LFW : Antonio Berardi Fall 2010

Coming closely after Mary Katrantzou, Antonio Berardi is my second favorite show for London Fashion Week. Away from the abstract prints and edgy clothes, Antonio Berardi is all about being mature, chic and luxe. Think Victoria Beckham, Dita von Teese, Renee Zellweger..

Like Victoria Beckham's hourglass shapes, amazing silhouette. And again, I tagged my favorite look. You ask why?.. I just felt the dress is beautiful and although there might be a boobs-showing, the dress is elegant and a little bit naughty. Very sexy.

Besides having dress with sheer/mesh details - full boobs on display -, I love every single dress above. They are so elegant, classic and simply beautiful. As well as the suit dresses. If you're thinking of a great date, just get a set of Agent Provocateur lingerie underneath the suit dresses and you're ready to go!

And lastly, the furs in the collection. Absolutely adore the collection.
Very feminine.. and I guess I shall stop going any further. I am full of praise for the collection.

Style.com's Review by Sarah Mower :
Antonio Berardi is on the side of women rather than girls. He's known for cutting a shapely dress; he's great at curvaceous paneling and emphasizing a bosom; and he uses excellent fabrics. For Fall, he worked a Mad Men-ish knee-length hourglass silhouette, with a strong salute toward the Saint Laurent seventies: sheer tops, fur chubbies, and all.

Those choices meant the bulk of Berardi's collection didn't seem totally up to speed with fashion's headlong dash to reinvent itself. Invoking YSL is one of the most overworked clichés in the book, and hobbling models with un-walkable stilettos on a slippery floor reduced the erotic intentions of those passages to near fiasco. It was the ones that got away—the pieces that somehow fell outside the show's themes—that seemed more cogent to the season's developing ideas. A jacket-coat-dress hybrid tailored in gray menswear fabric and the sinuous long red-velvet dresses, one with a deep cowl back revealing sparkle embroidery on nude, were standouts.
