The Manila Grace FW19 pre-collection is inspired by the stylistic revolution of the 1990s, the first time that urban style worked its way into pret-a-porter, opening the door to everyday clothing fashion.
Overlays, fearlessly daring patterns and renewal. This Manila Grace collection experiments with new trends but never loses sight of its signature features.
The stage is charged by fluorescent colours that stand out against a panorama of coloured neutrals.
Check outerwear comes in a brash flamboyant yellow fluo, geometric cuts highlight the silhouette and are enhanced with meticulous detailing.
Silver is the protagonist of striking mirror-effect skirts in a look with eccentric overtones.
Knitwear is soft and swollen, dynamised by optical and visionary prints.
‘Think Different’… the printed lettering becomes a message to show off on large wrap-around dresses, jumpsuits and pleated pants. Shoulder-pads swell and take on a couture-style construction, while waistlines are highlighted by belts.
Lace is flounced in a mix’n’match of colours and then worked into long dresses and skirts, combined with grunge-look T-shirts.
Even pied-de-poule is subverted by combinations with contrasting mini or maxi patterns.
Flower power: flowers bloom their way boldly into the collection, swarming tumultuously over velvets, silks and viscoses. Different patterns are mixed with one another to create a vast floral collage, shamelessly projecting glamour. Sequinned clothes and suits complete the pageant.
Bomber jackets, dresses and miniskirts in wool all flout an original eccentric touch by adding elements with a crumpled naplak patent leather effect, also used for waist belts.
Tartan is a key element in the grunge mood, surprising on slim shirts with silver pockets and lace detailing, or on robe de chambre outerwear and double-breasted jackets with ruffles.
One famed fixture in the Manila Grace universe is polka dot prints paraded on fluid dresses and blouses, in multi-coloured versions or on infallible blacks and whites.
The rock’n’roll section could hardly resist a vinyl temptation flaunted in purple on sheath dresses, corolla mini-skirts and trousers… eventually to be worn with contrasting turquoise garments like the silk blouses or the down jacket which, thanks to the insertion of internal braces, can be worn as a backpack.
Knitwear offers a melting pot mixing different patterns and jacquard workmanship finished with fringes: to achieve an eclectic look, the winning match is with the trench with its hammered patent effect.
The tuxedo trend brings down the final curtain: male-cut clothing, evening dress tuxedos, suits, short jackets cleverly conveying a paradoxical ultra-femininity, underlined by chromatic total black and precious fabrics such as crêpe and satin on seductive lapels.
