A ring of fire in the mid­dle of the cat­walk sym­bol­ised the power of the Ital­ian de­signer’s sexy-fierce pieces for au­tumn and win­ter. Flames dec­o­rated skirts, dresses, coats and fur as the mod­els heated up the cir­cu­lar cat­walk. El­e­men­tal, too, were the lay­ers of an­i­mal prints and skins that were key to this col­lec­tion—hand­painted lion heads were a re­cur­ring mo­tif, as was python print, seen on bombers and skin-tight trousers. Mink col­lars tied th­ese ca­sual looks to­gether with evening wear, while fur stoles em­bel­lished a mix of long and short 1920s-in­spired flap­per frocks, exquisitely beaded, shim­mer­ing and Gatsby-es­que. Neck­wear stood out as gi­ant swing­ing pen­dants added to the allure of the kohl-eyed mod­els, en­cour­ag­ing those femmes fa­tales to get in touch with their darker side.
