Fausto Puglisi designed a strong resort collection, featuring splashy new elements for the line. Specifically, Puglisi introduced a range of streetwear-inspired pieces, including a cotton parka bearing the designer’s signature sun pattern with a Greco-Roman feel. A similar style came cropped and decorated with metallic zippers, and worn over a black-and-white bralette and a coordinating micromini. There was no shortage of metallic details.
Puglisi delved into new fabrics, working with lace for the first time, taking it in a sexy graphic direction on a maxidress. He also worked in textured 3-D knits, including a red and cream sheath dress and a skin-tight asymmetric striped frock. In keeping with his love for American pop culture, the designer teamed up with Marvel to emblazon a “Captain America” print on a Neoprene minidress, while he co-opted a “Miami Vice” mood for an oversize two-tone silk shirt and bubblegum-pink cigarette pants.
