Fall Winter

/

2017 - 2018

The decorative and the intimate sides of a woman’s soul meet in a polycentric universe, between northern influences and neo-baroque memories. Mavina 2017-18 presents an “arctic tale” inspired by the Scandinavian scenery, which is characterized by extreme cleanliness, durability, concreteness and practicality, but also warmed up by a surprisingly mixed iconography.

The material is no longer just a material, but it becomes the initial idea and a vehicle for change: new tactile and visual textures are created and taken from both nature and futuristic atmospheres. Laminated mink, swakara lamb and fox are eye-catching through their shiny ripples that echo the effect of the Aurora Borealis. Cold, frosty, metallic hues and craquelé-effect fur are softened by sparks of honey gold, emerald green, Ruby red, and by the combination of super soft materials like cashmere and peachskin cotton.

Starting from apparently contrasting elements, formal and casual are perfectly mixed: sophisticated mink or cashmere/wool blend mini coats, with loose and curved lines, alternate with military-inspired Afghan lamb overcoats with tapered and rigid silhouettes. Simple and functional shapes, inspired by Scandinavian design, are broken by enticing decorative patterns coming from the Iberian Peninsula, India, and Nordic folklore itself. Peony intarsia on bomber jackets and duster coats are a tribute to the extremely refined Portuguese azulejos, while the paisley pattern, which is cross-stitched on cashmere and placed as intarsia detail on mink, is given a minimalist reinterpretation. Lastly, the floral embroidered patches that color Afghan lamb peacoats, take us inside a surreal, naïve world. The final look is never excessive, as it hints at understated and practical elegance: the collection is completed by utility jackets like reversible bomber jackets and versatile parkas in tech fabric and sable, essential items to survive the urban jungle.

The Mavina 2017-18 collection offers an intriguing time-travel journey to worldly women on the go, as well as those who just daydream of adventures.
