Summary: Luca Luca‘s creative director, Raul Melgoza, seemed particularly infatuated with circles this season, in a collection inspired by “the sensuality and femininity of a strong woman”. Melgoza indeed trotted out some power pieces – a silk crepe jumpsuit, satin tuxedo jackets and silk chiffon gowns with cut-out shoulders to name a few – many of which sported tiny button detailing across a pocket or down the side. The accent, though slight, did add an extra bit of modernism to silhouettes that bordered on vintage-inspired and a sense of utility to the otherwise draped and flowing shapes.
