You know the tulle skirt wearing Annie Lennox on stage with David Bowie during the concert in tribute to Freddie Mercury? It was 1992, she showed up with a spectacular black tulle and a silver shirt and at the end, on the Under Pressure notes, she bowed with this skirt that seemed to float her like the petals of a flower.
Elegant, scenic, irreverent the tulle skirt even then did its figure … Because fashion is known, does not invent almost nothing but resumes, inspired and often repeats leaders who have made history in the past.
This is the case of tulle, friend of the woman since the 50’s, a time when femininity had maximum expression both in the clothes that the accessories. Inspired by the classic tutu Degas model, the tulle skirt made cyclically peep into the world of fashion, each time with the idea of being a novelty. And here again this year especially strong combinations: with leather jacket as wearing Chiara Ferragni, with denim shirt as proposed by Dsquared, with high heels or gladiator sandals.
From Hollywood stars to rock queens of the 80s such as Madonna and Cindy Lauper, the gloves are an consolidated element of fashion. Legend has it that the goddess Venus, running in the woods of Mount Olympus, she fell putting her hands on a bush of thorns and she scratched her hands. The Graces, then, they sewed very thin bandages around her fingers and her palm so that the gauze adhere perfectly. Thus were born the gloves. In the history the gloves, as pure ornament, date back to the ancient Egyptians. While the Romans, harassed by the idea of convenience, they used these accessories mainly to protect your hands.
From the ninth century, however, the glove becomes a wedding gift for women, and throughout the Middle Ages remain a and thus a sign of prestige. The the binomial glove-femininity, then, is an ancient concept but still dominates the catwalks of some of the most famous designers. We show you how the emerging talents Msgm, Marcobologna e L72, interpret the use of gloves. From classic lines to models with eccentric and unusual details, lined, unlined, fur or silk in a huge variety of colors, the important thing is to dare!! A glove completely changes the intentions of our style and gives verve to dresses too classic or embellishing a more casual look, certainly, an added value to our personal style.
