Genny presented FW22 at Milan Fashion Week – inspiration by German actress Veruschka abd from the tension between strength and effortlessness. It is the harmony of an icon’s beauty – rock-solid yet soft, linear yet sinuous. An attitude, more than a connotation.
The collection was thought out from that kind of almost animalistic beauty, such that it reminds us of a panther, statuesque yet as fast as the lightning, that was the vision of Creative Director Sara Cavazza Facchini. Translating into the designs the Genny woman, strong and effortless at the same time.
Minimalism and maximalism, together appeared as one. The minimalism is the silhouettes, super polished, reminiscent of the 90s. The maximalism is in the colours, a very strong palette
and tones such as chocolate, coral, fuchsia, purple, tangerine, lime, characterising the looks. Together they create a beautiful union.
Minimalism and maximalism also meet in the combination of materials: jacquard with animalier graphics, paired with knit tops enriched by Swarovski crystals tone-on-tone, combined with textiles reminiscent of liquid mercury, sliding down on the neck and chest.
Looking at volumes we saw a wide bomber jackets and slightly flared mini skirts, and with feminine and masculine elements. This time, rendered with the idea of the tuxedo bowtie, united around the neck and transformed into the detail of a garment and of a long dress, like a man’s jacket worn with just a pair of very tall boots, like a suede stocking, or with orchid decorated pumps. Lastly, the trousers. In the accessories, light dictates the pace, with a cascade of rhinestones that wraps the waist and the boot.
