For resort, Sara Battaglia took an imaginative trip to Palm Beach in the Fifties. Inspired by the colors of Miami and the glamorous beauties of Slim Aarons’ pictures, she delivered a chic collection that combined a bon-ton attitude with more eccentric vibes.
A mint green and white jacquard pattern with palms gave a touch of exoticism to a strapless maxidress and a column style cinched at the waist with a coordinating thin belt, while the same motif rendered in a metallic fabric on a power suit with a waisted blazer and strong shoulders added flamboyant sparkle to the lineup.
Battaglia’s passion for sculptural shapes was reflected in the dresses that featured cape-like constructions, while a charming mannish attitude was introduced with pants and maxi shirts that combined different striped shirt fabrics. In keeping with the brand’s signature femininity, a Fifties white frock splashed with red polka dots was an homage to the seductive beauty of Marilyn Monroe.
