraits. Nevertheless, he never abandons the Greek landscape, history and tradition, ending up in a collection saturated with calm and classical elegance.
For this new collection, Christos Costarellos has used luxurious materials sourced from the best suppliers in Europe. The extensive use of lace, from guipure to Chantilly and embroidery patterns from Greek islands mixed with silk chiffon creating classic separates, presented with a twist and girly yet elegant dresses.
The crop tops -sometimes sleeveless, bow-tie or collar neck- are combined with flattering trumpet-shaped or voluminous skirts.
What follows is a luxurious array of dresses aiming to promote a woman's beauty. A-lined mini dresses, effortlessly chic and romantically feminine midi-lengths and to-the-floor dresses having a liquid appeal and floating around the body with a soft, weightless tailoring.
