Luigi Borbone, Handpainted Simplicity, Altaroma FW 14/15


Luigi Borbone’s flowing caftans, in patterned silks, Swarovski elements and whimsically handpainted Latex, opened Altaroma on Saturday afternoon at the Palazzo Corsini, a baroque palace in Rome’s arty Trastevere neighborhood. Borbone, trained as an architect and studied fashion at Central Saint Martins before returning to Rome where he was first featured by Altaroma in 2012.


Borbone favors the simplicity of pure, geometric shapes and in this collection was inspired by iconic women from the Middle Ages and what he calls a “distrubing” Marie Antoinette. Clara Tosi Pamphili art directed the show that featured original music from Diego Buongiorno and new French chanteuse Loane.
