Isabel Benenato - A/W 2012-13

Leave a Comment

Born in Naples, Isabel Benenato was inspired by her mother, a tailor by profession, from whom she inherited her love of fashion.Having honed her creative skills in a number of ateliers and fashion schools in London, Isabel launched her eponymous label, showcasing her unique and experimental style. She debuted at the White Inside exhibition in 2008, as a womenswear line. The positive feedback she received allowed the designer to further articulate her ideas and, with an A/W 2011-12 collection, also the launch of a menswear line, appeared at Wow in Milan and Tranoï of Paris. Benenato’s sophisticated and minimalist creations outlive seasonal trends thanks to a dedication to rich materials and an undivided love for Italian craftsmanship. Experimenting with volume and asymmetry, her valuable yarns and leather are hand processed and treated to give a unique feel and weight.
Newest collection for A/W 2012-13 conveys modern minimalism, the same as the colors: black, white and natural tones.  Isabel Benenato proposes all natural yarns: cashmere and silk, alpaca, yak and mohair interpreted in various forms and gauges. The garments are concrete and are free of any extra decoration. A mix of knit and leather that evolve harmoniously time after time with vigor.
