Byblos: an exceptional collection, that was born from speed, from inebriation, from synthesized figures that flash before our eyes when we’re riding a motorbike, free and happy.
This is what Manuel Facchini, creative mind of the brand, said about the collection. Transformations of tones, shapes that extend until they almost become sketches, like murals observed from behind a metallic grill. Here’s the magic sensation evoked by Byblos’ défilé. Its colours, such as black, raspberry, cobalt blue, aqua green, rope, set the trends and, just like this collection’s essential geometric shapes, resemble a painting by Mondrian.
Horizontal stripes, perpendicular lines, sudden flashes of colour, alternated with incredible and soft shades. The Byblos’ woman represents the concept of 2.0, but don’t think that the collection doesn’t leave any room for romanticism and femininity. As a matter of fact, it is rich of flowery-patterns, reinvented through 3D patterns and decorations.
On the catwalk, it is possible to admire tunics, jackets and dresses that look like gardens in flower. Wool is essential. Shrugs and stoles become tricot multicoloured sculptures. The biker jacket is the high-light and is proposed in several models and styles, from the most simple and romantic ones to those with faux leather inserts.
Moreover the bomber is pop: super-colourful and inspired by Virginia’s street art. Mini dresses are embellished by decorations in sparkling faux leather.
Furs – which is something I love and I am very demanding about – were absolutely great and deserves a special mention: the designer proposed an ironic interpretation of this piece, thanks to spurts of colourful and metallic paint. «For a sparkling and techno bon-ton aesthetic, dedicated to uptown girls ready for the biggest journey of their life», said Facchini. I agree.
