Unique craftsmanship and contemporary sophistication meet in Malo’s new women’s collection, enhanced by the fine crafting and precious details that give new meaning to the timeless charm of cashmere and fine cotton yarns.
In a chromatic rhythm touched by natural nuances and light hues, coral, pink and sage lend a fresh feel next to vibrant fleur-de-lis and ice and the intensity of royal blue, bright red and papaya, along with fluorescent yellow-lime.
The luxurious, ultra modern look especially infuses the “Twist” capsule collection, a line of extremely sophisticated clothing and accessories with intricate threading and cut-outs in which cotton, nappa leather and cashmere are trimmed with long, wavy fringes on dresses, boleros, miniskirts, generous day-to-night tote bags and belts inspired by the Navajo.
This refined, harmonious balance is emphasized by the unique crafting of the season’s other capsule collection, “Saint Tropez”, which not only reinterprets the legendary Malo bag, but plays on its iconic weave for a complete look that encompasses polos, tanks, T-shaped cardigans and jackets with three-quarter length sleeves.
Cashmere, cotton and cashmere/silk create measured, form-fitting lines, contrasting with softer, deconstructed, asymmetrical volumes worn loosely and opening to reveal the layering of different shapes and unexpected mixes of materials, with a delicately romantic look in the floral prints and transparent silk or cotton daywear pieces.
Combined with the floral patterns – featured alone or in the Jacquard sweaters – satin-finish metal studs, captivating color-blocking and see-through effects stand out, with raised stripes or crocheted textures to recreate the effect of couture lace on the longer, more sinuous silhouettes.
A line of accessories, inspired by and crafted using the season’s materials, complete the collection, from the slip-on loafers and ballerina shoes in contrasting leather and patent leather to the thong sandals decorated with shiny studs.
