Paris, France – If I were to describe the Redemption Fall/Winter 2017 ready-to-wear collection, I would have to qualify it as the specific encounter between an urban warrior princess like Xena who meets Alain Ducasse at the Plaza Athénée. Artistic director Gabriele Bebe Moratti’s work for the new season to come is a perfect balance between precise, elegant tailoring and military and punk influence. These aspects have through years become synonymous for this inspiring brand.
Here we have an opulent rebellion that connects the thread of the collection. There is this overt ply of contrasts that captures the spirit of the contemporary world with opposing decadence and punk. This results in a refined extravagance with a sense of urban grit. Moratti, uses delicate and intensely worked materials such as brocades, mikado silk, fil coupé and cotton canvas. The colour palette includes a rich mix of purples, electric blues, military greens and classic black and white with metallic dashes.
The final result is true to the Redemption ethos: sensual yet full of tension,and elegance with a twist.
As stated by Moratti, “An idea of aristocratic punk suited for the metropolitan environment arises: a Redemption fashion is a creative act that always maintains an eye on reality.”
The collection is composed of frock coats, skinny pants and towering heels. Timeless modernity and proud Italian craftsmanship, pillars of the brand, were visible in elegant suits and long, high leg-slit dresses. Biker jackets, blazers and tailored pants are the staples of the Redemption woman, both masculine and feminine, mixing austerity with decorative abandon. Of course these pieces have been embellished with sequins, cord embroideries and Swarovki Crystal Elements. Once conjugated the super mix is a fresh breath of fashion rebellion.
‘The clash, for Redemption, is the essence of modern elegance.’ BRAVO ! BRAVO !
