Everything You Need To Know About Confezioni Crosby
While the play on masculine and feminine contrasts is nothing new in fashion, Confezioni Crosby’s take is notable for the subtle, stylish way in which designer Benedetta Antonelli, who started the line with her beau Jonathan Joory, merge the two elements. Her S/S 13 collection is no exception: traditional workwear silhouettes, like one-piece coveralls and a sturdy fisherman’s jacket, are crafted with a distinctively romantic touch. Rendered in lightweight fabrics such as linen and cotton, each piece is treated in a vintage colour palette and features sweet details like embroidered cutouts. The final looks pay homage to Antontelli’s Italian roots--chic and feminine without looking fussy, simple and tailored without being basic--and are surely destined for the wardrobes of Alexa Chung, Rachel Bilson, and Dianna Agron.
