This season's key influence is
Imperial Rome and the atmosphere of delectable leisure in the shadows of the
Monumental buildings and statuesque
models with their arms uncovered, harmonious silhouettes against the background
of ancient ivory columns and abundance of flowers symbolizing Roman Empire's
magnificence - these are the main themes of the campaign.
Soft fabrics, body hugging jerseys and
cottons in patrician purples and plebeian greys are mixed here in relaxed,
versatile forms. A sports touch is a novelty for Ciriana, best known for its
rigidly smart dress code.
Roman greyhounds appearing in the
Impero campaign, which were historically brought to Europe by Julius Cesar from
Cleopatra's Egypt are suggestive here. They say of Ciriana shifting towards
athleisure, the absolutely main trend.
