Boscove is no stranger to fashion, having created an iconic range of jackets, trousers and shoes in the 1970s and 1980s.
Its latest collection, for example, features a full-length, open-toed skirt with a skirt-like back, which is inspired by Italian designer Giuseppe Bocchieri.
The company has also introduced its latest collection of women-inspired garments in 2017, which was inspired by Bocchi’s own signature silhouette.
The collection includes a range of dresses, which feature silhouettes inspired by his signature Italian trousers, while the company’s signature line of lightweight, low-rise denim pants also feature the designer’s signature silhouette and fit.
“The silhouettes are based on Giuseppino Bocci’s classic designs,” says co-founder and creative director Maria Giustina.
“And the pants are inspired by Giusepino’s signature trousers.”
For Giustinias latest collection for women, the line includes a number of new silhouettes.
One, the “S” silhouette, features two sleeves with the same silhouette, while another, the ‘S’ silhouette, has a “V” in the centre, with a horizontal strip of fabric to separate the two sleeves.
The “V-style” has a cutaway at the waistline, which also shows off the silhouette’s unique fabric.
A third, “S-style”, has a shorter sleeve, and a vertical stripe running down the middle of the leg, as well as a single vertical stripe, which wraps around the midsection of the lower leg.
The trousers have an open front with a slim waistband, while a second silhouette, the slim silhouette, is also shown in the showroom, featuring a slim, mid-rise silhouette.
It features an open back with a fitted waist and a waist-to-hip ratio of 3.3.
“This was one of the first time we saw a silhouette with such a strong, unique fit, which appealed to our clientele,” explains Giustini.
“We tried to create a silhouette that would make women feel confident in wearing these clothes.”
One of the most sought-after items in the Boscotos womenswear collection is the Boccetti Gondola, which features a slim cutback with an open rear pocket.
It has a waist and thigh ratio of 1.5, and is made from polyester and leather.
“It’s a very practical piece that women can wear to a restaurant, or a club, or just to work and to do a casual occasion,” says Giustinian.
Boccei’s new range of womenwear also features a new range, inspired by a contemporary Italian designer.
“I’ve been inspired by designer Giorgio Armani’s style and I wanted to bring that style into women’s clothes,” says Bocchini.
“When you wear a women’s suit, you have to choose between formal or casual wear.
And that’s what Giorgio Armanis suits are for.”
