Chiara Boni: La Petite Robe S/S 2017


Italian taste met with the chic style of the Upper East Side for Chiara Boni’s Spring/Summer 2017 “La Petite Robe” collection. The line up stunned with its refinement, timeless magnetism and luxurious femininity. The presentation clearly read as a homage to Fifties’ sensibilities, with multiple references to the era in color, tailoring and silhouette.

Sophisticated allure of Chiara Boni’s lady lies in a blend of the brand’s modern and practical attitude with impeccable elegance of the traditional cuts. La Petite Robe collection offers hyper feminine dresses in romantic styles, featuring tight bodices, flared tulle skirts and charming embroideries. Particular accent was made on necklines and sleeves, coming in a range of variations – some resembling petals, some featuring pleats, cut outs, and puffed shapes. Navy blue and white combination is crisp and timeless – embellishments of various forms of white collars and white panels look very fresh indeed.

There is a substantial infusion of prints in the collection, such as a stunning feather pattern inspired by a sketch from prestigious Magnani Rocca Foundation’s archives.

The line up is an ode to quintessential femininity. Everything from shape to fabric, to color is an ovation to the feminine aesthetic. Color palette is as wide, as it is rich: soft shades of powder and quartz pink are shown side by side with fresh blues, vibrant patterns and punctuations of graphic black.

Since 2007, the year of the brand’s establishment, La Petite Robe gained universal acclaim. Loyal customers and celebrities follow the Chiara Boni’s vision year after year, marveling and enjoying her signature “discretely sexy” dresses and separates that enhance a woman’s natural beauty.

This year Chiara Boni also introduced a collection of accessories. Lady-like slingbacks and ballerinas were created as perfect pairings to the dresses, and were embellished with tiny bows and embroideries. Elegant clutches and small shoulder bags in rich jacquard fabric reflected the spirit of the brand. The line up also included a collection of swimwear.

In the United States, the brand’s offering can be found in Nieman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
