Antwerp, Belgium – Fabric Fancy returns to us this season with an effortlessly feminine collection. They new Fall Winter 2016/17 affair enjoys all the codes that have made the St. Petersburg-based fashion house into one of the most respected names in Russian fashion.
Fabric Fancy gives us what we most expect of its DNA: subtle yet strong colors, simple cuts, beautiful fabrics and original prints. They are used to fashion together short dresses, that reveal the neck at all times with their rounded crew and plunging necklines. The shoulders are revealed often. When sleeves appear, they are often just over the shoulders or are 3/4 length in cut. And of course the trousers in the collection are slim cut or even amply cut according to the look.
Fabric Fancy ‘s prints are always a delight in any of their collections. This collection would be no different. The house places its bets on geometrical forms. They are repeated at times in the embroideries. This latter element also forms one of the most elegant codes to the house’s DNA.
