The lightweight pastel fabrics chase each other and combine playing with shapes and colors: silk and cotton create plissé waves or blossom into large flower accessories, organza fabrics form soft lines or geometric ones evoking a 1950’s style, whilst colored plain or patterned fabrics overlap classic eyelet embroidery to create a charming two-tone effect.
