Francesco Scognamiglio Spring/Summer 2011

Lady Gaga is a huge fan. So too Rihanna. And judging from what was on show here for his 2011 Spring collection, it's obvious why.

Celebrating his tenth anniversary, the still-under-the-radar designer chose Milan's historic Loggia dei Mercanti as a venue, his models resembling high-class courtesans in ruffles and microscopic lace.

While, admittedly, it was hard to see how these theatrical creations would work for a civilian clientele, there was enough imagination and showmanship (as well as some nice, wearable pieces through-out) to suggest Scognamiglio might be a household name very soon.
