'Sakuran' inspires Verónica Moncho Lobo for Autumn/Winter
09
Jun '11
Verónica Moncho Lobo is a name to commit to memory. The Argentinean-born designer is now calling London home from her new flagship boutique/studio on Elizabeth Street, right next door to the nation's beloved milliner, Philip Treacy. Verónica's striking autumn/winter 2011/12 collection is a prêt-a-porter line of cocktail dresses and evening gowns complemented with key pieces including sharp coats and capes.

The detailed simplicity of the line captures the concept of woman being completely ready to walk out the door and conquer the world. Combining inspiration from Spain and Japan, the predominant blaze of red reflects the Spanish corridas de toro, while the blend of colors and silhouettes carries a distinct “Sakuran” feel.

The collection conveys a strong source of red, the vibrant colour in which the collection was born. With a potent tie to Spain, the range hints of the famous running of the bulls and the capote or cloak, with which the torero confronts the bull. Red represents the boldness to go one step further in terms of attitude, look, and cut, and for the first time, Verónica has chosen to infuse leather amongst her choice of fabrics. Above all, the collection remains feminine, true to the handwriting of Verónica Moncho Lobo.

The leather is tempered with a sophisticated trim of crystals, pearls and feathers, softening the range. The collection is growing in variety and this season sees an addition of structured jackets and organza-trimmed coats, and introduces two separate pieces: a printed silk satin top and a pair of sequined crepe stretch trousers. Wool is always present in Verónica Moncho Lobo's autumn/winter collections, not only for outerwear but also for dresses, combined with silks and tulle, constructed with a unique flowered texture.

The film “Sakuran”, directed by photographer Nina Minagawa, has also inspired the color choices, theme and print selection. The choice of silk satin in bright colors and confident designs recall the Asian theme of the “Sakuran” landscape, red being the predominant colour of the film. The new silk evening gowns are a fusion of the kaftan and the kimono. While the kaftan suggests the amount of fabric used as a base to construct the new shapes, Verónica looks toward the kimono to give shape and flatter the silhouette, tailoring the collection to fit the body. The overall premise creates a beautiful, flattering and unique collection that can be worn effortlessly.

Verónica Moncho Lobo was born and raised in the northwestern city of Salta in Argentina, a city founded in 1582 flanked by colonial and neo-classical architecture, with a healthy measure of museums, theatres and art galleries. Educated in both her home country and in America with a focus on Fine Arts, Verónica trained in fashion design at the Parsons School of Design in New York, graduating in 2001.

Verónica is the daughter of a highly artistic mother, who provided Verónica with a strong proclivity for the arts, and Verónica has always had a deep admiration for couture.
