There's been much gossip over whether Esteban Cortazar is still designing at Emanuel Ungaro. After rumors spread about the possible hiring of Lindsay Lohan, the designer was said to have walked out, though this week a press representative shrugged that off. Cortazar, she said, designed the 2010 pre-spring collection, so it seems to be business as usual. The line certainly has Cortazar's young styling about it, using a combination of his own take on what's current and Emanuel Ungaro's taste for pinstripes and florals. The print—stripes and roses—read as a touch insipid, but stronger pieces like a patchworked pinstripe, body-conscious zip-front dress or draped pants worn with sequin-embellished tanks hit the sexy Ungaro mark.
