Inside The DROMe FW18 Collection During Paris Fashion Week
On Saturday, March 3, 2018, designer Marianna Rosati debuted her FW18 collection for DROMe with a runway show at Espace Pierre Cardin in Paris. Notable guests included Olivia Palermo, Shaun Ross, and Jennifer Grace of The Native Fox.
DROMe, an Italian brand uniquely based in leather, favors a sophisticated and minimal aesthetic with careful attention to detail and exceptional treatments. The FW18 collection, “Disguised Contrasts,” is defined by endless juxtaposition between fabrics and shapes, featuring a clean color palette of white, cream and grey, punctuated with pops of pomegranate, military green and pink. This marks DROMe’s sixth season showing during PFW.
The DROMe Fall/Winter 2018 collection, “Disguised Contrasts,” portrays a woman who has two souls. Beneath her refined, elegant appearance hides a daring woman with a provocative attitude and a flamboyant personality. Her glamorous look and sophisticated style is used to disguise a secret sense of risk. Designed by Marianna Rosati, the collection is defined by endless contrasts in both materials and shapes.
Python print Nappa leather, zebra-striped fur and wrinkled satin are mixed with georgette and super light organza. Pencil skirts and oversized coats are cut by wide tears, classic cardigans acquire distorted proportions, and tops become deconstructed bustiers. Oversized silhouettes are juxtaposed with bold, ’90’s inspired apparel: mini-skirts, cropped jackets and tight pants exude fierce disposition and a determined energy.
The color palette takes inspiration from the hues of sunset and night, the time of day when the DROMe woman feels the most confident. Sharp accessories complement each look, with mini patent leather belts emphasizing the high waist and micro bags tied around the chest, resembling straps. The classic décolleté is revised through squared heels and tapered toes, made with python print leather, patent leather and metallic Nappa.
