Sara Battaglia presented her second ready-to-wear collection in her beautiful Milanese apartment.
The space, with its frisky combination of bold, maximalist decor peppered with elegant bourgeois elements, perfectly reflected the irreverent spirit of the lineup. The overall look was precise and sophisticated — imagine sartorial coats worn over Prince of Wales elongated vests and flared pants, oversize double-breasted mannish blazers and polished jackets with incorporated capelets.
But, then, flamboyant touches of eccentricity emerged, as in palazzo pants and a matching top with flared sleeves covered in multicolor sequins, or a flared trenchcoat crafted from a leopard jacquard pattern. Battaglia also re-created her bags’ signature rainbow intarsia on a leather jacket with a coordinated skirt, while high-waisted washed denim pants were matched with an eye-catching jean shirt trimmed with maxi ruffles.
Battaglia continued expanding her offering of bags. For fall, she introduced a cube style with two zippers, which was presented in a variety of options, including one crafted from a net of pearls and crystals. The rainbow motif appeared on a pleated bucket bag, while minimal cross-body styles featured colorful straps.
