Dancing ballerina

06 . 03 . 2018 by Redazione
Are you ready to dance? For the joy of all little girls, Spring Summer 2018 is inspired by the most delicate ballet étoiles,  lightness of tulle, luster of satin and soft colours such as white, blush and pink.

The spotlight is on the prima ballerina on stage, in a Bayadère, Giselle or Raymonda style. The perfect stage costumes? By Simonetta, of course, with tulle details and broderie anglaise, trimmings and ballet pumps and tip-tap shoes by Pretty Ballerinas or Monnalisa rhinestone and sequin encrusted evening tutus in delicate voile.

Il Gufo dancer twirls in a cotton and voile dress with a tone-one-tone peony appliqué. Chicco and Tommy Hilfiger offer skirts and demi tutus, while Le petit Coco proposes silk organza dresses and skirts that are ideal for both social events and any other day of the week (if combined with a simple T-shirt).

Flowers, flounces and silk are the sophisticated response offered by Dolce & Gabbana: a pirouette will  turn a knee-length skirt into a perfect circle.

You can almost hear the rustling of Mimisol dresses over the ballet music: thin straps and Odile black swan style black balloon skirt, competing with the much adored Odette. The task of Tartine et Chocolat, instead, is to bring colour back on stage, with a variegated palette that ranges from pure white to cherry red, with flashes of light given by shoes and accessories.


Vivetta Kids collection is fairytale inspired and carefree, with dreamy dresses in taffeta and sweetheart bodice.

But when you need to practice, warm up or  when the curtain closes, pointe shoes and tutus are abandoned in favour of practical clothes (but always on the same theme), such as the Kenzo bicolour dress, Esprit candy pink sweatshirts and Momino Ocra sandals . For summer, we expect a triumph of small details, where every nuance, piqué,  ballonné bring on a state of euphoria. A wardrobe that is beautiful to look at, to wear and to internalise: because we are always in need of lightness.
