Sara Cavazza Facchini was going for gold with her spring collection for Genny, which was shot through with metallic thread. There was a vaguely Seventies feel to a gold bustier top with white ankle-cuffed pants, while a flowing evening gown came with an Art Deco-style bronze petal motif.

The rest was all over the place. A plunging polka-dot jumpsuit rubbed shoulders with a billowing white organza blouse that read like a tribute to Gianfranco Ferré. Meanwhile, floor-length dresses in iridescent fabric had all the cachet of plastic baubles.
