Catherine Malandrino MBFW AW13 “Le Normandie”

Inspired by the elegant lines of French Art Deco’s Ruhlmann, Catherine Malandrino presented clean and graphic shapes for Fall 2013. A soft, yet graphic celebration of geometric shapes and craftsmanship manifested throughout this luxurious and elegant collection. Elongated silhouettes were illustrated by funnel-neck collared coats, mid-calf pencil skirts and glove sleeves in a blend of leather, cashmere knits, rubberized wool and double silk satin crepe. Elegant and sophisticated, these were classically beautiful pieces that have become the staple of the Malandrino brand.
