I.D. Sarrieri’s collection for SS13 is a devastatingly elegant and luxurious range of lingerie and ready to wear created in tulle, Georgette and satin fabrics. The collection overall takes elegance on an bold adventure; “inverting roles between transparence and opaque creates new forms of expression for femininity” I.D. Sarrieri tells us.
“Ensembles for the new season mix silk satin pieces with full lace articles. Vintage inspired designs take to the front row retro bras with pointed cups to be combined with full circle skirt, quoting from the fifties swing dance floor outfit. Unique models with special rear decolletage, usually marked with metallic zippers, reinforce the statement that style starts from the smallest details. At the edge of two pieces versus one piece lingerie stands the bullet bra attached to high waist maxi briefs, thus creating striking looks very pliable to conspicuous, voguish outfits.”
“Structural bustiers in gored hips style. Full lace midi dresses beautifully revealing the back. Gracefully contoured bodysuits with posh neckline detail made of Swarovski Elements. Diaphanous see through camisole with ample tulle pleats. ‘Vamporama’ bodysuits garnished with elastic straps. Mini dress in lace with built in satin bodysuit. These are the key elements of a season that take boudoir apparel to an extended level of sophistication, converting lingerie into borderline pieces between underpinnings and central items of an outfit.”
The colours of I.D. Sarrieri for SS13 are the things that excite me. Alongside dramatic black, soft hues of lucite green, dusty jade, rose and lilac feature. The brand have a wonderfully dynamic illustration of femininity I often try to capture in my Lingerie Lust posts – a little of the romantic Prima Ballerina, a little of the Bonnie (as in & Clyde), a little of the classic Hepburn. Mostly, I.D. Sarrieri have given me my Carrie Bradshaw moment. And I thank them for it
