- AW10 collection PHOENIX
“PHOENIX”, thebird reborn anew from her own ash, is the inspiration theme of Amelia Ursache’s autumn/winter 10 collection.
Gracious and vulnerable in appearance, but strong and firm inside herspirit, the woman symbolizing the firebird, has the invincible power toovercome all barriers in life, the unexpected resources to arise herself and togo on with her flight.
Thru a rock-glamorous style, mixing a scale of luxury avant-gardefabrics, Amelia´s new creations enlighten a heroic, but very sensualsilhouette, full of mystery.
The contrasts, always present in her collections, are not between thecolors this season, but between the effects of mat and shiny tissues inthe same tone: jacquards, art leather, lace and hand-printed wool.
The classical corset cocktail dress is deconstructed and enhancedby innovative draping and pleats, since the “swallow tail” jackets andblazers are distinguished by their asymmetrical cuts, pointed shoulders,tubular collars and definite waste.
Dark colorsas carbon black, smoke-grey and granite, the ”mat-shinny” game, as well as theunconventionally cut-outs , are inviting you to a nocturne atmosphere, ofrustle and exciting, where a terrified swallow can become suddenly ...afirebird!
