“A kiss on the hand may be quite continental” sang the first lady of Moulin Rouge as a veil of feathers was being drawn revealing her voluptuous figure on the dance floor. That was the image that sprang to mind the minute I felt the luxurious feathered pieces on Egidio’s winter 2015-2016 collection.
Not being able to resist that addictive smooth touch and luring shiny texture, I just had to try on my best picks. And they were far from few…The outcome? My resistance point hit zero, as soon as the divine creamy softness took over my body.
As a classic Mediterranean who cannot escape the limitations of her curves, I admit I was initially skeptical about the baggy lines I had seen in the online lookbook. But the skillfully designed looser part was actually concentrated round the waist and brought everything in balance as it fell tighter over my hips.
F.Egidio has come up with a pop-up showroom concept that unmasks his next collections and offers a unique opportunity to ladies who wish to try out and pre-order pieces at very tempting prices before the collection hits the retail market.
The size of the samples one can try at 178 Natienlaan in Knokke until Sunday evening is 38, so it covers the average body. Ladies with larger sizes could face some limitations in terms of options. However, it is quite clear to me that the specific designs are best realized in smaller sizes. The designer probably aims at ultimate quality, as well as a small production to maintain a VIP service for his clients.
I have already ordered a wonderful ink blue dress, as well as a camel shade set of top and pants, and I am looking forward to July to make my very first appearance on cool evening Zoute soirées. Will you join me?
