Inspired to some vintage pictures which portraits a very young and feminine Isabella Rossellini with her mother, Ingrid Bergman, who’s famous for her androgynous allure, the FW 2016-17 collection by CO|TE, showed yesterday at Milan Fashion Week, tries to blend these two strong and different personalities. The uniqueness of the two icons of style characterizes “Double Street Couture”, a street and casual collection with couture accents.

The Seventies inspirations meet military theme. Very shaped clothes are mixed with denim, made precious thanks to coloured crystals.

Delicate floral patterns are mixed with military ones. Textiles with dark tones, which could be used in menswear, are used together with laces and silks, embroidered with maxi-dots of sequins.

CO|TE designers succeeded in creating a collection focused on the ambivalence of masculine-feminine, giving life to very contemporary clothes.
