Spring 2000 Ready-to-Wear
October 04, 1999 Paris
Colonna's idea of chic is certainly not that of the haute bourgeoisie: Instead think smoky nightclubs, too much to drink and illicit romances. His slinking sensibility showed up this season in fringed, semi-destroyed denim ensembles, belted handkerchief tops with lace insets, net T-shirt dresses and paillette-trimmed rock 'n' roll ensembles with revealing slashed cutouts. Without forgoing all the hard-edged glitz, Colonna also featured some of his trademark favorites--sweaters with exposed seams, deconstructed layering and reconfigured garments.
