Darkness creeps into the garden, where the scent of the nocturnal blooms begins to fill the crisp night air. The Serpentine collection by Atelier Grandi evokes a quiet romance with it’s signature mix of soft structured lines, satin sheen, and a touch of scintillating details inspired by the work of Austrian painter, Gustav Klimt, who was known for using gold ornamentation and mosaic details in his most famed masterpieces of femme fatales. There’s just enough to capture a crowd’s attention but not so much as to overshadow the wearer’s intrinsic charms. The Grandi woman knows how to turn heads and quietly draw you in with her mystique.
It is the latest addition to the Canadian fashion brand’s extensive line of art-inspired couture collections. “Garments are never designed for sheer appeal”, says designer Grandy, “every collection is steeped in stories and backed up by substance. That depth is what turns fashion into art, and ultimately what distinguishes a designer from a sea of people who design.”
The Serpentine collection features pieces suited for cocktail parties, launch events, society soirées, and the red carpet.
