Pierpaolo Piccioli has certainly proven what an imaginative and bold designer he really is. An ode to midcentury sensibilities, surrealism and form were the key influences I took from this collection. Through the pairing of graphic abstract prints, ruffles, scale and classic cuts Piccioli has created an art piece made of 73 looks. The colour palette was another favourite aspect for me, classic and elegant. The red, blush pink, burgundy, powder blue and black worked in contrast and harmony. It was to die for in my opinion.
I liked to see that Piccioli has taken a step away from the beautifully, extreme volume he has been working with, in his previous collections. Playing with form-fitting silhouettes and beautifully constructed, soft tailoring, Piccioli was able to achieve a sense of wearability, almost a nod to the traditions and bygone years of haute couture.
I must make mention of the wonderfully, bold feather drop earring he has styled back with many looks in this collections. Their scale, use of colour and boldness truly complimented the garments and overall looks. I certainly would love to get my hands on a pair.
