That maxi skirt in particular felt more fashion-y than typical Beccaria fare. In fact, the designer and her daughter Lucilla Bonaccorsi might be paying too much attention to recent Valentino runways. The echoes were strong here, not only in those pleats, but also in the eyelet pieces and the floral embroidery on a long-sleeve tulle dress with a full skirt. Another tulle number in a watercolor print of crystals had no progenitors we could think of, and was better for it.
