Antonio Berardi was another in a line of London designers who summoned a Forties-meets-futuristic mood this season. His signature statement gowns had peaked shoulders, shiny PVC panels at the hips, and swishing fishtail hems. Sharp-shouldered silk blazers — in lipstick red or pastel pink — were teamed with loosely tailored pants or leggings encrusted with armorlike patterns of sequins and crystals. As a counterpoint to all that tough glamour, Berardi worked in softer, romantic elements. One delicate chiffon dress had a cape that fluttered as the model walked.
