Boxing. Body awareness. Bodywork. Shaping the body. Show an attitude. Consciously striding. Strength and grace. Second skin. Generous cuts. Movement in the clothing. Tension. Ease. A new elegance.
The women's collection ROUND 2 is inspired by the sport of boxing and sprezzatura, a Renaissance term describing the ability to make physical exertion appear effortless by controlling facial mimicry. Heavy materials such as leather and sweatshirt jersey are used with light materials such as jersey and fine cotton. This contrast and refined cuts make the clothing seem light. Ranging from dark green to jetblack the fabric was all coloured by me personally in reference to the patina of the statues of heroes. Paula Alicia Studeli's ALIC DELI clothing gives the body enough room with the advantage of greater flexibility. The target group appreciates the idea that elegant clothing possesses - in the figurative sense - the power to protect and they feel empowered by it. Women who wear ALIC DELI stride through life, they don't drag their feet!
