This season, the Beccaria look spanned black silk velvets punctuated with ivory frills; forties frocks with puffed shoulders, bow fronts, and flippy hems in an arabesque-print silk or silvered lace; sixties bracelet-sleeved A-line coats; and, of course, a fair amount of fuchsia pink. In fuchsia, a short strapless satin dress worked better than a ruched cocktail number in silk velvet. A rosebud-print trench and matching pants added up to a misstep, too, but you could imagine Beccaria pulling off the same silhouette in a solid. One of the best looks of the show was a tailored, ankle-grazing evening trench. Among the more ethereal chiffon evening confections, it stood out for its sophistication.
