Summary: Dennis Basso took inspiration from 70’s poolside soirées for his spring collection at the risk of appearing dated. The looks in warm rose-toned colors consisted of godet dresses and separates often accented by hand embellished vests and cropped jackets. Some look especially those featuring the batik print captured the "flirty young appeal" that Basso strived for, but as many pieces seemed out of place in 2009 spring attire.
