For resort, Fausto Puglisi said he was inspired by American culture.

“What I’ve always found fascinating about it is that it has incredibly strong contrasts,” said the designer, who delivered a lineup touching different notes.

A certain Hamptons-like posh aesthetic was injected in the chic flared dresses featuring smocked-waisted flounce dresses, which were printed with Puglisi’s signature palm pattern revamped with a geometric attitude. The same motif was also splashed on wrap frocks, kimono-inspired summer coats, as well as polished A-line skirts and shirts.

Inspired by the powerful femininity of model and socialite Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, Puglisi also developed more openly sensual silhouettes. They included an ankle-length, fitted dress with an irregular striped colorful intarsia on the front and a column style with constructed shoulders — they were perfect for glamorous Hollywood moments.

At the same time, a bold, flamboyant Miami-inspired feel echoed in a group of Lycra and silk sexy styles, punctuated by draped color-blocked details. They definitely required a frisky and audacious spirit but, most of all, a hot body.
