Rosso Regina Dress: inspired by the velvety red of a rose.
Dress whose bodice is made of different velvets: silk or cotton.
Four velvets of different shades of red matched to form light-dark in between the “pleats” or folds that make up the bustier. Embroidery in drawstring and oval multifaceted in red crystals that decorate the whole following the free evolutions of shapes.
The fastening with rear crossed laces allows a change of size interrupting the vertical geometry of the black stripes interwoven in the Borgogna red velvet.
The skirt is make of silk with those shades from carmine red to vermilion up to its red-purple and burgundy hem.
It is completely handmade. Dying is an art whose result is visible only once the fabric has dried up. The dye pigments move freely in the silky fabric and repeating the dying process is often necessary in order to obtain a certain shade.
Red-brown brush strokes start from the waist in a stylised painting that recalls a stem where a flower blooms.
This model is curled up at waist level in the central-front part only and it forms a “column” panel. It is tight to the hips and slips from them on both sides in two very long leaves ending with a ring in its hem that lifts the fabric in several evolutions and shades taking advantage of the air through it.
A big burgundy organza ribbon of bias oversees the train on the back of the skirt giving it all charm and grace.
