Fluido - spring/summer 2002

Mimmo Baronello dedicates his Spring/Summer 2002 Fluido collection to women living with breast cancer, teaming up with Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation to raise awareness. Baronello’s active support of women’s and children’s charities, reflects the designer’s gentle and caring nature, as does his collection.

The collection preview opened with a recitation of a Franco Battiato poem by Valerie Buhagiar, a Canadian actress best known for her role in Highway 61. Fluido’s spring/summer 2002 collection projects a warm feeling, with natural linens fashioned in an earthy pallette of browns and greens. An effervescent white draping camisole with top-fastening is paired with a taupe skirt defined by a sprawling, hand-painted garden motif.

The raw silk evening dresses in black, hot orange, and magenta come with a matching sash, and give an architectural spine to the luxurious fabric.
