First look: Sara Battaglia Spring/Summer 16
Creativity and inventive experimentation
For her Spring/Summer 16 collection, Sara Battaglia spiced up her signature shapes in a palette of pink red and off-white. With details suggestive of a folkloric feel, the collection showcased new floral finishings and included a soft palette that felt perfect for spring. On the other end of the spectrum, strong, saturated reds and pinks came popping through as seen on a colourblocked shoulder bag and graphic lip motif on a top handle bag.
Battaglia's 'Lady Me' clutch was given a dose of the designer's signature fringing in pink and red that felt reminiscent of a cheerleader's pom-pom, sprouting off of the front of the gold hardware.
Festival ready – the 'Amber Fard' bag featured a floral applique that rendered rather romantic on the shoulder strap in a pale pink, set against an off-white. Continuing through the collection, the leather flowers appeared again on the front of a chainstrap shoulder bag that came in a powder pink, displaying the trademark triangle in mirrored soft-gold at the closure.
