FISICO BY CRISTINA FERRARI S/S 2009

This collection moved towards re-inventing fabric typically used for beach wear into  urban pieces.


 
The new bikini with pockets attached is one of the main new things going on in this concept;  bathing suits enriched with shiny applications and texture. Also the use of the tartan motif  pixel, with small swarovski crystals that transform this pret-a porter piece into a precious garment.


 
The colours of the collection, tone over tone with the safari and jungle green as main colours, mixed with a strong and bright violet, ruby and tuquoise, made this chromatic palette modern and feminine with a twist of ironic sensuality.


 
Soft dresses in jersey, with empire cut, in violet and safari’s tones that embrace the body in a harmonic way; trousers with a touch of the seventy’s and playful patch effect in vivid colours become a mix of different fantasies in this gypsy-chic style.


 
A terrace mood is competed by the turquoise bathrobe-overalls in chenille, with an open back, showing her idea of the Talitha Getty of our time, combining a beach fabric with big bags just perfect for a walk in the city during the day. For the evening, she shows a little more elegance with long dresses, also taking the bikini with glowy applications as part of the outfit.
