Key Takeaways: Luca Orlandi embraced print and embellishment for his Caribbean-inspired collection, perhaps too much. With a few of the looks, the mixing and matching of patterns was overwhelming. However, Orlandi also showed a number of 60s inspired (at least in terms of silhouette) sundresses that seemed much more wearable.
Color Palette: White, beige, and brown along with bursts of color: yellows, greens, reds, purples, blues, oranges, etc. Bright colors, reminiscent of a tropical vacation.
Silhouettes: Voluminous skirts and pants, plunging necklines, tulip skirts (seen in previous Luca Luca collections), boxy jackets, sweaters with pushed up sleeves, rounded Peter Pan collars, sweet sundresses, and an emphasis on a higher waistline.
Accessories Report: More belts (at the natural waistline), and chunky necklaces and oversized bags. Not much new here.
What’s Wearable: Pretty sundresses in innocent 1960s shapes.
