Stephen Willats’ 1985 book “Doppelganger” inspired creative director Marianna Rosati in her exploration of duality, which resulted in a sensual range where daily sartorial uniforms coexisted with edgier, nocturnal takes on tailoring.
The look: Either corporate or nighttime, Rosati’s tailoring conveyed a seductive attitude with its combination of oversized and cropped silhouettes in blazer jackets, its deep slits cutting straight pants and pleated skirts and the extensive use of leather, the brand’s forte. Body-hugging knit pieces with cutouts and leather harnesses and belts worn over coats, sweaters and fluid pinstripe suits cast a provocative shadow over the lineup.
Standout pieces: Leather cropped jacket and pencil skirt in crimson; a rust-colored knit dress with deep side slit, worn over matching pants, and an ‘80s-inspired leather coat rendered in flashy green.
The takeaway: Consistent in her minimal aesthetics and use of leather, Rosati continues to deliver commercially savvy collections, proving she can dress women from day to night.
