For the FW2018/19 Luisa Beccaria pays tribute to the style of singer Marianne Faithfull, the dreamlike world of Lewis Carroll, and Giovanni Boldini’s painterly aesthetics. The Luisa Beccaria woman playfully wears embroidered wolls, organdie, velvet, lurex, silk twill and brocade, turning mail fabrics into a hyper feminine look.

Light crystals and full sequin looks juxtaposed with cashmere sweatshirts and cardigans. Sashes and
high belts emphasize the waist of soft and sensual silhouettes, alternating more structured shapes.
A velvet shirt dress is crossed by silver, teal and blue lurex brush strokes. Winter flowers adorn a fil coupé embroidered tulle dress. Long organdie light dresses become 3D with applications and embroideries. A cape dress plays with textures and volumes.
The chromatic palette descends from a research on non-colours and neutral tones: a thousand hues of
greige, beige, grey. Then the blue, teal and peacock shades. Hints of red, blush pink and powder pink
punctuate the collection.
