Designer Stefano Pilati took a look toward the East this season “I felt for an extreme simplicity,” he said, “but it has to be feminine and a bit audacious. Lifting the spirits was making sense to me.” He created a fresh tear-shaped pattern which was used on blazers and boleros, both cropped and voluminous. These top-heavy silhouettes created a cocooning effect for this kimono-inspired collection. Jackets were topped off with ties at the waist created in leather lattice work. This motif was carried over into his footwear. Updated gladiators with metal-mesh heels are sure to be a huge hit with all the trendy Neo-Gothic fashion seekers.
