TUESDAY – Romeo Gigli. Gentucca Bini is the new creative director for the Romeo Gigli brand. Backstage, she gives Nobel Prize laureate in Literature, Dario Fo a big kiss for coming to support her first ladies collection for Romeo Gigli. Gentucca’s father, designer Stefano Bini explains “Dario lives on the same floor as us. He takes interest in Gentucca’s creativity, determination and talent. She takes after my mother, Bruna the famous fashion designer of the seventies.

Gentucca Bini was not inspired by a historical icon for the collection. She studied “emergency” fashion, which appeared between 1935 and 1945, when the circumstances forced women to adapt men’s clothing and invent an elegant look that was the quintessence of style and a pure expression of individual desire. I loved her mix of prints with tweed and knitwear.
