For her fall effort, Marianna Rosati took her leather label Drome to an imaginary underground nightclub full of intriguing motifs, colors and shapes. Materials ran from high-shine patent leather to hand-painted psychedelic images on napa leather, metallic pin-striped or crinkled effects, as well as leopard and polka dots printed on calfskin, in shades of nude, white, navy, blue, red and berry pink. The looks spanned the decades from the Forties, with coats offering dramatic voluminous sleeves, to the Sixties, with mini A-line skirts and chunky-heeled loafers. To make the nostalgia trip complete, they also evoked a bit of medieval Renaissance in the ruched details of some collars and sleeves, or the extra-long cuffs of the ballooning sleeves on a cream suede blouse. Not to mention the offbeat Eighties allure of a black and white dotted jacket dripping with extra-long fringes of nude patent. It was a worthy goal to drive the brand into more fashionable territory, but some of Rosati’s commercial appeal got lost in the time travel.
