It takes more than heritage, though, to push a brand forward today, so Deacon spent equal effort trying to expand the house's vocabulary. A day dress in a yellow jacquard had an efficient, modern sensibility, and pants in the same bright fabric looked cool worn with a marinière-stripe tunic trimmed in highlighter pink. Balancing out all that color were hits of army green, but let's face it, this is a designer who does irrepressible best. If it's daywear you're after from the new Emanuel Ungaro label, a pair of not-your-standard-issue trenches in that jacquard and a pink and blue mini-bubble print are your best bet.
