Each season designers and seamstress work together and develop new creative ideas for the collection from Il Gufo. Spring Summer 2020 is no exception: garments are designed about one year before when we finally see them displayed in boutiques.
Il Gufo SS20: Made in Italy with love
It all starts with a flower, the most iconic element of the beautiful season, which rests delicately on a trapeze-cut dress in jersey Milan point: it is a fuchsia geometric hydrangea with long stem.
Each step is meticulously studied, from the die to the machine seam of the six layers of fabric that make up the flower. Finally, the hydrangea is sewn to the dress.
From an art masterpiece to a refined decoration of high value: everything revolves around needle, thread and knot.
Hand embroidery plays complex roles beyond the decorative and it is always surprising to observe the renewed passion of the seamstress for their work season after season, year after year. Probably the most iconic preservation of craftsmanship in the contemporary world.
As example the Spring Summer 2020 baby dress in white cotton poplin entirely lined with voile with beautiful flowers and a small hand-embroidered bee.
Or the blue and white striped dress in flamed cotton fabric with flowers and sand-colored stems embroidered entirely by hand.
You can buy Il Gufo SS20 in the best Italian and foreign boutiques, both physical and online, and in the official online shop.
