As of late, we have been intrigued by the art collections that the major US museums have displayed. We think one of the most interesting of all is being housed at The Philadelphia Museum March 16 - June 5 2011. Roberto Capucci is a brilliant Italian couturier designer. He was born in 1930 and began studying his craft at an early age. He was easily inspired by architecture, art and nature which is evident in his detailed creations. Although his sketches and illustrations are mesmerizing, it is his dresses that are awe inspiring. He is known for his innovative silhouettes, bold color and materials. He is especially interested in pleats, organza and taffeta. His attention to detail is UNBELIEVABLE and we really are a bit obsessed with his talent! Take a look at some of his greatest pieces and if you happen to be in Philly over the next few months...Stop in!
