With many different names transitioning through the Ungaro fashion house, all eyes were on the fall 2013 runway at Paris Fashion Week.
Today it was the Italian up-and-comer Fausto Puglisi’s turn to try his hand at the house’s legacy, and his previous collections covered in geometric prints and embroideries made him a reasonably logical choice for this show. “I wanted it to be very Ungaro, but with a graphic approach,” Puglisi said backstage. “It’s not romantic, it’s more graphic.” Puglisi incorporated Ungaro signatures into his looks with flowers and patterns, and incorporated plenty of polka dots, leopard prints, and a bright palette of yellow, light blue, and royal blue mixed with black and ivory. The one-shoulder dresses mixed with bright, contrasting colors offered a unique spin to the fall runways, and featured a mod, retro-inspired feel to the designs. I thought the use of geometric patterns was unique and playful, and the collection definitely had a creative mix of high fashion, fun, and couture. The light blue and leopard combination was one of my favorites!
