NY Fashion Week: CHIARA BONI La Petite Robe Fall/Winter 2017

By  | 

CHIARA BONI La Petite Robe  sent a very glamorous collection down the runway for Fall 2017.  When I saw the turbans and sparkling accessories I couldn’t help but think of the 1940’s style of the great MGM costume designers Adrian and Irene Lentz (remember Lana Turner’s white turban in The Postman Always Rings Twice? )  Fittingly, the collection was titled “Grand Hotel” another great MGM film with Greta Garbo.  The collection was dedicated to women who are “international globetrotter and a guest of the most prestigious hotels in the world and travels the globe in style.”

For Fall 2017,  the La Petite Robe collection showed faux leather, velvet and matte fabrics. Exposed zippers and tuxedo-inspired collars add an edge of masculinity to the feminine silhouette. The playful runway show featured  male models dressed as hotel bellboys complete with baggage carts and shopping bags following the models down the runway.

The collection featured a range of complimentary accessories. There were clutches and mini handbags in jersey and velvet, along with a range of pumps, mules and sandals. The La Petite Robe Fall collection’s color palette featured darker, nocturnal tones along with pops of teal and purple.

An exclusive capsule collection of turbans in the signature CHIARA BONI La Petite Robe fabric adds a final touch. These are produced by Caritas Roma with the She Turban Project, associated with ‘Io abito qui’.
