When you look through a kaleidoscope, you are immediately fascinated by the variety of colours and diverse shapes that arrange themselves in constantly new ways – a new image is created, no matter the perspective. For AIGNER Creative Director Christian Beck, this diversity and multifaceted nature represents various possibilities for individuality. The kaleidoscope pattern is the highlight and starting point for the collection – it continues through out like a red thread and is reflected, sometimes a little more or a little less succinctly, in selected models. The graphic shapes and patterns are depicted in a wide variety of colours, as well as using metal appliqué and in an implied form in fastenings and decorative elements.
The mood of the season takes its inspiration from two important eras: the late 70’s for colors and materials and the 90’s with a wink to Disco Flair and Studio 54 as far as silhouettes are concerned. The result is at the same time surprisingly glam and cool yet incredibly chic and feminine. The colours – bold plum, fresh mauve, sober tan and gentle smoke grey – are broken up with coloured spots such as lime, lapis green, pink and cranberry red and give the collection a real feeling of summer.
As far as materials are concerned: tulle, jeans, a lot of leather (velour and nappa) is enriched by embroidery details, finished in ornamental border or frills. Dresses with burn out geometrical pattern in velvet devoré, long fluid dresses, sparkling disco pants and sequins on tops are only a few of the collection’s highlights: the range of opportunities provides plenty of scope for variation and everyone can find something to express their personality.
Accessories have their word to say this season too: very opulent jewelry with Swarovski stones in matching colours invade rings and big hanging and clips earrings. Three different forms of shoes enhance the variety of this collection with flat styles, mules with heels and classic pumps: all have a pointed front either with coloured velvet or cork.
As for every season, AIGNER bags are true highlights to fall in love with.
Some bags are specially designed for the show like the Tiny Tin bag. It is an absolute eye-catcher: these small hanging bags formed like cans in many colour versions feature the kaleidoscope pattern in gold details. You open this can as you would untwist a can.
Another model is a very clean and classy clutch with central and extravagant frill details which perfectly matches the outfits. There are glamourous versions like a sparkling look in different colours, with the kaleidoscope pattern and a two-tone combination.
With the large crystal A-Logo as a fastening, Pina skillfully picks up the characteristic logo of the brand either with velvet or glittering. In addition, a striking metal edge on the base gives it a very sophisticated and precious twist.
Highlights in a gold and cork mix or in pure velvet make the Bella bag the new must-have! This outstanding bag is available in two different sizes.
Beloved Carla bag is reissued with the kaleidoscope pattern, big multicolor Swarovski stones in different shapes on fastening as well as cloth as an additional handle make it a masterpiece.
For the fashion show, signature bag Cybill proposed in a very special version with many multicolour Swarovski stones at the upper edge. Colours like Mauve, Lime and Smoke are combined for the patchwork optic.
