SPRING SUMMER 2013
Summer silks and luxury graphics on stage at Agnona
A collection defined by discreet luxury, designed for a naturally elegant woman, self-confident, who selects clothing that is simple and refined – the true basis of elegance. A style created from precious materials, fluid silhouettes and an absolute attention to details. Lightweight “Cashmere Double”, precious silk and natural suede become the undeniable protagonists of the season.
The understated luxury of the newest Agnona collection is illustrated by the use of prestigious materials and innovative treatments. Silk has been reinforced with a resin membrane for soft jackets with water repellent performance. Summerweight Cashmere debuts in rich color blocks, graphic stripes and warm tone-on-tone combinations adorned with leather details.
In nuances ranging from ivory to grey, the seersucker and striped silk shorts and coordinates add a touch of chic to daywear. A must-have jewel of the collection, the luxurious crochet and embroidered vest with knitted silk ribbon threaded with beads, is a testament to the impeccable craftsmanship and absolute attention to detail.
Silk mixes with Cashmere to create the maximum expression in form and texture, as seen in the classic sophistication of iconic plissé knitwear, dresses and the feminine double-breasted beige suits. Silk and plissé meet once more in suede skirts and dresses, while graphic elements in pure printed silks can be worn day and night.
New blends of cotton, linen and silk lend a comfortable edge to everyday elegance. Volumes are reinterpreted in tops, jackets and trousers, and natural tones – from ivory and rich camel to burnt tobacco. The collection is complemented by iconic “Cashmere Cloud” scarves, cashmere-silk “Cordeon” plissé, and light linen embellished with embroidery, macramé or suede fringes. New shapes of braided leather bags and lizard clutches are delightfully versatile, adding a touch of individuality and glamour to a decidedly sophisticated look.
Unique details, refined styles and effortless elegance.
