Israeli clothing giant, Castro, recently presented their new Fall/Winter collection for 2012-2013. FashionTV was front and center at the show in Tel Aviv, which calls for a colorful, stylish, and dramatic Fall/Winter season.
This year’s collection is inspired by nostalgic fantasy across time and continents, from old fashioned European ski trips, Agatha Christie novels, and the style from 90’s television show ‘Twin Peaks’ to historical gothic era of medieval times.
Castro’s headlining model and spokesperson is popular Israeli model/actress Gal Gadot, who has appeared alongside Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in the Fast & Furious movies. Gadot, opened the show in a double-breasted brown trench coat along with sexy knee high boots. She was joined by Castro’s male headliner Yonatan Wegman.
Castro’s new winter collection is a brilliant combination of mystery and travel. Inspiration came from Eastern European heritage and folklore along with some gothic history. The result is a winter collection full of presence, rich textures, wool coats and dip effect. The collection is accompanied by touches of gold elements, specifically on military uniform coats and wool pants.
Additional fabrics such as nylon was in presence, designed with colorful quilt. Four separate lines were featured on the runway, BLUE Women, BLUE Men, RED Men and BLACK. Originally, the BLACK line was launched in the previous season and has already been known to give customers sophistication and trendiness to one’s personal style.
This year, models walked down the runway in leather trench coats, high-waisted leather flowy skirts and black velvet slim dresses with a low neckline. Thin and light transparent chiffon was delivered along with cropped camel-colored suits, burgundy shades and silk scarves. The runway also included hues of plum, teal, beige, brown and of course a whole lot of black. From pencil skirts to trench coats, the audience was completely surrounded in dramatic leather.
For men, Castro created trendy and elegant formalwear full of tailored silhouettes and strict suiting. Accessories included biker boots, umbrellas, wool scarves, leather gloves and oxford shoes.
Gadot and Wegman closed the show, strutting down the catwalk in full on black. Gadot sported a sweetheart draped gown and Wegman stunned in a black-collared trench coat over black suiting.
