Francesca Liberatore ss16 heart

Francesca Liberatore’s ss16 collection was a passionate affair for ss16 during #NYFW.  Centered around the human heart, the Italian designer showcased a sensual series of designs featuring heart motif prints in a range of striking hues and textured fabrics.

A notable celebrity following filled the front row, model Shaun Ross, Nigel Barker, and Kelly Osborne, supported the Italian designer’s third New York Fashion Week show.


Sultry, feminine silhouettes glided down the runway in sheer chiffon, lace, ribbed knits, and silk.  Unexpected details added sensuality to the collection—criss-cross detailing on the back of dresses, asymmetric cuts that revealed just the right amount of skin, and peek-a-boo sheers adorned with sequin and embroidered prints.

An amorous palette of warm tangerines, sangria and rust was offset with navy blue, black and white.  Colors were layered upon each other— a tangerine floor length silk dress revealing black undergarments, vivid rust embroidery sat atop a black sheer chiffon.  The collection’s spicy hues and brushstroke style prints lended an eastern sensibility and air of exoticism.

Hair and make up lent the pieces an ethereal quality.  Make up was minimal with kohl rimmed eyes and strong brows.  Strokes of silver shimmer detailed models’ foreheads, hands and bare feet in almost tribal markings.  Hair was down, center parted and had a lived-in quality.

The show’s most spectacular element was its closing number— a sheer tangerine dress featuring an oversized heart completely made out of rhinestones—a testament to Liberatore’s ability to convey emotion through inventive design.
