PARIS -- Another day at fashion week, another old-fashion house trying for a revival with a new designer at the helm.
At Paris Fashion Week on Monday, it was the house of Emanuel Ungaro giving it yet another try, this time with Italian designer Fausto Puglisi, who succeeds a string of failed predecessors, most notably one-time artistic advisor Lindsay Lohan.
The look: Hyper-feminine silhouettes, riotous color and print and jeweled accents. Mixed patterns on a single garment — a pair of pants with polka dots on one leg and leopard spots on the other leg, for example. One-shoulder mini-dresses with color-block details and high leg slits. Drapey jumpsuits, one in gray pinstripes. Blouses covered in jeweled butterfly brooches.
The verdict: It seems Ungaro may finally have found the right man. These clothes were exuberant and fun. I can particularly see them resonating with the pop music crowd.
