Designer Toni Francesc likes to draw parallels between his creations and the environment in which humans evolve. Bringing a metaphorical hand to all of his collections, Toni Francesc focus’ on elements and concepts as nature and technology from which he draws his inspiration. He created a dark collection entitled “Artificial Life for Autumn / Winter 2010 and has now moved, to a collection that is light and clear for summer 2011. Having represented the relationship between man and machine, he presents this time the link between man and nature, an effort that is slightly less successful than the previous collection.
Inspired by the natural resources, the collection “Urban Forest” by Toni Francesc will undoubtedly delight eco-friendly consumers but will be somewhat cool to fashionistas. The mini-flowing dresses in satin and tulle draped are the imminent trend of the season, had embellished accessories molded and carved wood in abstract forms that brought an interesting ethnic and craft side. The jewelry produced by Nashel Designs flexible parts dovetailed very well with the theme that Toni Francesc displayed.
Pushing the inspiration of nature into the printed dresses in shades of yellow and brown, breaking the continuity of a set of monochrome tones neutral beige, gray and white, Francesc showed a mastery of color. Dresses and silk blouses with contrasting colors of yellow, coral and turquoise brought a touch of sparkling ideal for the summer season. I can say that Toni Francesc presented a mixed collection between concrete and abstract giving a more or less striking but a intelligent and modern natural dimension.
