Antonio Berardi Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection was shown in London Fashion Week, September 21,2015.
Antonio Berardi played with the contrast between precise tailoring and romantic fluidity in this glamorous, yet easy collection.The standouts were languid silk dresses with billowing trains, as in one racer-back number in a pale sky blue. That design was worn with a matching silk trench coat that slipped off the model’s shoulders, adding to the collection’s undone air. And naturally for a designer whose collections occupy high-octane territory, there was plenty of embellishment, but this season Berardi worked his decoration in a comparatively low-key way. A series of silk dresses were stitched with a lavish paisley pattern of sequins, but they were matte rather than shiny.A masculine foil to the ultra-feminine creations came from tuxedo suits that were sharply cut, but worked into relaxed, oversized shapes. Among them was a gleaming white tuxedo with black lapels with rounded, cocooning shoulders.
