I AM A WARRIOR Manuel Facchini FW17

I am a warrior: Manuel Facchini’s female warriors march into Autumn-Winter 2018 in foliage inspired knitwear, with over-sized woven motifs, incorporating Eighties bombers and severe bodices, but with a touch of the ancien régime.

Women are shielded by a natural armour, featuring the sharp lines of palm leaves, reinterpreted with a geometric twist to create interwoven elements that enclose the pattern – a bold yet graphic one, naturally.

A fierce, pure nobility shines through in the interaction between delicate tulle and strips embroidered with metallic trims, for a contrast that chains together the long dresses and sweaters of these fighters, who are part-rock, part-gothic, yet sophisticated in essence.
