Giada Curti chose a special melody to open the show for the launch of her latest F/W 2014-2015 Women Collection: zaghrouta, a typical guttural sound made by Arab women during weddings. An opulent Arab setting made of colors, perfumes and luxurious details from those lands, makes a perfect match for the elegant and straightforward simplicity of the wedding dress: a tunic scattered with precious crystals.
The Collection, named after the Arabic word for thank you, Shukran, is an homage from Giada to her second home country: the United Arab Emirates, Dubai in particular. “It is my way to say thank you to this place for all the positive things I received here and for what awaits me in the next coming months: the opening of my new atelier in Dubai” Giada Curti.
With this 10 pieces capsule collection, Giada bursts into Haute Couture with passionate innovation that unveils all her enjoyment and ability in blending different cultures and traditions, resulting in hyperbolic yet delicate lines, tailoring insertions, precious embroideries, master cuts. In this feast for the eyes, it is always clearly recognizable Giada’s Style made of simple cuts, attention to details and skillful fabric selection. At times plain, at times embroidered, we can find silk, satin, mikado, chantilly lace, macramé, only to name few.
Those 10 pieces represent a small window on the entire collection that will be presented during 2014 Dubai Fashion week next October.
Dubai is the place where she got the inspiration from, as the elegant austerity of long dresses and the color selection seem to hint: light pink from the sand in the desert, pure white from kanduras, silver from iconic buildings like Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and Emirates Towers.
The turban is the central accessory of the collection, with its unique style and reinvented colors, it is the new must-have for Giada Curti Haute Couture winter.
After the international success of the G-Bag line, Shukran collection brings in the winter version of this cult accessory. This time made of wool and velvet ribbons but once again scattered with stones, chains and pearls, in one word feminine. – http://www.giadacurti.it/
