Maurizio Pecoraro took a lighter approach with his spring collection — both in palette and in the pieces themselves. Pecoraro worked with pastels and neutrals for the simple silhouettes, giving them an easy, breezy feeling. Items seemed to be stripped down to their essential parts; trench coats, shorts, woven tees and cropped jackets felt uncomplicated and sincere. Following the Prada-instigated trend of pant-lessness, and the renewed interest in vintage foundation garments, Pecoraro included several looks with paneled briefs worn as a bottom. Some summery separates featured upbeat prints of flat leaves and flowers inspired by the work of mid-century Swedish ceramic artist Stig Lindberg; others were corsaged with frayed tufts of pompom, suggesting slightly wilted hydrangea blossoms. For evening, Pecoraro included more embellishments and shine — silver lamé pants were worn with a simple vest whose sequined base layer was further adorned with feathers and what appeared to be golden seashells. Maurizio Pecoraro’s new simplicity helped his gently chic message to sound clear and strong.
