Italian Grandeur

Hand embroidery, intricate threadwork, and tonal crystals come together to create richly romantic results. Bold glittering sequins nodding to the 1960’s are combined with delicate lace inspired by the Italian heritage of Princess Orietta Doria Pamphilj, the muse for Autumn Winter 2019. Her ancestral home, the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj’s influence is woven throughout the collection; the patchwork embroidery is an abstracted take on the damask wallpaper. Elsewhere, embroidery is reminiscent of the family jewels stitched inside the lining of Princess Orietta’s coat when attempting to escape Mussolini.
