Santoni has presented the collection Women’s Spring / Summer 2017, very glamorous : here the exoticism becomes hedonism. The Santoni s/s 17 collection is precious, glittering, free. He outlines the figure of a woman who chooses the better just to gratify herself.
The tension between male and female, typical of Santoni, is a frisson that remains in the background. This season we celebrate the seduction of metissage through opulent and dazzling creations. Moroccans insist echoes: the taste of colors and materials plots, the tactility of infilature painstaking and intricate carving work reminiscent of the atmosphere of Marrakech. Thick beaded embroidery is encrusted on the high sandals or suede on flat suede slipper. Mignon plots draw on exotic geometries maxi wedges cross sandals; boots dematerialize in multicolor python sequences. Moorish carvings and embroidery studs draw arabesques on pump and exotic splendor brogues. Heels with bold volumes and laces decorated with tassels sutured Morocco and escapism disk.
The plot of dense shade of green, amber, brown, ultraviolet, lobster creates a sumptuous chromatic texture. Precious materials: python, suede, calfskin.
Continuing the path started with the men’s collection, Santoni collaborates once again with the critic Angelo Flaccavento for the creation of an immersive experience in which the shoes are living in an emotional context and suggestive. The patricians interiors of Palazzo Bocconi are invaded by a labyrinth, set up by Simon Costin, in which viewers will be lost, chasing the traces of a woman intent on enjoying the personal vices and unbridled autoindulgenze. Experience is announced by a call in which the artist Antonio Pippolini drawings are hidden on the first inside look mysterious empty envelopes. The message: the real luxury you can enjoy in private, away from prying eyes, losing himself in true, little vices.
