Il Natale dei Cento Alberi d'Autore

FLAPPER

albero natale 2017

 

La frangia utilizzata nel passato per gli abbigliamenti ecclesiastici e militari entra negli anni venti a far parte della moda quando le donne un po’ sfrontate cominciano ad accorciare le gonne alle ginocchia e a tagliare i capelli.
Erano chiamati gli “anni ruggenti”, l’era del jazz e del charleston!
In questo periodo nacque la moda delle cosiddette flapper-girls, contraddistinta, fra l’altro, da abiti con frange di stoffa, che al ritmo della musica jazz ipnotizzavano, con l’ondulare delle frange ogni uomo nelle vicinanze.
La frangia diventa negli anni settanta tra i must più significativi, in quanto pur essendo un dettaglio hippie, con il giusto abbinamento riesce a dare un tocco in più all’outfit, più casual-chic, donando sicuramente un carattere deciso ai capi d’abbigliamento, regalando movimento e adattandosi perfettamente a chi ha uno spirito un po’ libero e anticonformista e ama vestire in modo ricercato.
Flapper sarà proprio il nome di una linea di borse della nuova Collezione WSN 2018/19, dal fascino vintage ma con un tocco di contemporaneità che KILESA vuole rappresentare nel suo ALBERO D’AUTORE.
