Joburg's hottest fashionista's gathered in Sandton, to preview Fabiani’s male and female Spring/Summer collections which have been described as bold, refined and sharp.
Guests were treated to an exclusive experience of summer sensations as botanical elements and sensual tropic flowers such as orchids and palm leaves were combined to create Fabiani’s high summer Tropical Affair collection.
Fabiani recently debuted the female side of their range and their Le Smoking female tuxedo suit was inspired by the 1966 YSL movement to recreate and establish the androgynous style. The Le Smoking collection contains various masculine silhouettes and elements like shirting, tailored suiting and accessories.
“When styling masculine pieces with feminine items such as stilettos, silk blouses and decorative bows, it represents the androgynous style that Fabiani wants to achieve through empowering women,” said Fabiani Marketing Manager, Lyle Paul in a statement.
Further to launching Fabiani’s SS17 collections, guests were also presented the second G-Star Elwood X25 collection – an ongoing celebration of unreserved self-expression and creativity.
Drawing on inspiration from across the globe, Pharrell reimagined the classic 3D denim in 25 bright prints that meld motifs from the natural world – from poison dart frogs and butterfly fish to leopards and whale sharks – with renderings from diverse cultures: including ornate Indian paisley prints and Japanese kimono embroidery. A first in SA, consumers can pre-order their G-Star RAW Elwood X25 exclusively at www.fabiani.co.za .
Fabiani’s SS17 collections & G-Star RAW Elwood X25 are available in Fabiani flagship stores nationwide from 16 October 2017.
