TOUCHES OF LIGHT
The creative leitmotif animating the forthcoming Save The Queen! winter collection is light. It is a light of a distinctly artistic matrix, artfully employed on prints and fabrics on a dark base, illuminating them with creativity and sartorial expertise at once.
The effect thath to give to the finished garment is precisely that of being “illuminated” we wisat very precise points, so as to enhance to the utmost the silhouette of the person wearing it.
This is the technique that the Flemish artists used to execute their oil paintings, where deft touches of light illumione of the star prints of the season, although it will never be proposed on the entire garment,nate splendid triumphs of flowers; it was through them that light made its authentic entry into the art of painting. And it is to them that Save The Queen! dedicates but rather inserted at certain points using a cut and inlay technique, astutely positioned so as to create strategic “spotlights”.
The “touch of light” derived from artistic strands rhythmically pervades the entire Autumn/Winter 2012/13 Save The Queen! collection, through a continual creative excursus that has identified in certain of Picasso’s works its second fount of inspiration, gravitating aroundwhich are the colours and prints of a significant part of the collection. This great artistic genius in effect painted with light, generating the most extraordinary performances.
With the Autumn/Winter 2012/13 collection Save The Queen! takes over a new mood that is garbed in sophistication.
The colour range does not comprise strong contrasts but rather develops in more natural nuances, without neglecting black. The prints proposed are fewer in number with more sophisticated and delicate colour calibrations, in many cases “ton sur ton”, mingled with plain shades and in any case matched with other fabrics. The articles are proposed as co-ordinated with each other in each colourway. Finally, the offer is rounded off by a striking proposal of “jewel-garments”.
