You know what they say, that simplicity has a killer elegance you can’t obtain with tons of frills and thrills. Well, Antonio Berardi’s simplicity for Spring Summer 2010 was too simple.
The too simple simplicity, the killer of all styles. Yes, it’s a beautiful collection, I’m sure everyone who was on it worked pretty hard and that’s why they deserve the standing ovations. Fashionwise, though, I felt too young for Antonio Berardi. (which can’t be good, since I’m only 18!) (the story continues right after the jump with more images and a video of the Antonio Berardi Fashion Show!)
I felt his spring summer 2010 collection was too safe and too neutral, despite of the daring, samurai-ish geometrical cuts, despite of the very bright colors (electric blue, bright orange) and the very short skirts. There was something missing from this collection. Fashion. Young and appealing fashion. Yes, I did felt some of his pieces, I loved the two-toned stiletto shoes (very challenging for the walking models), yet Antonio Berardi’s Spring Summer 2010 was over severe and over conservative for my taste. How did it make you feel? (you can see photos of the entire collection here)
