Modern elegance radiated from Antonio Berardi’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection, flecked with crystals and folded into elegant, otherworldly shapes. This season, the designer was in an experimental mood, which bode well for his unique eveningwear creations. Instead of the predictable fitted gowns, Berardi delivered sumptuous looks with an artful twist for a more forward-thinking approach to occasion dressing.

Against a pure white backdrop at Park House in London, the show began with a knockout look: a printed silk jacket that was riveted down the sleeves with crystal beading. With dramatic force, Berardi’s looks strode confidently down the runway, flaunting exquisite details and unusual shapes. A strong Asian motif ran through the collection, particularly in Berardi’s brush-stroke silks, Mao jackets, cheongsam gowns, and devoré trousers in extra-wide proportions. Sculptural shoulders, flutter sleeves, and asymmetrical necklines added interesting geometry to the top half of the looks, while bottom portions were left breezy and oversized. Elsewhere, there were blousy bomber jackets paired with voluminous cocktail frocks, sheer organza suits, and dramatic opera coats. Refined eveningwear with artful touches and architectural construction will go a long way toward improving on standard red-carpet fare, buoyed by Berardi’s keen talent for eccentric luxury.
