Azzaro fall/winter 2013 collection is the second one by the new artistic direction.
Very chic and reminiscing of Old Hollywood glamour, the clothes are perfectly tailored and of good taste. Dark colors meet jewels and rhinestones resulting in a glamorous finish.
The color palette is dark so as not to compete for the viewer’s attention with the numerous crystals and jewels incorporated to the garment. Azzaro differs from other Italian brands by choosing subtlety over spectacularity, good taste over shallow arrogance.
The gowns made of silk have very beautiful silhouettes and the richness of the design comes from the details on the halterneck and the back which are both rhinestone encrusted. Subtlety at its peak.
Jewels are to be found at many places of the clothes. On a dress, they have their usual function as decorations. On a sweater or a sweater dress, they structure the clothes since they are found on side buttons. On a fur coat, they are details only recognizable by a trained eye. Overall, Azzaro chooses to blur the lines between evening and day-wear and the clothes are versatile.
Many accessories are found in this collection and they also translate very well to both day and evening-wear. The leather goods and shoes are of great quality (the softness of the suede on the single sole pumps is mesmerizing) and the jewelry is pure and very shiny, as the stones are either black or white.
