I’m over the moon to be showing you the first look at Aussie Italian fashion designer Nicola Finetti’s Spring/Summer 2010/11 Lookbook. Titled the Floriade Collection, it’s a massive lookbook (photographed by Helen White) filled with feminine silhouettes, a confection of champagne and pastel colours, mixed with some brights and of course wardrobe staples of black, creams and whites. We see sexy cocktail frocks with ruffles, there’s pleating, tulle and sheer panels and structured jackets and pants.
The Lookbook is so beautifully done and I love the butterfly broaches on the outfits dotted throughout … the name Floriade is derived from the Latin word Floriat, meaning “to design with flowers.”
Jennifer Hawkins is a big fan of Nicola Finetti, she was seated front row at his runway show for this year’s Rosemount Australian Fashion Week, along with Kate Waterhouse, Laura Csortan, Gracie Otto and Lyndsey Rodrigues. I wonder which designs Jen earmarked at RAFW for her wardrobe?
