Emanuel Ungaro Catwalk Fashion Show Paris SS2012
With the start of new chief designer Jeanne Labib-Lamour (29) Ungaro wiped out the bad memory of the last few collections (designed by Lindsay Lohan and Giles Deacon). The label made a fresh start with a more clear and controlled collection.
The first great thing she did, was introducing some amazing aqua-colored prints, inspired by aerial photos taken by NASA. They looked fresh, vivid and super glamorous and were used for comfy pants, luxurious blouses, bathing suits and frilly dresses.
Then there was attitude of the show; still sexy, but a far cry from those pasties we saw a few collections back with LaLohan. No extreme cleavages, no ultra-short skirts; every looks was well proportioned. The girls looked chic and sophisticated, even in the many fully sequined dresses at the end of the show.
Let’s just hope Labib-Lamour will stay around for a few seasons.
