Summary: Lovely, if not wildly inventive, clothing came rolling down the runway in Luca Luca's Fall '10 show, clothing that would be at home in many a closet. An exaggerated collar, asymmetrical frills or cut-out details updated the dresses and coats, and deep hues, the colors of bruised flesh made for a sensuous, moody palette. His shift dresses were versatile, largely flattering and thus a fantastic wardrobe addition for anyone looking for great dresses but who lacks the desire to make an earth-shattering fashion statement. One dress in particular caught my attention, however: a long-sleeve dress with cut out detail in front and back that was shown in two fabrics—gold sequins for evening and hammered silk satin mauve for day. Beautiful, sexy without being revealing and, given the dearth of long-sleeved cocktail dresses on the market, beautifully unique.
