AltaRoma – Explore new horizons

“Bound opposites together in a unified tension, which is like that of a lyre, where a stable harmonious sound emerges from the tension of the opposing forces that arise from the bow bound together by the string.”

Altaroma, just ended on the 31st of January, proposed a multitude of visions about how we can define “in fashion”. Definitely the innovation brought by the emerging designers was the core of this edition. Quattromani started the 3 days marathon inside Coin Excelsior concept store. The Massimo Noli and Nicola Frau duo revisited the 70’s inspired lines colouring the women with pink and yellow Pantones, mixing volumes and shape describing a different and new woman.
