The Maria Aristidou Fall/Winter 2019/20 knit collection is intended to be an ode to “Clair de Lune,” the mesmerizing light of the moon. The latest line of Cyprus-designed and made embroidered garments, feminine jumpsuits, and dizzying patterns made its runway debut during the July season of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. Each of these glamorous designs celebrates the mystery, romance, and majestic spirit of celestial bodies.
“Looking up into the night sky you feel motionless and mesmerized as you fall prey to the moon’s charm,” the designer shares in her show notes.
“Whether it is crescent or full, you bear witness to an eternal celestial struggle for dominance between light and darkness,” the designer added. “The moon’s power and its magnetism are transcended to us through its light. It is this very moonlight that, like an invisible veil, dresses up the night and sets the mood. Whether it falls upon an ocean, a desert or upon a woman’s body it inspires romanticism, a feeling of mystery, elegance and seduction, a fascination with the female form.”
The Maria Aristidou brand is known for its custom, unique, and luxurious fabrics, and this collection showcases how exquisite the detailing can be. French and Italian yarn materials – including wool, viscose, lurex, cotton, silk, and velvet – were all used in this line, which offers delicately hand-embroidered, set strong and durable pieces.
