F/W 2016 - 2017 Women's Collection Book
The Kiton womenswear autumn/winter collection is inspired by the desire to create a new type of daywear that combines casual clothing with high quality tailoring designed for women who are feisty, dynamic and independent. It is no coincidence that Melinda Gates, the wife of Bill Gates, chose the iconic Kiton jacket for last December’s cover of Forbes magazine.
The tradition of men’s tailoring, which has always been such a distinctive feature of Kiton worldwide, merges with the meticulous attention paid to enhancing the proportions of women and the feminine figure.
The collection originates from the concept of the Neapolitan home. In the three rooms adjoining the central reception room, the models interpret the new identity of Kiton woman. The first room is devoted to what is generally considered the quintessential aspect of the female universe: clothing. Models create a tableau vivant, wearing constantly changing combination of garments for a mix-and-match collection. The second room is typically Neapolitan and recreates the atmosphere of a traditional restaurant where the classical elegance of the Kiton brand blends with the harmonious atmosphere of Naples. The instinctive sense of good taste and beauty is masterfully reinterpreted in the last room which represents the most authentic aspect of tradition: Italian food. It is aimed at a woman who is ready for any moment of the day, from morning to evening, who can change her outfit simply by tinkering with her accessories.
