Marianna Rosati explored new territories for fall, integrating a patchwork of velvets, silks and pinstriped jersey into Drome’s signature palette of different finishes of leather.
Splicing silk crêpe and leather on flared dresses with asymmetric button-up fronts in monochrome black or white proved a successful technique, bringing a new fluidity to the lineup, while olive-colored pleated velvet panels and the layering of different fabrics and textures on other designs were nice touches.
Elsewhere, Rosati channeled more of an Eighties mood, offering up statement leather dresses, pants, suits and coats with polished, wrinkled or matte finishes. Many of these featured details like exaggerated balloon sleeves, leather frills and cut-out sections. Her mannish-cut, wide-shouldered designs, as in an outsized silver leather coat, packed more of a punch.
