Antonio Riva Milano dona l’abito “Peonie” al Museo della Seta di Como

Antonio Riva Milano has made a generous donation to the Museo della Seta di Como. The donation, a stunning piece called the "Peonie" dress, showcases the unique creative spirit of the Maison and its deep connection to the silk tradition of Como.

Founded on the picturesque shores of Lake Como, Antonio Riva Milano has always stayed true to its roots, drawing inspiration from the beauty and craftsmanship of the region. The creative director of the Maison, Antonio Riva, conceptualized the idea of a silk print that would evoke the essence of a peony flower garden in full bloom. Thus, the 'Peonia' print was born, a delicate and vibrant design that captures the charm and elegance of the peony, a flower beloved by the couturier.

The "Peonie" dress is a masterpiece that embodies the creative vision and technical skill of Antonio Riva. Constructed by draping 16 silk scarves, with the exclusive peony print, the dress is a harmonious blend of iconic design elements and the beauty of nature. The sculptural silhouette, with its large volume and intricate details, reflects the couturier's dedication to craftsmanship and innovation.
