Basic shapes were the building blocks of Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi's show for Gianfranco Ferre. Circles and squares combined with a bit of streamlined glamour made for some architecturally interesting dresses. I like how the rectangle side pockets on these dresses make an evening bag unneccessary and add some edgy angles to the models' curves.
Some of the looks got a little carried away with embellishements and volume. Check out the flummoxed faces of the front row when this bedazzled beaut came down the catwalk.
That guy back there looks so confused.
