Spring brought a romantic feel to the house of Agnona. “I tried to image how Truman Capote’s swans would dress today,” said creative director Simon Holloway. Micro and macro flowers were combined on both a silk halter-neck dress and a fluid jumpsuit, which had a breezy, feminine feel. The mood resonated with a knitted color-blocked dress in pink and caramel tones. It was paired with a linen and sateen blazer with a couturelike construction, a silhouette that was echoed in a chic cashmere robe coat. Holloway offered a new take on the traditional suit, with a playful cotton and denim doubled-faced version with a waisted tuxedolike jacket and cuffed short pants. A Sixties inspiration ran through the evening dresses, which included a minimal one-shoulder column style with a built-in asymmetric capelet. While staying loyal to his elegant, retro vision, Holloway managed to give a modern, lively twist to the lineup.
