Lacy see-through dresses have always been one of
Ungaro's specialties. This season he ran with the
theme, and created a sexy collection that alluded to
old-school glamour with a modern twist.
Ungaro's palette was dreamy and naive: mint julep, pale
yellow, rose petal pink, salmon and sporadic shocks of
purple. His gowns were sweetly embroidered, draped
and appliquéd, but they were also tattered, tied and
twisted. Wide belts with large suede flowers and
dangling cords and streamers gave the silhouette a
feeling of dejected chic. Ungaro also offered some
perfectly cut trousers, worn with frayed, ruffled
blazers that will look great dressed down with crisp
dark jeans. The fitting finale for his presentation:
All the girls wafted onstage gradually, forming a
chic pastel tableau.
