SAN ANDRES MILANO AUTUMN / WINTER 2016.17
A living trompe lʼoeil that winks at the touching glances and the clear and strong aesthetics of
the Mexican women from the indigenous community of Mazahua, identified with intense and
iconographic colors. This is the ideal scenario for San Andrés Milano woman to firmly move in
the next Autumn/Winter 2016-2017 collection.
The dresses made of cady and printed georgette dance to the rhythm of accordion and guitar
through the texture itself, embroidered with SWAROVSKI crystals, and thence take by hand the
elegant dresses with ruffles of feminine appeal, metaphorically evoking the wrinkles of an
entire life beating moments and feelings, dreams and illusions, fears and sufferings…
The “Mujer Mazahua” gratified by her deeply-rooted link with the aesthetics is enriched by a
feast of colors which strongly moves towards the Ethno-chic worlds close to the designer, who
stages his fuchsia pink and electric blue, emerald green and bright red and then turns the
gaze on the soothing worlds of black and beige before ending his imaginary journey with gold
and silver jacquard, made vibrant by the geometric design.
The must-have of this collection is the coat designed through an emotional dualism of wool
and mohair, with rich crystal detailing that grants the whole silhouette an immediate shine,
thoroughly embracing the fine prints of the collars in fox and mink which frame daring,
audacious, unwavering faces and expressions. Earrings crafted wit crystals
emphasize the importance of the accessory, by displaying an alternation of macro and micro
shapes which pave the way to the lace socks, in a sinuous design of ethics and aesthetics,
of fullness and emptiness, of appearance over the existence.
A real tribute to the extent of beauty, thus, to what the couturier Andrès Caballero wanted to
create in the new collection, offering a clear-cut ideal intended to last within a true and
authentic handcraft framework.
