Port Zienna

Verve Fashion Shows

          Port Zienna AW18 collection shows Francesca Canepa’s affinity for couture draping and shape manipulation. Each piece of a predominantly black and white showing played with straight lines, asymmetrical draping, or classical shapes.


          While blacks, whites and shades in between focus on how blacks pieces rest in a white field, a sense of austerity continues with the simplicity of dresses, long coats in minimal pieces. While traditional couture draping suggests the gathering to emphasize the bodies shape, Canepa’s draping emphasizes a fluidity of movement beneath a simple fall of cloth.
