Who Doesn't Love the "F" Word? Fasoli Arrives

sandrinfasoli_open1Femininity. Fashion. Fantasy. Michaël Marson and Sandrina Fasoli, the award-winning design duo behind the Sandrina Fasoli collection do seem to like playing with a certain letter. Noted for their fetching new vision of feminism, the team was presented the prestigious 2007 Mango Fashion Award by Valentino (a human bronze medal himself) and were nominated for the 2008 GenArt Tone Fashion Vision Award.
With pieces named "Filou," "Febe," "Fanny," and "Fay," it seems the duo is just a tad obsessed with the letter "f." Indeed, with a little black dress turns that sheer just above the knee and a blouse fashioned with dainty ribbons around cut out shoulders, they're putting the "f" back in the word "flirt" (among others).
Of course, we're too polite to sound those words out, but Fasoli makes the line's goals pretty clear. Sandrina Fasoli aims to, "exteriorize what [a woman] wants to say, with a touch of femininity, innocence, nostalgia and no pretense." True, there is very little feigned here and that touch of "innocence" is barely even felt. For instance, the line's cocktail dress looks like it might slide right off with a tug on the deceptively placed ribbon and the spring collection features even more skin, sheer, alluring concealment and masterful cutting. Did we forget to mention "fetish"?
