Known for his use of tailoring to accentuate a woman’s figure, Antonio Berardi moved away from the strict body-con silhouettes of seasons past and opted instead for more architectural shapes. The collection was made up mostly of dresses and glamorous overcoats.

Some of the shorter skirts were so heavy on draping and kick pleats that they looked as if they belonged back in the Fifties, or perhaps in an origami competition — especially the voluminous teal one, worn with a cropped tuxedo jacket.
