Aalto FW 2018 Collection
Contrasts are at the heart of the collection, reflecting how the opposite forces of reality and fantasy intertwine in our lives. The emotion-driven inspirations are translated into surprising, sculptural distortions appearing on seemingly classic garments. Cropped and twisted legs, sleeves and shapes in tailoring come in thick wools, vintage-inspired striped silk and bubbly purple silk jacquard. On fluid jerseys, bold cuts create unexpected effects when the fabrics flow against the moving body. The clash of feminine and technical is explored in the draped shirts and dresses where straps and adjustable tunnels allow for a feminine play with volume.
