The designer took his inspiration from a book about the life of the 19th Century Scottish explorer Mungo Park who loved Africa — and eventually went missing there. The collection reflected that journey, opening with a series of tailored safari looks, including a chic khaki kilt worn with a crisp white shirt and a Masai-style choker. It progressed to looser, more fluid shapes in vibrant colors: There were belted, burnt orange cowl-neck summer dresses and printed maxi gowns cut seamlessly to look like a single piece of fabric tied by the wearer. At each end of the spectrum, Aggugini’s strength as a tailor shone through.
