For the Fall Winter 2011 collection, Aperlaï explores the universe of geometric essentiality and the power of colour. Art is once again at the root of the inspiration: from the cubism of Picasso to the radical reduction and essential colours of Malevich and I LOVE it!
Knight, Lock, Armour, Bucklehead, Angle…some names representing Aperlaï's collection. Traits of patent leather, chromatic contrasts, warm and dark shades. The stitch, when visible, defines the shapes, creating interlocking games and asymmetrical overlaps.
Aperlaï subtly grooving the seventies with a contemporary and sharp femmininity.
Clashing the seventies: visions of Edie Sedwick wearing pastels and exotic skins.
Experimenting with colours, shapes and details, both on a strong structure and a cheeky stiletto.
In a wide range of textures: suede, python, pony, napa leather, velvet, hairnet; all are finely treated by Italian craftsmen in Florence. The collection of 50 styles goes from asymmetrical sandals to over the knee boots.
The walk is confident, audacious. The signature is graphic, pure Aperlaï.
