Finally, some accessories! Designer BENNY ROSSET used accessories on the runway, and good ones at that. There was a Grecian feeling to the collection imparted by the one shoulder cream dress and “Artemis print”, Greek key gold hardware detailing and prints, and patent gladiators with interesting fishnet insets. There was a touch of Cleopatra thrown in thanks to the hammered gold breastplate necklaces and gold bracelets coiling up the models’ forearms. The vast majority of the collection showed originality. We love Pucci, but the house of Pucci does Pucci best.
That section was short though and Benny got back on track with some vibrant coral pieces, Greek key prints and a brown and a sold bronze halter maillot with a gold Versace medusa head belt – nice touch! The hard rock eighties’ sound track helped to keep everyone energized all the way to the end.
