“I like to think of this collection as a party wardrobe for Brigitte Bardot,” said Lorena Sarbu, who experimented with laser-cut 3-D elements, beading and lace appliqués for resort. “All of the dresses have something unexpected.” She worked a halter dress with a flared skirt in pearlized blush leather, while the lean-waisted skirt of a sheath dress was done in bright red leather, its top in delicate sheer silk layers. Gowns also had Sarbu’s special touch, especially the embroidered, nude tulle one with cap sleeves, shown over a sleek silk strapless column.
