An adventurous trip into the South American continent. A contemporary Betty Catroux. A muse, an inspiring woman with a great sense of style combined with an exuberant personality and refined sensibility. Nature excites her, she collects memories of countless countries and cultures. She absorbs rhythms, flavors and smells, which she reinterprets to constantly reinvent her world.
A couture-like approach informs the MARIO DICE Spring/Summer 2019 collection, which mix the designer’s signature intricate craftsmanship with flamboyant creativity. Evidenced by Denim elevated to reach new heights. An intricate patchwork of contrasting jean cloth recreates the portrait of Betty Catroux on a maxi dress featuring a plunging V-neck. The fashion icon’s face also appears on a T-shirt dress crafted from a range of stitched silk ribbon, which are printed with a wax-based technique, while precious crystal fringes draw a graphic tribal motif on a draped neckline jumpsuit.
