A little trivia about Roberto Torretta for those of you that have never heard of him.
He is based in Madrid, Spain but he was born in Argentina
His first specialty was designing garments using cotton for sportswear.
Then he went on to design jewelry, watches, dinnerware, leather goods and sunglasses.
His spring 2013 collection is what we call contemporary which is "modern chic".
Using defined design lines, fabric manipulation using pleats and draping and multiple fabric combinations in one garment.
Lets get on with it.
I initially thought this jacket was made out of a damask but when I looked at the close up it appeared to be
a digital print of a damask pattern on a cotton. The color block stripes appears to be a cotton canvas or leather.
I thought, this would be a great idea for Simplicity 1699.
Once again, we have another dress with the sheer fabric "invisible shoulder" to give the one shoulder effect. What I like about this dress is that he combined a few types of fabric in one garment to include the knit fabric for the draping and the woven for the wrap. I like how he worked in the wrap of the skirt with the little gathers at the waistline. You know how I feel about one sided gathers. Is this a wool tweed for the skirt or just another digital printing effect?
This dress looks like a charmeuse (at the shoulder) and tweed combo, I like that the darts are not vertical, they are radiating on a diagonal which works seamlessly with the A line silhouette.
I like the whole look of this leather shell and white skirt.
The draping on this dress, reminds me of a Donna Karan pattern, simple but with lots of draping.
The last dress is this little red number, the V is incredibly low but the pleats that are formed at the midriff, I like. I also like the faux wrap effect of the skirt. This fabric looks like butter, I can only imagine how it must feel.
