IN THE PINK
New York: Giovanna Randall clearly took her Valentine’s Day adjacent show date to heart with an adorable collection packed with pink hues, pretty prints and girly trims. The candy colors and 60s silhouettes were reminiscent of Jackie O and her wardrobe of boxy skirt suits, cocoon coats, ankle-grazing pants and column gowns by Oleg Cassini, Valentino, Christian Dior and Hubert de Givenchy. The collection was high on cutesy details like Peterpan collars, jeweled necklines and heart-shaped cutouts and brocade, but the sumptuous fabrics, beautiful cuts and luxurious decoration saved it from being sickly saccharine and made it sweetly sophisticated. The catalyst for the collection, Randall said in a preview, was to “create a coat that would make me smile even on the darkest day in winter,” an objective she achieved with each and every piece. — Natalie Shukur
