Celebrities favourite, Antonio Berardi, showcased his Fall 2012 collection at Senate House during London Fashion Week yesterday morning.
Known for his signature form-fitting dresses loved by the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rihanna, Zoe Saldana and Nicole Richie, the designer produced a collection we will most definitely see on the red carpet very soon.
If I had to sum up this collection in one word it would be ‘peplums’. They narrowed the waist of nearly every look.
Berardi’s daywear consisted of slick suits with sharp-shoulders, oversized coats; some with fur trims, fit-and-flare dresses – a style favoured by Kristin Davis – fitted dresses and sexy separates on a colour palette of black, silver, red, pink, teal blue and white. Some solid, others two-tone.
Berardi is one of the few designers whose day and eveningwear are loved by celebrities in equal amounts.
Models bravely navigated a flight of stairs in 6 inch Manolo Blahnik for Antonio Berardi heels before taking to the runway wearing fitted floor-length gowns.
The standout look was the fully sequined silver strapless gown followed by the ivory embroidered gown. We also saw embellished mini dresses with peplums to give them an edge.
The models were given Lisbeth-Salander-style haircuts by Orlando Pita whilst Gucci Westman kept the look clean with glossy lips and wet-look eyes.
