For the upcoming Fall / Winter collection, Alessandra Zanaria wants to amaze with technical mastery and sophistication in old craftsmanship, revisited and brought up to date by audacious combinations.
Warm wool hats are the basis for making precious crochet embroidery, capable of astonishing with the yarn’s volume and softness and for the strongly contrasting hues. Small clutch bags and big bangles of a variety of shapes and colors complete the series,
best owing style and personality to those who don them.
The ample scarves and large collars in virgin wool have always been a fundamental part of Alessandra Zanaria’s winter collections. Entirely handmade, thanks to the wide color palette they rotate around the entire collection, becoming a fundamental accessory in any wardrobe. Large flowers / stars applied onto crown headbands, finished with fine multicolored yarns, are combined with large and roomy multicolor bags crafted with a knot pattern and proposed in the same shades.
Black & white striped felt, embellished with trim handmade by skilled artisans, develop the optical theme in an innovative and unusual way for classic headgear like the coppola or peaked cap and the soft felt trilby for the day, and small dome headbands for the evening.
To provide relief from the hard, cold winter, Alessandra Zanaria offers accessories made entirely of fox patchwork such as: high bands which can also be used as collars, aviator hats and large pom pons mounted as earmuffs folding in on themselves are a practical accessory for the handbag, to have style and femininity always at hand.
Tinty hand-embroidered domes mounted on a small comb give life to seductive transparencies playing on the face of the wearer thanks to the netting with which they are decorated.
Large lettering sheathed in wool and mounted on headbands frame the face, while positioned as a decoration for great long-flap hats, they appear as thoughts springing
from the head of the wearer.
Thoughts, provocations or live motiv? Who knows?! Surprising in their lightness, they are truly sculptures, unique pieces for great personalities.
