Spring/Summer 2016: Persephone
The Darker, More Sorrowful Side Of Love & Romance
This collection draws its inspiration from the darker side of romance. Named after the Greek goddess Persephone, who was the daughter of Zeus and the harvest goddess Demeter, and is the queen of the underworld.
Candice Cuoco personified her take on romance in this collection, the darker more sorrowful side love and beauty. Love is not always a fairy-tale and sometimes leaves a scar but scars can be beautiful. The collection shows the chaos that can come out of love and the passion that can produce something beautiful from something dark.
This collection saw a more feminine side of CCUOCO, still using the CCUOCO statement material of leather but adding softer romantic fabrics including organza, silk satin and silk chiffon to compliment the Spring/Summer season. Colors this season included maroons, navy, creams and black but through the introduction of sheer fabrics and patterned materials the collection took on a new persona within the CCUOCO aesthetic. The collection also featured this season hand sewn embellishment using clear & black crystals & applique stud work.
