Fausto Puglisi’s new femme fatale for Ungaro seduced with a new sense of decoration that shunned polka dots and spangles, flared and airy shapes in favour of a long, lean silhouette wearing menswear fabrics, animal motifs, lace and floral prints with a Seventies twist. The verticality of the figure influenced the lines of the clothes, which were tapered or body-conscious: mid-calf length tube skirts, some with a deep split, and mannish ¾ length trousers with turn-ups were worn with thin Victorian-style blouses or dappled or tropical shirts, long dresses with floral lace insets, fluid coats with art nouveau-style metallic patterns. The waist was accentuated by belts with big buckles, generous splits revealed fishnet tights in court shoes or suede boots.
