Ripalta Daniello dresses women between Africa and the Mediterranean
The stylist inspired by travels to exotic destinations in the southern hemisphere launches a very colorful and joyful collection for him and her. To enjoy unity.
You can send a powerful cultural message even with clothes, we know. But the flair and elegance presented on the catwalk by the designer Ripalta Daniello at the last Milan Fashion Week 2020 go very well with the desire to combine worlds and fashions naturally.
“My experience stems from a recent trip to Guinea, a suggestive nation on the African continent overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. In those places the influence of French taste blends with the joyful African style ”, says the designer of the genesis of her works.
The clothes are made with brightly colored fabrics, made eye-catching by the addition of jewelry worn by women on holidays. I have noticed women walking in very humble, chaotic and polluted environments, releasing sensuality and elegance.
Originally from the charming town of Cerignola, in Puglia, Ripalta Daniello settled in Siena, where she opened her atelier and from which her professional adventure in the world of fashion began.
The creations presented by this emerging brand represent a synthesis of the experiences that combine the elegance of the Mediterranean woman with the charm of the colors that always strike Westerners when they visit Africa.
Africa and the Mediterranean: two opposite worlds that Ripalta has been able to masterfully unite and reinterpret in a single collection, representing an ideal encounter between two types of woman and two different cultures but which in its latest creations are inexorably close; both enhanced by luminous stones and set in the textile jewels that adorn the clothes, Ripalta Daniello has created a mix of different cultures and styles whose common denominator is the taste for beauty.
The creator of the homonymous brand has thus interpreted her emotions, her feelings as a traveler giving rise to a new, elegant and refined woman, completing her with the joyfulness of the African world.
The clothes, made with brightly colored fabrics, are made eye-catching by the addition of jewelry, thus creating a contrast between the simplicity of Africa and the typically European sensual and sophisticated world.
All the clothes in the collection are created with strictly printed fabrics using eco-sustainable techniques, food fibers or organic cotton in the sign of real respect for the environment that is not just mere propaganda.
