June 28, 2011 Paris
Francesco Scognamiglio is known for his OTT runway looks, but even Madonna, Gaga, and Anna Dello Russo (fans, all) need to take a day off now and then. With his Resort collection—which is leggy rather than long—he's angling to dress his girls on their down time, too. Madge, especially, might be interested. Scognamiglio revisited some of her own eighties standbys here, from neons to black lace to fishnet. "They remind me of when I was young," said the designer, who just celebrated his 36th birthday in Capri. If Mamma Ciccone isn't interested, then her daughter Lola might be. The emphasis on shorts and minidresses as well as oversize tees wound up giving this outing a more youthful feel than usual. Particularly sweet: a flippy knit dress that was black above the waist and red and black below it, and a chartreuse T-shirt dress with black plastic braiding at the hem that Italians call "scooby-doos." See what we mean about kids' stuff?
