A woman of the 1930s, thinking about the far-off year 2000 in strongly futuristic terms, would probably have imagined ladies clothed in strange attire driving cars swooping through the air... In reality women’s way of dressing hasn’t changed all that much. Even if the trend is increasingly towards sportier, more comfortable and wearable clothing, the great cornerstones of the art of style have remain intact.
In the new millennium the fur coat is a more exclusive, distinctive dream. For the lengths, half measures disappear and the preference is either for short, barely covering the hips, or very long. Sleeves can be three-quarter length, the furs are super luxurious, colour is obligatory. And there’s a new way of wearing them, even over jeans, for young women who approach this garment with curiosity. Fur regains ground, it’s the challenge of luxurious simplicity: exhibitionism is rejected, naturalness becomes a basic principle. Today’s fur is lively, sometimes witty, incisive and decidedly essential. It doesn’t weigh on the wearer or make her feel how important it is, but it is important, unquestionably. It is conscious of a woman’s everyday needs and is able to make her young and sophisticated, modern and ironic.
The collections are increasingly bold and dazzling, as illustrated by this original light-blue fur. The model wears an extravagant garment with nonchalance, created for a woman who wants to recognize herself in relation to the current fashion, to achieve a splendid self-assurance. The almost sporty cut slims her, the neck trim provides animation, while the pastel colour enhances the whole.
The women of 2000 don’t fly in space, don’t have talking robots at home and don’t wear form-fitting silver bodysuits. But they still choose the classic innovation of carlotivioli furs.
