Antonio Berardi worked fluidity and volume into his form-fitting aesthetic. The more appealing looks were those that effortlessly melded the two extremes. They included a sporty halter-neck top, its bodice done in a patchwork of electric blue, black and heavy white mesh, paired with a draped miniskirt, and a black maxidress with a cutout halter bodice that graduated into loose mesh skirts. But it was the designer’s beaded and sequin-encrusted eveningwear that had the most impact, with the embellishments sewn in geometric patterns. No doubt they’ll appeal to his growing fan base of red-carpet fashion plates.
