Ailanto Fall 2012 Fashion Show

MADRID – Ailanto presented their Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid. The line was inspired by Chinoiserie, or the idea of using Chinese-influenced elements in European style. This time though, the effect was mixed with contemporary motifs and Chinese rock music to add oomph to the show. Ailanto used ideas such as asymmetry, decoration, kimonos, traditional Oriental prints, and more details. Dresses and skirts were made of satin but also silk and tweed, moving between fluidity and structure using these Chinese elements and details. Knee length dresses which were modest but still trendsetting and jumpsuits with floral prints, oversize sleeves, and embellished collars were among some of the most stunning pieces in the collection.
