In his first outing for Genny, Gabriele Colangelo melded minimalist cuts with exotic patterns in a collection inspired by the African vistas of photographer Peter Beard. New owner Singer International is counting on the young designer to revive the dormant brand, whose past creative directors included Gianni Versace and Rebecca Moses. Colangelo channeled the influence of both by adding zips and slits to sleek separates ranging from a crisp white linen cape to a knee-length skirt assembled from panels of caramel zebra-print fur. Workwear options included sleek trouser suits and gently draped blouses in silk or sheer chiffon, some in vibrant shades of ocher and sky blue, others in faded tree bark tones.
