The collection

La nuova capsule collection Arts of Italy sarà disponibile in prevendita esclusiva online su ovs.it dal 12 settembre e in una selezione di negozi OVS dal 22 settembre.

The Women’s collection is inspired by five important Italian operas: Gaetano Donizetti's Anna Bolena, Vincenzo Bellini's I Capuleti e I Montecchi, Gioacchino Rossini's La Cenerentola, Giacomo Puccini's Madama Butterfly, and Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata. The outfits, inspired by classic garments from the historical period of each opera, have been redesigned in a modern and sexy key. The easy to wear cotton t-shirts are embellished with embroidery and show the printed phrase taken from the most famous "arias" of the operas. The skirts, with their large volumes, are made with colours and materials that reflect the personality and the stories of the heroines. The headbands complete and define the style of each one with unique details that exalt the expressive wealth and material of every look offered.

La traviata

Violetta Valery is a Parisian courtesan who falls in love with Alfredo Germont, a rich young man she meets at a party. An intense, passionate love overwhelms them but will be obstructed by social prejudices and his family. Even if the first interpretation of Violetta at La Fenice in Venice turned out to be a fiasco, she becomes the most famous female opera character in the world.

La Cenerentola

Cinderella is Baron Don Magnifico’s stepdaughter. Destined to do the humblest work she unexpectedly falls in love with Prince Ramiro, and then becomes his bride, transforming her dream into reality. The name of the protagonist, Angelina, is inspired by the subtitle of the opera “The triumph of goodness” and evokes her “angelic” purity of soul.

I Capuleti e i Montecchi

Juliet Capulet falls in love with Romeo Montague, son of a rival family in 13th-century Verona. In a world of intrigue, struggle and rivalry Juliet challenges everyone and everything for love, to the extent of pretending to be dead in order to flee with her beloved. The great success of Bellini’s opera brought Shakespeare’s previously unknown tragedy to the attention of the public in Italy.

Anna Bolena

Queen Anna Boleyn, wife of Henry VIII, is a woman in pain, who has lost the love of the king and has been put aside so that the king can pay court to her lady-in-waiting, Jane Seymour. It was precisely after listening to this opera that the composer J.S. Mayr, Donizetti’s friend and adviser, for the first time declared him to be a maestro.

Madama Butterfly

Cho-Cho-San (Madame Butterfly) is a Japanese geisha, seduced and abandoned by American officer, Pinkerton. After having had a son by him, she waits for his return her whole life, but he comes back to her only to take the child away. With his fragile, resolute, desperate and struggling heroines, Puccini has gone down in history as the most sensitive observer and interpreter of the feminine universe.
