Luisa Beccaria and her daughter Lucilla Bonaccorsi are keen to build the company. Their first-ever pre-collection featured more daywear than their runways typically do. If you're shopping for pants, Beccaria will probably never be your brand, but a tailored blazer with metallic gold detailing and the floor-length pleated skirt it was shown with felt new, and so did tweed bouclé jackets with inset stripes of lace. The navy and black version looked especially good. For day, a midnight-blue dress with a bohemian spirit—bishop sleeves, full skirt, lace waistband—distinguished itself from the rest. Evening dresses, Beccaria's pane e burro, weren't the focus here; mom and daughter are saving them for their February show. But a sleeveless gown with thin bands of holographic fringe from neck to hem was a nice change from their usual lace and chiffon.
