Alaina Withers: Piccante
My collection Piccante creates an atmosphere which is inspired by my favorite Italian pastime, Aperitivo. Sociability around meals is a big part of Italian culture, which is why I’ve chosen to design a contract interior space, both modern and maximized. This bar scene serves as an ultimate hole in the wall space, layered with contrast and texture. Saturated neutrals, fiery reds, and intense oranges combine in this collection to create a calculated chaos, rich with color and pattern. I’m excited to build this atmosphere and further display this collection on the runway.
