For Francesco Scognamiglio, women are, “Paladins of the 21st century, subtle guests in fabulous locales.”
With this confident, strong woman in mind, he put forth a wardrobe in which the warrior’s armor is less a physical barrier and more an immaterial reflection of her attitude. For the warmer months, one of Francesco Scognamiglio’s favorite schticks is to slick translucent fabric over the skin. Barely a gauze, mind you, something to give a soft focus rather than obscure the body from view. It follows that the collection he proposed would not be for shy wallflowers, with its no-holds-barred (or hidden) vision of a modern day Aphrodite.
