MADRID, Mar 27, 2009 / FW/ — A woman prepared to face difficulties inspires Carmen March for the winter of 2010. Inspired by the 1940s, an era wherein women took an active part in reconstructing a war-torn society marks the starting point of this new proposal.
Shoulders and waists highlighted by weighty fabrics such as bouclé wool, felt and pailletes draw a powerful silhouette, affording presence and visual force.
In contrast, soft, flowing fabrics such as silk gauze in orage print, lamé, rice taffeta and lace shape the part of the outfit which is in more direct contact with the skin, remembering that, even though the garments flaunt great external strength, the subtlest and most delicate part is reserved for intimacy.
Accessories, inspired by the shocking, exquisite personality of Diana Vreeland, style icon par excellence, specifically and especially during the 40s, with her taste for the unusual and her eagerness to create a unique, personal style, are constructed using shapes and elements from the animal world.
