Summary: When I was a child and watched the Jetsons, I remembered envisioning mankind wearing silver Lycra tight jumpsuits in the future. I may have been on to something. Luca Orlandi deviated from his expected elegance and light for a more futuristic and hard-hitting collection. The show began with white Pradaesque ski-wear which is fitting for an Italian designer. Then a stream of amazing and futuristic ensembles began walking the runway and I found myself really liking it. Some was subtle like the gorgeous champagne sequin and mink dress and others popped you in the face like the space age white and gray suit with metallic panels and a mercury stretch bodysuit. Then, just to throw you off-guard a more expected beaded gown and a smoke pleated silk moire long dress each came down the runway, bringing back the Luca Luca that sucked you in in the first place.
