Colors, Cage, and Capes highlighted Joanna Mastroianni’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Inspired by her own garden and personal sanctuary, the designer created a collection bursting in colors of paradise, from hues of yellow green, violets, reds, magenta, and natural vines all woven into her design; taking fashion into a surreal “secret garden” fantasy.
I am always taken back season after season watching Joanna Mastroianni’s runway shows, I love the use of bold unexpected colors and the variety of figure flattering silhouettes that range from cocktail, to floor sweeping, to an exquisite tailored pant suit, and all the while still incorporating her signature ‘cage’ design that juxtapose feminine with strong masculinity very well. A colorful daytime wear look can easily transition into a subdued but elegant nighttime ensemble just with the addition of a cage cape.
Every season I expect this level of regal elegance from Joanna Mastroianni, and I am NEVER disappointed! Classic+Trendy+Chic for women of all ages and stages in life, and that’s what makes a designer into an ICON, and I do look forward to another season of beautiful designs.
