Hey there my lovelies,
Welcome back to my Blog! Happy Sunday 🙂
Today I come to you with a special bonus post, an event post, one which is rather at heart since the C&R show was my first ever show I saw during Malta Fashion Week. It been two years!!! I have already talked about this collection in another post here when the talented duo Charles and Ron showcased this collection during New York fashion week.
Show was set in the historical Birkirkara Basiclica square, churchyard set with instruments and two local bands, a slight breeze and dim light, making it the perfect setting to ease into a sense of pride, emanating from the surroundings full of history and culture. It is obviously evident that both designers are in love with our little rock, the Mediterranean and our rich Maltese heritage. Every C&R piece, is a piece of culture and makes you #proudtobemaltese.
This beautiful collection was inspired by ecclesial colour schemes and the traditional decorative lights seen on the facade of St. Helen’s Basilica during the feast. Colour mood ranges between Cardinal pink, warm red and saffron yellow (latter made it to the Pantone’s colour report for fall 2016) that when mixed together create a graphic and contemporary colour block that together with the stripe pattern makes for a very delicate and stunning collection. It was nicely noted the additional rich classic camel (which is the perfect nude colour) to highlight the classical and staple black pieces. The new bag design is another stunner – said design is based on the bag style that Charles and Ron designed for HRH Queen Elizabeth II last year.
Needless to say, I wish to own every single piece as I cannot decide what I liked best, but for sure I need to personally visit the shop to have a closer look. I also loved the additional male items which were not seen the first time this collection was showcased during New York Fashion week.
There was no #frow for me for this show, but just being invited to this event was enough for me as I was waiting to witness this flawless collection first hand.
Thank you Charles and Ron allowing us to witness this collection.
Full collection is available at Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa in Attard, Charles & Ron, 58D, Republic Street, Valletta store and online.
Until next time,
