His collection of concentrated color schemes focused on shades of black, white, and silver, leaving a dramatic impression filled with luxury concepts. Deco, disco, ’70s, ’80s, French, Euro, and rock fused into a striking evening wardrobe to rival that of the finest international ateliers. The plunging back lines and significant cutouts left much to the imagination without compromising the magic, romance, and powerful feminine spirit of the designs.
This season’s collection marks an evolution of the cocktail and evening gown as it moves with ease from the club to black-tie events. Also en vogue were leather highlights. Gladiator-style, criss-crossed, thigh-high boots also offered an avant-garde look.
