Antonio Berardi Spring 2012

Antonio Berardi’s Spring 2012 collection proved that the designer continues to focus on empowering women with smart suits and sexy temptress dresses.

In some cases his warrior women looked like they were wearing armour with bold-shouldered cropped jackets, padded shoulders on dresses, blazers and vests, plus embellishments on dresses which looked like body armour.

I loved the romantic baroque prints on several pieces. They made me crane my neck to get a closer look.

For daywear we saw summery, floaty chiffon dresses, fitted dresses, skirt suits, vests paired with cropped fitted pants and embroidered tops, sheer blouses paired with fitted skirts, blazers, jumpsuits and wide-legged pants.

Antonio’s huge celebrity fanbase will love the red-carpet-ready looks which ranged from drop-dead gorgeous gowns to flirty fluid chiffon embellished dresses with rise and fall hemlines. Some of these pieces were paired with bejewelled pants.

Key accessories included Manolo Blahnik ankle boots, belts and clutches which provided pops of green plus ruby red, black and nude.

Favourites: Blush blazer paired with bejewelled pants and red gown with padded shoulders

      • Parvati

        I know, I’m not a big fan of the mullet dresses, too, but these red embellisments look so pretty on the dress that I don’t mind the length.
