Luca Luca - New York Spring 2009
(NEW YORK) Luca Orlandi has passed on the torch to Raoul Melgoza for his signature label; the revolving door of designers has swung again. Melgoza said that he wanted to “expand it into a sportswear-driven collection.” While some pieces continued in the elegant tradition of the brand, like a burnt orange two-tone stretch dress, the collection struggled with fit. A number of two-layer dresses were complex, but unflattering to the body. It will be interesting to see where Melgoza takes the label, but for next season let’s hope he works on his tailoring.
