During Milan Fashion Week, Italian fashion house DROMe debuted a progressive collection of 39 female-empowered looks, each of which boast womanhood’s fearless eroticism. Creative director Marianna Rosati sought inspiration from the 1968 book Les Erotiques Du Regard by Marc Attali and Jacques Delfau, Med Sod Forstaelse, a documentary of prostitution in Denmark by Krass Clement, and photographs of Chinese sex workers by Zhang Hayer, aiming to represent the powerful energy a DROMe woman possesses in claiming her own sexual identity through each piece.

Consisting of oversized, cropped outerwear, retro-inspired lingerie, ultra-feminine mini-dresses with deep slits, and light knitwear, DROMe’s latest range calls on the late ‘80s and early ‘90s for sartorial inspiration. Upon viewing the collection in its entirety, an opaque, hazy color palette evidently dominates Rosati’s designs across a complementary color palette of pure white, crystal, nude, and platinum gold. 

Rosati instills an attitude of sensuality and a gesture of tenacious audacity into each finely tailored piece, a compelling statement for female ownership over sexual identities. Below, revel in the full collection backstage before the show.
