More seventies vibes at Gucci with very interesting leather and lace mix dresses. The oriental print from this collection will no doubt become one of the most recognisable prints from the season. Futher nods to the 70's at Fendi with suede mini dresses, but my favourite look was the cut out feather dress worn by Joan Smalls...talk about attitude! Amazing. Versace and Dolce and Gabbana stuck to their tried and tested formula's. Daring thigh high splits and shimmery fabric at Versace and a plethora of Black/Red and Gold at Dolce and Gabbana. Dramatic ostrich feathers, animal print and marble effect dresses at Cavalli marked a stark contrast to the feminine flowing gowns seen at Alberta Ferretti. I particularly liked the prints at Ferretti with throwbacks to the brands SS14 prints. This time around the scarf like prints were in pretty pastel shades of lilac and pink. Soft paisley prints were seen on the runway at Etro, in its entirety the collection reminded me of Zandra Rhodes designs. The shape of the dresses, the sheer fabric and the naïve yet controlled prints. I'm always a fan of Pucci and this season was no different. The embellished mini dresses, fringing, scallop hems and colourful gowns were beautiful as ever.
