Fall/Winter 2016

RAFFAELLO ROSSI
We welcome a new dynamics, further manifesting itself in the autumn and winter silhouettes. Besides flared and shortened 70s-forms, reminiscences of the 80s, like peg top pants with a high waistline or, a bit more relaxed, with a turned-over waistband, dominate the scene. The “skinny” is promoted to a classic and is sovereignly contrasted by voluminous Marlenestyle shapes that occasionally remind us of skirts. The successful Culotte seduces us with new details like coquettish buckles, pleated waistbands and broad cuffs. It oscillates between feminine softness and masculine rigor.
Sportive esprit meets thrilling mixes of materials in the form of relaxed jogging- or lounge pants that, when combined with high heels and silk blouses, now even can be worn in the evenings. Furthermore, we worship tradition with pinstripes on high-quality wool optics or rich jacquards with graphic or ornamental designs on preciously shining stretch qualities. Borrowings from tweed promise unforeseen comfort on comfortable jerseys. Last but not least, velvet rounds out the variety of materials.

 

RAFFAELLO ROSSI TRENDLINE
Stylistically, the progressive Trendline by Raffaello Rossi has it’s finger on the pulse of time, immediately reacting to new trends in the big international cities – focusing on effective prints, cool details and a contemporary bandwidth of exclusive materials and handmade prints from Italy.
High-stretch velvet gives the waist-high “skinny” with sensational metal buttons its uncompromisingly seductive form. The Marlene-pant comes along ultra-nonchalantly with nobly floating broad corduroy, and can be styled as sexy as androgynously with masculine patent-leather loafers and shortened shirts. The flat jersey-stretch quality in intensive navy makes our flared jeans a comfortable must-have for exciting days. Denim is our passion, and in this new season again, authentic destroyed- or patch-effects with a boho-appeal, glamorous rhinestone embellishments, daring pinstripes, fanciful coatings, eye-catching flock prints or a provocative allover-tattoo-design leave nothing to wish for.
