TWINSET Simona Barbieri incorporates green into fabrics, combining deep autumnal tones with pops of neon green for autumn/winter 2016. The green nuances are offset by neutral pewter and geometric floral prints with flashes of neon on silk velvet, winter knitwear and jacquard technical stretch jerseys. Iridescent fabrics such as duchesse satin and laminated gauze offer a feminine take on the outdoors military style. With contrasting colours of Rosa neon pink and Verde neon green, the theme is complete.
Complementing the trend are textured knits, with the new sottosopra (upside down) patchwork style that has tops emerging from cardigan sleeves and petticoats peeping out from below the hemline of woollen dresses.
