David Lean’s “Doctor Zhivago” was the inspiration for Piero and Miriam Cividini’s collection. In particular, the designers focused on the contrast between the sophisticated look of the protagonist, Lara Antipova, and the rustic look of the Russian working classes during the Bolshevik revolution. The inspiration translated into a collection that touched different notes: Opulent touches were introduced via astrakhan coats and printed fur jackets layered over intarsia dresses and fluid frocks embellished with fringe. Fur trimmed an oversize wool cardigan, which showcased Cividini’s high-end artisanal skills. A more subdued, pastoral vibe was evident in the velvet tunic dresses and the rib-knit dresses, while a series of blazers, Bermuda shorts and wide-leg pants were crafted from men’s wear fabrics. A mohair wool coat was paired with a thick sweater and a skirt in a graphic motif for a laid-back, discreet elegance.
