Sara Battaglia’s first pre-fall collection was all about a fresh, sophisticated elegance. The designer played with traditional staples of the woman’s wardrobe, which she revisited with a glamorous yet practical approach.
The classic Little Black Dress was presented in a sculpted, waisted silhouette, which defined a pin-striped skirt suit with the jacket enriched by tailored strong shoulders.
A mini frock embellished with a delicate capelet detail revealed a sensual cutout on the back and the jacket of a black suit showed a lingerielike construction.
While Battaglia focused more on solids, including the bold China blue of a chic double-breasted blazer and the sophisticated dark red of a pair of sleek flared eco-leather pants, she introduced a graphic giraffe pattern, which she splashed on a halter-neck, full-skirted cocktail dress.
