COLLECTION FW 16

The fine 2016 fashion collection by the fashion designer Jamal Taslaq finds inspiration from the mural painting decorations of Italian Renaissance and from the kaleidoscopic reflections of light of the placid Mediterranean Sea, meeting point of the two cultures loved by him. Indeed the ornaments of the clothes recall the frescoes' naturalistic forms in the flowers, the leaves, the corals as well as in the stylized waves of the sea.
The unusual monochromatic collection is discreetly ornamented in the details by a spectrum of colors which most emphasize the brilliance of white even by counteracting in the combination of fabrics. The white, symbol of purity, is declined in all of its shades until it becomes pink topaz and is interpreted by Taslaq with extreme elegance as a color suitable for every occasion and season. Embellished by imaginative and sophisticated embroidery and approached to the warm colors of coral and gold and to the cold tones of turquoise and silver. The selected fabrics are the ones most beloved by the fashion designer, from the crepe cady to the crepe marocain with bias cut, in order to exalt without seams the curves of female body in the slipped models. Instead the lightness of the chiffon gives to Haute Couture dresses evanescence and filminess.
For the construction of the classic wedding dresses, always strongly original and uncommon, Taslaq prefers the mikado, reinterpreted in contemporary taste on broken models or enriched by original lace compositions, for instance by fanciful embroideries with pearls, swarovski, turquoise and coral. The leather, stylistic figure of the couturier, is used in several relief models, in hand made sophisticated fantasies stitched with extreme skill and experience exclusively in the personal atelier in Rome. The leather inlays, embellished by the embroidery, define the clothes with colors from gold to silver, bronze, blue, green and yellow. The models of the new collection, in their refinement class and elegance, do not neglect the boldest femininity by uncovering the body with long slits and winking transparencies and necklines where the back takes a special role also fully uncovering itself.
