Bold, sharp and ornate was the message from Fausto Puglisi, whose talent recently earned him the creative director position at Ungaro. The Sicilian-born designer worked a focused lineup, counterpointing slim, floor-grazing silhouettes with skimpy, flared shapes, all bejeweled with Baroque-inspired motifs in gold and crystals.
Puglisi’s demonstrative pieces were often done in a combo of orange-and-black tartan, tough leathers, wool crepe and printed silk chiffon, cobbled into column dresses with traffic-stopping thigh-high slits, biker jackets and flouncy little skirts, for a look that sometimes winked at Gianni Versace’s signature Eighties aesthetic.
