For AW17 Miló Maria looks at contradictions in areas of design, colour and texture.
Opening with a traditional theme derived form Victorian costume, the research for the collection took Miló Maria on a creative journey, resulting in a completely opposing concept: fetish wear. This new direction adds a hint of femme fatal to her third collection, the first to feature knitwear.
Miló Maria has created garnments with high necked ruffled collars, oversized long cuffs and asymmetrical hems which are seen alongside patent leather jackets and skirts, offsetting the delicate knits with a conflicting sultry edge. Ribbon ties are a feature in the collection, seen as straps and wrapped around velvet cuffs, linking back to both the Victorian and fetish in-fluences.
