Italian designer Roberta Furlanetto’s work reminds me a little of Madeleine Vionnet. The final pieces look world’s apart, but their approach to fabric seems very similar. While Vionnet used draping to create amazingly elegant pieces, Furlanetto uses folds and pleats to create garments free of seams. Her Autumn/Winter 2010 collection has both sculptural, minimalistic pieces and gorgeously romantic dresses. They are as hard-working as they are beautiful, some of the jackets can be taken apart and transformed into a gilet or a bolero while some of the dresses with sleeves can be transformed into tube dresses.
