Speliopoulos' collection was one of his best ever for Cerruti. Filmy peasant tops, tiered miniskirts and camisole dresses with romantic overlays projected laid-back comfort. Smart linen blazers, casual suede jeans and a great disc-studded cotton jacket fringed with shoelaces all looked as though they had enjoyed a fabulous previous life. Carefully thought-out details, like rope cinches on flared-sleeve blouses and weighty ruffled collars on boho dresses, made some of the softer pieces extra-special.
To complete this easygoing wardrobe, Speliopoulos debuted a Cerruti accessories line, featuring flat, simple sandals, large totes and a great washed-lizard clutch.
