Emilio de la Morena
With the team of American ELLE, fashion's blue-blooded Julia Restoin-Roifeld and front row favourite Olivia Palermo, Emilio de la Morena sure had his work cut out to impress a waiting audience. However, when the heavy bass from a remixed Editors song kicked in and the first model appeared, his collection showed a strong, coherent and rather exciting look. Sorbet leathers with punched out polka dot details looked utterly stunning (I know what's on my wish list). Huge graphic gold necklaces lifted the cut-out dresses and granite blacks. Sixties influences and skater skirts all made for a girly and playful look. Feminine, fierce and completely covetable, this collection encapsulated what summer should be all about.
