FALL WINTER 2018
The era of restlessness has returned: mysterious, provocative, playful, energetic and enchanting.
The LE TONERRE collection undergoes a transformation, shaping forms, style and volumes in the direction of change and maturity, both from the structural point of view (higher positioning) and from the stylistic one (more mature, complete). It assumes more and more the connotation of a first line, maintaining and consolidating a young, fresh line, directed to a girl constantly looking for a sophisticated outfit, but also to the woman who loves feeling valued, important, trendy, cool, refined, never banal and not compliant with the usual trends proposed by the fashion system.
GOTIC ROMANTIC CHIC -DISCO ROCK:
The style is characterized by a fairytale game, a balance between romance and obscurantism, between the sacred and the profane between light and dark, color and non-color.
Gothic in colors and shapes, like the presence of black, declined in all fabrics, of the blue as a vivid color of the night and of the amaranth that brings back to the blood, to the carnality, to the body.
Ultimately, a right mix of gothic and romantic is represented, but a breaking element emerges that has always characterized Le Tonerre: the disco theme, nocturnal, glitter, shimmering, mainly dedicated to the evening, to the ever green fun (studio style 54) This mood takes shape thanks to the crystal print, to all its reflections of light, of colored diagonals, also developed in jacquard fabrics in embroidery, lurex and sequins.
The Donna Collection is rich in details: zip, rouches, appliqués, embroidered trimmings and lurex knit. The variety of stringers and locks, the interplay of crosses inserted into the garments themselves, embellished with real fur inserts, the transparencies of the devoré fabric, the chiffon, the embroidered tulle make the collection very sexy and feminine. Elaborated fabrics, jacquard lurex, embroidered tulle and silks are skilfully mixed as if they were patches. The mix of fabrics, embroidered dresses and the insertion for the first time, made of leather and real fur, contribute to making the LE TONERRE Collection more similar to a first line and a medium-high positioning of the Brand.
As for the Man collection, it develops with the mood and the same elements of the woman declined in a masculine key; where possible the fabrics, the workings, the prints and the colors are intentionally homogeneous. Le Tonerre Uomo presents an evolution from the point of view of positioning, so it becomes more elegant, more refined and less "street", while maintaining its usual originality. In the collection the distinctive elements are consolidated: the "black face" print, the logo print, the printed covers and all the typical details of the Le Tonerre style.It is definitely an elegant man, who loves to be noticed, who prefers to be trendy and cool , but at the same time glamor and refined.
VOLUMES - SHAPE:
Wide volumes, wheels, curls and draperies, asymmetries, staggered lengths, flared dresses with large volumes, but also sheath dresses, tight and screwed, that draw the silhouette for women who love to emphasize the sinuous shapes. Even the jackets are screwed and straight, but always with dry shoulders that lengthen the figures to make them comparable to Gothic images. To complete the woman look, 60s bag dresses with ruches and straight sleeves that make the figure feminine and elegant. The most representative part is definitely outlined by long dresses, knee-length and short, but always elegant not for everyday use, for a woman loves being sophisticated and refined, for cocktails, in the evening, important events.The evening effect is also represented by Men's and Women's tuxedos, trousers, shirts and tops that make it possible to build and customize a more androgynous look, which gives a nod to our historical DNA (no gender sex, no gender Collection) .
The Le Tonerre Man and Woman collections, from the AI'18 season, define two worlds built in parallel, conceived and proposed in distinct moods, based on the outputs, attitudes and market demands. Therefore, they outline two different identities. , two different projects, but always linked by consolidated common elements that act as a trait d'union.
