Colcci Spring-Summer 2016: Women's - Gisele Bündchen's last runway show
On Wednesday in Brazil, during the São Paulo Fashion Week (April 13-17, 2015), Brazilian brand Colcci presented its Spring-Summer 2016 collection.
The brand Colcci is part of the AMC Textile business group and focuses on 'young contemporary fashion with attitude'. The label offers to the young generation modern apparel, accessories and footwear in 1 650 multi-label and 9 franchises stores in 31 countries around the world.
Colcci Spring-Summer 2016 collection offers both men's and women's garments and we will take a look at both parts separately.
Let's start with the womenswear.
Definitely, Gisele Bündchen was the topic of the evening - she announced her official retirement from the catwalk. After more than a dozen fashion shows with Colcci, 34-year-old Gisele chose her last event as a runway model to be the same one, where she made her debut 20 years ago.
The world's top-earning model opened and closed the show for the Brazilian label and in the end, when a crowd of male and female models, stood out in jeans and white T-shirts with her image on them, Gisele burst into tears.
According to Forbes magazine, Gisele has been the highest-paid model in the world for the past eight years, with $47 million in earnings last year.
Last month, Bündchen announced that she wants to spend more time with her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Brady, and their two children, Benjamin and Vivian, and that's why she is retiring from runway modelling.
'I am grateful that at 14, I was given the opportunity to start this journey. Today after 20 years in the industry, it is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business', Gisele wrote on Facebook.
And what about the collection?
Well, it offers a romantic 70s mixture of shapes, themes and rocker smoothed references.
High waisted shorts, light blue jeans, full body jacquard, baby-doll dresses, floral motifs, parkas, polka dots print, bright colors.
The models switched between structured looks with graphic prints, monochromatic combinations in black and white and light transparent lace dresses.
