WA, SS 80,
"La foresta incantata"

In 1979 he began working with Lanerossi, for whom he designed and
presented two collections: SS 1980 and AW 1980-81.
The summer collection was presented in October at the
Milan Trade Fair, and is famous for
its T-shirts with zodiac signs.

Never the boredom of everything being the same,
always at least two colours, if not three…
transparent and pearlised colours,
lots of blue and white,
sherbet colours and more intense ones…
thin and wide-spaced stripes,
with the added thrill of lamé,
pinstripes from men’s tailoring,
Indian stripes, bajadera…
and of course jersey for scarf dresses…
The inevitable reference to Chanel
as a signature tribute to a never-forgotten love…
A Poiret revisited after many travels…
fabulous adventures in distant lands,
entire novels condensed into one multicoloured scene,
dense with fairs and enchanted forests.
