THE INNOCENT BOHEMIAN
Milan: The exuberance of vacation locales is always a factor for Luisa Beccaria and this season her destination was the Brazilian state of Bahia, a place which inspired a sweetly casual and beachy vibe. Tailor-made for the Juniors market, Beccaria’s cotton eyelet peasant dresses were flirtatious and charming, with floral mesh panels and stripes that looked innocently bohemian. Cinched at the waist with simple ribbon belts, the silhouette was primarily lean and tiered ruffle embellishments were also best without excessive volume. However, the designer ran into trouble when transitioning to evening, and the ease of feminine cotton and lace did not translate to stodgy wallpaper florals, while headscarves suddenly read more washerwoman than “Girl from Ipanema.”—Nina Stotler
