Antonio Berardi AW15
Inspired by architect Frank Gehry's work, particularly the curved glass and reflections of the new Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, Antonio Berardi presented a line-up that was sculptural and sensuous. Jacquard dresses with bell sleeves, shifts with peaked collars and gowns with structured ruffles came in bold shades of cerise and ochre and were intermixed with Berardi's signature razor-sharp tailoring. Front-pleat trousers featured paper bag waists and boot-cut legs and were worn with double-breasted blazers while lines were blurred between day and eveningwear with the likes of a heavily beaded skirt in gleaming gold teamed with a heavy cashmere zip-up. But it was the parkas that stole the show - appearing with ruffled hems, balloon backs and oversized hoods, whether sleeveless or adorned with glittering sequins - they were at once structured and billowing, a true tribute to architecture.
Who we saw: Yasmin and Amber Le Bon.
What they wore: A suede midi skirt and matching boots for Yasmin, and a black and white printed mini skirt and a Chanel bag for Amber.
In a nutshell: Who said parkas can't be fancy?
