Florence-based Ilaria Nistri juxtaposed fluidity and rigidity in her kimono-inspired fall offering. The understated yet luxurious collection was full of wide-leg palazzo pants, sometimes split up the side with zip edges, adding a metallic glint.
Strong items included a diamond-patterned patchwork leather miniskirt and an oversize viscose and wool sleeveless coat. Fluid and asymmetric jackets were an appealing alternative to the tuxedo when worn over a long, loose crêpe dress, while stretch leather leggings in treated lambskin were paired with a translucent skirt and a chunky sweater.
Nistri’s tone-on-tone color palette was made up mostly of black, with touches of russet, dark blue and brown and a few black and white prints by artist Aitor Ortiz.
