Punk Queens is not the name of an Alexander McQueen’s collection, but the name chosen by Antonio Grimaldi for his latest haute couture collection. He took inspiration from the French poem Hymne à la Beauté by Charles Beaudelaire. A timeless beauty, as absolute as love that knows no boundaries, genders or barriers. The poet’s words run like a golden thread through Antonio Grimaldi’s Fall/Winter 2018/19 couture collection.
Visual emotions for the contemporary punk queens and style icons that embrace a dark charm brings forward to the catwalk the sensual protagonist, honouring the Elizabethan and Victorian elegance of the English noblewomen with garments of linear and essential cuts. Minimal embroidery in fil coupé with plaques, chandelier like crystals on long dresses, appliques with plumage, sequins in velvet and leather.
