Emanuel Ungaro Paris
Emanuel Ungaro is a French fashion designer, son of an Apulian tailor (Francavilla Fontana) exile in France because fascism. 100% Emanuel Ungaro. True DNA at its purest form. Maison Emanuel Ungaro’s codes, remain both fundamental and intensified. The femininity, the ruches, the flowers, the prints, and the lines. It’s romantic but tailored, sleek and modern.
The heroic Parisian aesthetic of the early 80’s is reinterpreted by sharper silhouettes under the creative direction of Fausto Puglisi. Details within the construction become important volumetric elements, modernized by strong, decisive lines. It’s romantically bold. A bold romance. Multilayered and voluminous necklines bring emphasis to the upper body. It’s the edgy, unexpected charm of the bourgeoisie. The prints, so symbolic of the Maison, coexist with color blocking and ruches.
Fabrics such as gazar and crinoline translate to daywear and bring emphasis to the couture spirit of the collection. Three dimensional jacquard and fil coupe accentuate the intricate textures. White and black, turquoise and yellow, green and purple.
