Ungaro's palette was dreamy and naive: mint julep, pale yellow, rose petal pink, salmon and sporadic shocks of purple. His gowns were sweetly embroidered, draped and appliquéd, but they were also tattered, tied and twisted. Wide belts with large suede flowers and dangling cords and streamers gave the silhouette a feeling of dejected chic. Ungaro also offered some perfectly cut trousers, worn with frayed, ruffled blazers that will look great dressed down with crisp dark jeans. The fitting finale for his presentation: All the girls wafted onstage gradually, forming a chic pastel tableau.
