Fausto Puglisi’s first Resort collection for Emanuel Ungaro was always going to be an interesting one; the highly-anticipated show wasn’t quite what we – or anyone else for that matter – were expecting though.
It was an infusion of sleek meets street meets chic meets urban. Or to use Fausto Puglisi’s exact phrasing, “to eat a hamburger wearing a Harry Winston ring.” Hmm. Some might argue that there was a bit too much going on for it to make any kind of impact, but others (us included) will have enjoyed the experimental direction he took the collection in.
It had the sharpness of a Victoria Beckham collection, the print of a Marni offering, and the sleek colour infusion of a classic Diane von Furstenberg catwalk outing… all with an original Emanuel Ungaro twist!
Some of our favourite looks that were pulled together included a coral and purple dungaree dress teamed with a polka-dotted top, some printed high waisted palazzo pants teamed with a pastel pretty long-sleeved top and a monochrome floral maxi dress. What do you think of the collection? Too much? Not enough?
