Fausto Puglisi: Ready-to-wear SS16
Fausto Puglisi is a red-blooded Southern Italian – just like Gianni Versace, of whom he is an obvious and unashamed fan. He showed his spring 2016 collection in Gianni’s old teatro digs, and there was a sense of his energy, exuberance and humour in Puglisi’s feisty short skirts, draped in brilliant contrasts of limoncello and lilac, or lapis blue and red. There was a mythological motif, of golden clamshell embroidery and brawny Greek gods brawling in jacquard knits, atop jangling cowboy boots for good measure. Rich pickings.
