Francesco Scognamiglio’s Fall 2010 presentation was very beautiful, elegant, and laced with undeniable glamour in a dark and mysterious way.
I was slightly thrown by the inclusion of pink and mint green, but they provided an interesting pop of colour against the slate grey and black.
Scognamiglio included many great textures of leather, silk, satin, jersey, wool, cashmere, lace, shearling, tweed, and feathers.
We were presented with ace mini dresses, pleated blouses, the high waisted flare pants, a fur coat, draped capes, jumpsuits and mini skirt.
More than half of the collection was accented with a diamond statement belt. One piece had an oversized crystallized hand-belt.
The laser-cut leather dresses seem to be a homage to Alaïa.
