Most of Chiara Boni’s stretch jersey dresses, jumpsuits and gowns, in bright pinks and rusty oranges, paid close, sensual attention to the female form. Boni also did some printed and pleated versions of these in tulle and georgette that were quite pretty and more sensual than sexy. Where her second skin design aesthetic looked best was, predictably, in her sleek maillots, shown under flowing and sweeping printed-chiffon dusters.


Swinging in another direction, Boni showed some very pretty, ladylike flared dresses in a black and white cotton or an off-the-shoulder peasant look in a coral and white abstract print. This collection gave her customers options whatever their mood. She clearly she knows sex sells.
