Carducci – #CTFW 2011

Carducci’s spring/summer collection at the Cape town Fashion Week was a blend of soft pastel palettes, plaid patterns, and soft florals on sheer fabrics. The menswear collection is for the a bold man that won’t shy away from pink and a little femininity. Classic double breasted plaid jackets were set off very nicely with colourful bows and skinny ties. The collection exhibited remarkable tailoring with impressive attention to detail when accessorising with trilby hats, colourful bow ties and pocket squares and patterned duffel bags.

The women’s collection was just a pleasing to the eyes but with a deeper and strong colour palettes. Orange, red and deep pink were the order of the day. And we saw the exceptional tailoring in the women’s suits as well with asymmetrical print dresses in soft sheer fabrics. Floppy straw hats and belted suits were the accessories of choice that yielded a sophisticated collection. In all, the entire collection could be described as a very tasteful treat.
