The inspiration for the collection was actress Sophia Loren at her sexiest when she danced the mambo in a 1955 Italian film. Besides the veggies from the kitchen, there was a set of lace and crochet cocktail dresses and a finale of their signature corsets encrusted to the hilt in colorful crystals.
Surely, it looks a little too kitsch for comfort, but it is for summer and when else can you do it. After a few too many years of playing safe... this year looks like the designers are finally ready to stand out of the crowd and look unique. Love.
