Antonio Berardi may be back in London, but he's not about to sway to the theatrics and shock tactics that goes on in other parts of the schedule. He cuts a slick pencil skirted dress that accentuates the waist as well as empowering certain types of women. The suggestiveness of last season developed into outright sexiness with delicate lace exposing suspenders and pants and sheer panels worked into dresses and pussy bow sheer blouses revealing the chest. Furs were part and parcel of Berardi's particular brand of empowering womenswear and they came in shaggy, voluminous grey and black coats and jackets. There was a suggestion of whimsy with details such as a black skirt covered in pom poms as well as a blocky square-cut red fur skirt.
