Capucci dipped into the brand’s archive, proposing a collection inspired by the Angel of Gold gown designed by Roberto Capucci in 1987 – a feast of baroque pleats and plissé in a vision of an angel ascending to Heaven. Light silk georgette dresses featured loose sculptural sleeves like wings. Shiny mini-dresses were embellished with irregular pleats and sequins. Archive winged prints were hand-painted on the impalpable surfaces of shirts and dresses in bold tints of purple and turquoise. While some of the looks were for refined, elegant angels of the night, most were for daytime angels. Dresses featured ribbons, bows and delicate bustiers, suits came with sculptural ruffles, overcoats, shirt-dresses and blouses made great daywear in technical taffeta with dabs of colour and jewelled brooches.
