TWIN-SET Simona Barbieri’s opening summer collection is bursting with colour. Full block colours are the stars of the season, with tangerine orange, larch green, cardinal red and candy pink. Deep blue and mother-of-pearl cream stand out with hints of pastel colours such as cameo, ice blue and agave green, which feature in marocain fabric with oriental flower prints or in multi-striped ottoman. Also making a great impact are tone-on-tone looks based on super-refined, up-to-the-minute colour ranges.
Long dresses are a perfect representation of this dive into colour, and come in delicate shades or in bright patterns in hippie-glam style. The quieter colours feature on long dresses made in embroidered cotton, silk and romantic bouquet-print canvas. The bright shades feature on items with striped Lurex, on long, feminine lace dresses in candy colours and on vintage-style items with patchworks of foulard prints.
