The black panther is a recurring motif at Krizia and, this season, visions of wild cats sent creative director Mariuccia Mandelli on an exotic safari. African influences were sprinkled throughout, from the oversize crocodile scales on the sleeves of a sleek tuxedo to a chic belted linen coatdress with undulating organza sleeves. This mix of sheer and opaque was a theme of the collection and, along with the savvy use of gold accents, it made for a sophisticated urban take on the colonial motif — give or take a few animal-inspired intarsia sweaters.
