Wolfgang Joop has chosen Italian catwalks for showing his label Wunderkind for Spring Summer 2017 collection on the occasion of Milan fashion week, with the support of Cnmi-National Chamber of the Italian Fashion. Just a few months after the presentation in Corso Como 10 of Wunder Berlin, a special project of four capsules in collaboration with Comeforbreakfast, Giannico, Isa Arfen and Le Petitis Joueur.
Bon ton retro. It's the next hot season imagined by the famous German designer. A trip in a vintage wardrobe, which reveals its contemporary spirit through a sensual femininity. Among western details, from camperos to fringes, bravely in contrast with a polished and refined elegance made of transparencies, floral applications, embroideries, ruches and a wave of volant and plissé. Playing with the volumes of mini and midi skirts, contrived shoulder pads and balloon shapes.
To finish with waist belts and the precious sparkle of laminated shirts and dresses. A mood that is also reflected on the clothes designed for him, among squares and little squares, stripes, over length and optical effect prints.
Successful designer and artist, Wolfgang Joop designed for his label a collection that interprets and contaminates a bon ton elegance in an original and contemporary key. With a harmonious and smart styling. The all perfectly faithful to aesthetic and cultural codes of the brand.
