La Jeune Fille
La Jeune Fille collection by Amotea is the wardrobe of a contemporary woman, an elegy of youth as an expression of the female soul. The collection expresses a way of living and dressing “according to nature”. Ralph Waldo Emerson says that “according to nature, nature always wears the colour of the spirit”, only through a peaceful communion with the environment an Amotea’s woman can express her profound essence. The name of the collection evokes Portrait de la jeune fille en feu by Celine Sciamma; during the film the main character tries to capture on canvas the spirit of youth of the portrayed girl. In the same way Diletta tries to freely describe the essence of contemporary feminity with a cosmopolitan, aristocratic style, that is transversal across occasions. The lookbook was shot in an apartment that recalls an artist’s studio with canvases and rugs. The garments have a sophisticated and minimalistic design and are divided into four capsules that well describe Amotea’s lifestyle: resort, denim, suit and evening. The curated designs are enhanced by research in soft-touch fluid materials: full-bodied cottons that take on colours of the sunset; technical organza in tartan print; comfortable denim for draped dresses; fringes that become an experimental fabric that brings to life dresses; silk, satin and cady of which suits are made of; tassels and cords that draw necklines on the back of evening dresses.
