Once again, Francesco Scognamiglio’s show started late, but when the first look emerged — a delicate shirt with floral lace details paired with a flowing cotton maxiskirt — it was clear this collection was worth the wait. The beautiful lineup was imbued with an aristocratic elegance mixed with subtle sensuality. The plethora of romantic floor-length dresses, shown in black, white and baby blue, was juxtaposed with a series of cool men’s-inspired suits featuring baggy pants and belts in oversize crystal-encrusted bird motifs. The sophisticated appeal of the collection was not lost when Scognamiglio approached a military theme via cadetlike double-breasted coats cut on the bias.
