Charlottenborg's winter lady

Italian fashion milieu will usher in a new brand established
by three quick-witted young women loftily named Charlottenborg.
The name comes from the Copenhagen castle, built in baroque style, 
which houses the Royal Danish Academy of Arts nowadays.

The tenderfoot brand's f/w 2011 collection was presented
in Florence at Pitti Woman precollection last week (a side event 
of Pitti Immagine Uomo opened by special guest designer 
Haider Ackermann - previous post here) showing
purebred shapes where the tradition of the quilted coat 
is reinvented with creativity and irony.

A canny transposition of an old style into a contemporary,
glamorous context: small tapered jackets all made in taffeta
and padded in real goosedown feathers with upper
back leather bands crossed.
Inside pockets, collars and cuffs are all in velvet.

A collection dedicated to the independent and purposeful 
metropolitan woman, the Charlottenborg winter lady.
