Warmer months present a challenge for Marianna Rosati of leather-driven Drome, known for its sleek silhouettes and shearling outerwear. She rose to the occasion by weaving improbably lightweight leather and suede throughout the chic collection, enhancing the weightlessness with perforations and laser-cut patterns.
Done in a quirky palette of soft yellow, blush and rust, many of Rosati’s silhouettes skewed Sixties. There were high-neck shift dresses and miniskirts, and several looks came adorned with Modish circular buttons. The sporty, tomboy appeal of motorcycle jackets and striped stretch leather pants tempered the girlishness of ruched, pleated and floral-printed leather tops and skirts. Also notable this season was the expansion of Drome’s knitwear, for example, an effortlessly polished long-sleeved body-con dress with cutout shoulders and rounded leather buttons.
