Ports1961 SS2015

Luxury fashion house Ports 1961 previews its new SPRING SUMMER 2015
Womenswear collection at the Corso Venezia 16, Milan.


This season, Ports 1961’s woman has two souls inspired by the spirit of the Greek goddess Artemis: one strong and warrior-like; one sensual and feminine – a combination that expresses the svelte power and stealth of the eternal huntress.

A sensual colour palette of crisp white combined with the creamiest ivory, recalling the nacre of a deep sea pearl. Nude tones balance pale rose pinks and whisper-soft taupe – all anchored by the precision of the purest black.

Artemis inspired A-line shapes and long, languid forms with geometric elements, balanced in turn by fluid, flyaway silks, cottons and knits, express a mood of total control and self-determination. The bold and assertive spirit of the iconic No.10 blouse is reinvented in luxurious athletic fabrics and details, such as a sporty silk mesh and pique ‘plastron’.

Sexy, short kilt and wrap skirts have evolved from FW14. Wide trousers are rethought with a detachable peplum on the waistline, creating an elongated ‘lift’ effect. Cropped pants add variety with the latter in a sheer silk-cotton voile.

Twirled godets and gently billowing gussets stand out on ultra-light dresses in silk and cotton silk twill. Meanwhile, multi plissé dresses feature enriched panels and straps inspired by the huntress’s armour.

Fiona Cibani channels the warrior goddess and invites women to follow Artemis and her fleet- footed elegance with sculpted designs, divine details and a poise and attitude that demonstrates the apex of female empowerment.

This season, American television personality and model Kendall Jenner, and one of the top international models in China Liu Wen, graced the runway and walked in Ports 1961’s SS15 looks.
