In a collection of billowing silhouettes, designer Albino D’Amato used safari looks from the 20s as a point of departure for new jacket shapes and print inspirations. Fabrics softly draped the body in a palette of warm neutrals like sand and clay, with accents of indigo blue. All-things African — gazelles, cranes, leopards and palm trees — made their way into prints for glazed-linen ruched tops and silky harem pants. Tiered jackets imitated the rolling sand dunes of the Sahara and strapless dresses were tied like pareos. An organic-looking crinkled material with raw, frayed edges was used for a double-layered dress that was cinched with a rusted-rosette belt. Lurex-infused thigh-highs provided a bit of sparkle and playful seduction.
