With rough-hewn edges and flowing satiny-silks the collection was both romantic (DIAPHANOUS. adjective = light, delicate, and translucent) and modern. The colour palette popping in vibrant yellow, red and burnt orange, only temporarily toned down with khaki, light blue, and white contrasts.
I want? That asymmetrical red pantsuit with spaghetti straps. Gorgeous!
