Monnalisa, the special event at the Corsini Garden

Giardino Corsini al Prato

Among the events around town on the occasion of Pitti Bimbo, the catwalk show-event from Monnalisa, which will be staged the evening of Thursday 22 June in the setting of one of the most beautiful gardens in Florence, at Palazzo Corsini

The Monnalisa SS collection is playful and effervescent. With a vaguely gipsy style, dresses have bayadère necklines and full, high-waist skirts with a cascade of ruches; they also come in lace with georgette frills or with a bodies in sequins and corolla skirts. The capes are unexpected-short and in lurex brocade with bell sleeves. Bombers are the main players: in a biker version with surprising floral embroidery or in a startlingly extra-light fabric. Flowers and prints triumph in joy, just like the seventies. The on-trend pattern is tropical with romantic touches of floral brocades.
