 "Fashion is a culture that unites, that creates a sense of belonging, of community. And the challenge of new fashion is to combine creative intuition with wearability, the spirit with the body, the virtual with the real.


Ours are clothes that transform, become the new chronometer of fashion, to adapt to changes in time and environment. Facing the present increasingly requires learning to look at the surrounding reality with different eyes and, at the same time, making visible what mind and imagination suggest".

Word of Lavinia Biagiotti Cigna who shows in the Piccolo Teatro in Milan, in the Studio Melato, on the eve of Milano Donna (the digital fashion show on 26/2) reinventing the codes of her maison founded by her mother Laura.

The iconic elements that inspired the collection are knitwear, for which her mother had received the nickname "Queen of cashmere" from the New York Times;

white, in its literal and metaphorical meaning of light, open-mindedness and rebirth;

the link with the city of Rome.

She closes the parade with an unprecedented performance by the Blue Butterflies, bronze medalists of Tokyo 2021, the athletes of the Italian National Rhythmic Gymnastics Team.

The parterre is full of well-known names, including Anna Dello Russo, Mariano Di Vaio, Maria Grazia Cucinotta, Laura Chiatti, Martina Stella, Ilenia Pastorelli, Anna Safroncik, Cecilia Rodriguez, Federica Panicucci.


The Biagiotti collection for Autumn-Winter 24/25 focuses on an architectural element typical of the Eternal City, the column.

In a symbolic representation that celebrates women as pillars of society.

Columns in architecture are almost always present in groups, supporting each other and creating a solid and long-lasting structure.

It is a "team effort" suggested by Biagiotti's fashion that she has never claimed to impose a form on women, but has always strived to interpret the demands of everyday life.

But the columns are also decorative elements: an invitation to express a new creative wisdom, without losing sight of one's own strength.

The Biagiotti column becomes fluid, soft in the silk prints that reproduce it and in the pleats: a message of lightness, also suggested by the set of the fashion show framed by metaphysical toulle columns.

The collection sublimates the icons of the eternal city: the artistic opulence, the cinematic beauty, the lifestyle.

The shirt is worked with stitches and weaves sculpted like bas-reliefs.

Prints, shapes and decorations mix.

The palette references the colors of Rome.

The raw white of the travertine meets the golden reflections of the domes and the chiaroscuro of the architecture, from beige to the black/white contrast.

Bianco Biagiotti opens the show with a double-sided cashmere coat, with draperies reminiscent of a statue.

Suits with a sporty appeal with braid compositions alternate with double dresses with a sculptural line;

essential suits to figure-hugging dresses.

The column, light in the peplum-line printed dresses, is embroidered with golden threads in the double-faced white cashmere coat;

it is in relief, almost a 3D effect, in the couture pleats on the sheath dress.

Plastic volumes, drapery and proportions find the woman in her uniqueness.

The column is a symbol in the jacquard knit dress which reproduces the fluted shaft and capital of an Ionic column, worn with the new mask-glasses, a reinterpretation of the iconic model from the 80s. The work suit with a masculine line, in pinstripe lurex, softened with the enveloping knitted cape.

The knitted sheath dress is embellished with crystal embroidery, also reproduced on the sleeves of the oversized cardigan.

Cashmere is transformed into suits with fringes, which arise from the interweaving of ribbons, covered with small crystals.
