TWINSET Simona Barbieri – SS 2017
Emily Ratajkowski and Sasha Pivovarova Star in TWINSET SS 2017
On a road trip amidst sunny cliffs and endless sky, Emily Ratajkowski, the actress and “it girl” with over 13 million followers on Instagram, and top model Sasha Pivovarova are the new faces of TWINSET Simona Barbieri’s journey for Spring Summer 2017. This gal pal adventure portrays two complementary women who share a free and romantic spirit like that of the brand. Warm, sunny Santa Barbara, California, is the setting for the photos by Giampaolo Sgura and the styling of Edward Enninful.
The Spring Summer 17 Collection is a free spirit longing for femininity. TWINSET wardrobe reveals up-to-date romanticism based on a combination of stunning knitwear and light flowing dresses. Floral prints blossom to underscore subtle femininity and are blended with shimmering sequins for more special occasions and natural yarns to create an interplay of layers typical of the brand. Simona Barbieri, Creative Director of the Italian brand, continues her study of knits used to make special everyday knit bomber jackets worn with fitted dresses and flowing trousers.
Longing for freedom and outdoor life, the looks for Spring Summer 2017 feature a combination of pastel and warm shades, light fabrics and caressing volumes. Small and large prints are used for countless flowing dresses, chemisier dresses with lace intarsia, and parachute fabric trousers. The sheer peek-a-boo effect is the key to the entire wardrobe that gives just a glimpse without showing too much. Romantic urban macramé delicately appears on pantsuits and fitted dresses, which is one of the symbols of TWINSET Simona Barbieri that has been given a new twist. Washed silk and lustrous sequins dazzle the entire collection where knitwear is the core theme thanks to carded yarns with a cozy, rustic feel. Crochet explores new shapes and stitches for countless cardigans worn over dresses and suitable for any occasion, for a summer with a subtle gypsy mood.
“For this season I liked the idea of blending different weights and fabrics,” explained Creative Director Simona Barbieri, “using flowing fabrics contrasting with cozy knits. Floral prints are a must because they underline strong femininity in perfect TWINSET style.”
TWINSET Simona Barbieri stores are located in The Dubai Mall, Dubai Marina Mall, and Abu Dhabi Mall.
