At Chanel, formal eighteenth-century details such as panniers and fichus, were re-created in casual 21st century fabrics such as chambray, tech denims, and even plastics. The looks were dressed up with frothy lace ruffles and cuffs, and dressed down with gold platform trainers and short shorts.

Donna Karan’s latest collection was full of draped and folded silk jackets with crystal closures, which all had a confident allure. Also, the origami-like folds on paper taffeta party dresses and full skirts added excitement and edge to the silhouette. But the evening column gowns were the best in this collection.

One of Frida Giannini’s big messages for Resort 2013 was colour. There were pantsuits in denim blue and lavender, and A-line shifts and long narrow evening numbers in solid shades of yellow, turquoise green, and raspberry. All of them were topped with elaborate jeweled embellishments at the neckline, and all the looks were so lovely; Giannini certainly nailed the floral look, like Gucci had done all the way back in the 50s.
