Tailored separates, capri pants, short suits and shirt dress are re-invented. Geometric cut-out details and guipure lace mimic the “Claustra” facades on balconies from the 60s. In a contrast romantic mood, billowy dresses and wrap front blouses with exaggerated bell sleeves captured in the lightest of fabrics sashay to the motion of Spinnaker sails flying on the Azur.

The palette of crisp white and gentle sorbets offset by the vibrant colour pop of Capri Lemon, Pool Green, Petunia Purple, Azur Blue, Portofino Coral and Crystal Pink is punctuated with applique 3D embroidery featuring poppies, lavender, floral bouquets and water droplets.

As the sun sets, ripple-like ruffles and origami pleats come out to play. Luscious layers of tulle and transparent fabrics, adorned with glistening embellishment capture a dappled impressionistic light, while delicate metallic thread embroidery channels festoon lights and outdoor parties.

The brand’s signature structured silhouettes and fabric manipulation is highlighted at cocktail hour, evoking a sense of the heady evenings on the Cote d’Azur. Look to tailored jumpsuits and daring gowns with asymmetric shoulders, plunging necklines and sweeping capes finished with abstract bows and liquid paillette trompe-l’oeil overlays.

High-octane glamour like you’ve never seen before
