I know I always say such and such designer is my favourite, but Azzaro is hitting all the right buttons right now with the newly launched Spring Summer 2013 resort collection. Mathilde Castello Branco wants her to come to her cocktail party, fabrics are wet like lamé and iridescent chiffon; colours are rich and alcoholic, brandy, whisky and cherry. The collection is sexy, feminine, and dresses are long, luxurious and shiny. This is the perfect juxtaposition, ice verus the sweltering heat of those heady, haxy summer days. I imagine the Azzaro feminine form to be a force to be reckoned with. She knows her form, her style and her disposition. She radiates sensuality and she dresses to complement that.
This collection makes me sit up and take notice and reaffirm exactly why I work in fashion. Mathilde, you may just be my heroine.
