The new Tua by Braccialini Spring/Summer 2011 collection signs out in a choral homage to women from all over the world, who will be featured on the Cartoline (Postcards) line. A lighthearted and passionate “I love you” to those fairy beinges that, each day, make our world so special, whatever latitude or continent we live in,Women, women, and more women from every ethnic group and personality: a country stylle girl next to a mill in the Netherlands, or a cowgirl in a saloon in the wild west of the States, a sporty girl on a surfboard in Hawaii, a princess on the back of an imposing elephant in India, a Venetian girl aboard a gondola in Italy, a meditative girl close to a temple in China, a woman full of brightness in the heart of African savannah.
Declarations of love continue throughout the other lines in the collection, too, with a profusion of hearts, actually the distinctive sign of the Tua Line. Whether they are proposed in a super-pop version, or are facifully reinterpreted on canvas trunks in pastel nuances, or whether they are three dimensional relief appliqués on beaded fabric clutches together with audacious, shocking pink rubber lips, hearts are not lacking in next year’s Spring Summer collection.
Braccialini has a unique capacity to draw inspiration from daily life and turn ordinary moments into extraordinary occasions: that is how freshly laundered clothes hanging out to dry become a playful and unexpected fashion show lined up from one balcony to another, on basckets backpacks and sacks. Little stray cats made of multicolored fabric patchwork attentively watch the show from a courtyard on bags that are sure to become collector’s items.
A bit of luck is always welcome! A mini-series of lucky bags with a whole array of good luck charms is launched; bullhorn, ladybug, horseshoe; all appliquéd on sporty, bright colored bags that are dedicated to those that are superstitious…or maybe just optimistic.
And may luck be with us always. From birth to old age, passing through the phases of adoloscence and adulthood: Braccialini reproduces all of the season of life on trunks with a naif style that recalls the special innocence of children’s drawings.
Really, a fun view of life or, better yet, delicious!! Ice cream, cookies, cream puffs and lollypops are appliquéd to three models characterized by a cheerful style that playfully satisfy your sweet tooth.
