Antonio Berardi Has Us Green With Envy

Feb 17 2014 - 3:28am

Antonio Berardi [1]'s palette was so strict this season that he showed only one bright hue in a collection that focused around black, white, and gray. Green was the shade of choice, a surprise given that the emerald shade most prevalent in the show was pantone [2]'s pick for last year. It appeared in sequins across the sleeves and back of a jacket, in a metallic fabric on a suit, and in a more matte form on cape detail coats and a long evening gown.

But perhaps the most obvious silhouette in the show was the minidress. The first looks were a series of thigh-skimming creations with long sleeves and nipped-in waists. Some had flippy hems, others simple pencil shapes. Many had printed panels or contrast trims or waistbands with spiky shapes.There were so many variations that finding the right little black-and-white dress (or indeed, little green dress) should be no problems at all. They should be topped, if Berardi has anything to do with it, with a sharp charcoal wool coat or longline blazer and teamed with the most dramatic footwear we've seen at London Fashion Week so far; over the knee lace-up boots with bows at the ankle and open panels up the front of the leg.
