I have never heard of designer Albino D’Amato or his collection Albino before,but I figured I would give it a look. The collection was inspired by a safari and “Out of Africa.” The jackets and skirts were oversized, and the prints were orange and red. I like this collection a lot, but I think it would have been better off being presented for Fall 2010 instead of Spring 2010. It was just too autumnal for me.
Miuccia was obviously inspired by Lady Gaga. The pantsless look was featured in another runway show. There were patterns, shorts, and short jackets. Grey was a big color in this collection, but there were also splashes of blue, yellow, and white. It was an overall great collection. Would I wear it? No, but I can see people who love the Prada look totally buying it.
Blumarine was a beautiful collection that I could see lots of girls wearing on the beach. The long dresses, jackets, and shorts are just right for the Tropics. The Jamaican color scheme made me look forward to summer. There were tie-die in bright and cream colors, camo, and drapery. Anna Molinari designed a young and sexy collection.
Roberto Rimondi and Tommaso Aquilano designed a beautiful collection for Gianfranco Ferré that was light and airy. The colors ranged from white to nude to black. Everything was sheer with rough edges. Some tops had exposed bras. They also did this neat thing with the dress fabric where they pleated it and then folded and shaped it into what looked like elaborate flowers. Simply gorg!
