Wallpaper from the hotels and restaurants of Miami’s Art Deco District was the driving force for Albino D’Amato this season. It appeared in the jacquard brocades he designed and crafted into elegant dresses and coats cut in clean silhouettes. Sometimes the rich patterns were combined with solid and striped inserts for cool outerwear pieces, such as a front-pocketed jacket with an Americana feel.
Pin-striped and other mannish tailored fabrics were worked into feminine deconstructed dresses, as well as suits with short pants. Long, crepe de chine dresses were jazzed up with colorblocking and jaunty knots at the shoulders.
