“Everyone remembers Genny as a discreet and sophisticated luxury brand known for its top craftsmanship and artisanal heritage so this first collection respects the house’s tradition. It is designed for working women with multi-occasion agendas that need functional and elegant clothes,” says Gabriele Colangelo.
New life is breathed into the sartorial suit – a Genny staple – thanks to new cuts on the jacket, made with plush men’s wear fabrics such as grisaille. They are paired with graphic blouses in cotton organdie, silk crepe de chine and muslins, featuring an ethnic-geometric motif.
Male and female, the two souls of the Genny world, come together with rigor and sensuality.
Innovative and exclusive materials developed by Colangelo include a silk and raffia blend that traces a zebra design and a trompe l’oeil print reminiscent of a Kilim carpet.
A dull gold jersey shell, instead, plays tribute to the silver mesh designed by Gianni Versace during his tenure at Genny from 1974 to the early Nineties.
Last but not least, Colangelo developed an ultra-light and summery version of Astrakhan fur with a zebra effect used for pencil skirts, coats, bags and shoes.
My favourite look is this royal blue tribal effect piece which moves away from the neutral tones of the rest of their pieces. The way the silk falls makes no secret of its luxuriousness and the double front; print and plain gives a nod to the colour blocking and prints that were everywhere at the shows this year.
Stylish ones though…
Get ready for Autumn.

3 Trends I’m Loving This Summer…
And think you should too!
They are so laid back and casually stylish which makes them incredibly difficult to get wrong!

Whenever I buy new trends I tend to neglect my bottom half, instead opting for the basics like jeans, skirts or chinos – these patterned shorts can go with my basic wear this summer and incorporate the trend in a new way than before – great for festivals too!
