Luxury fashion house Ports 1961 previewed its SS15 Womenswear collection at the Corso Venezia 16, in Milan, and the overall mood was one of contrasts.
Inspired by the two-spirited Greek goddess Artemis – on one hand strong and warrior-like, and on the other, sensual and feminine – creative director Fiona Cibani has created a collection featuring the delicate appeal of fluid, transparent silks and the grounding effect of metal accents and precise tailoring. Sexy, short kilt and wrap skirts have evolved from FW14. Wide trousers are rethought with a detachable peplum on the waistline, creating an elongated ‘lift’ effect. Cropped pants add variety with the latter in a sheer silk-cotton voile.
A sensual colour palette of crisp white combined with ivory balances pale rose pinks and soft taupe, which are all anchored by the precision of pure black. The combination of iridescent and matt, as-well-as transparent and solid colours add a undeniable sense of excitement and sex appeal to a collection that teeters boldly on the verge of being ‘done’.
