Maurizio Pecoraro RTW Spring 2017

Maurizio Pecoraro framed his eclectic, gilded bourgeois spring collection in an effusive jungle theme, citing Elsa Martinelli and Henri Rousseau in his program notes. Animalia abounded — the show opened with a frilled, giraffe-print dress over matching cropped pant, and coursed through many species in the wild, including tigers embroidered on the chest of a brown lace shirt; parrots similarly placed on a lace bomber; cartoonish monkeys hidden in an earth-tone floral jacquard, and serpents colorfully printed on a billowing peasant dress. Fabrics and embellishments were luxuriously executed and the refined wearability of the shapes domesticated some of the wackier wildlife references.
