Emanuel Ungaro - Paris Fall 2009
(PARIS) "This was about making this chic Ungaro madam a little bit more free-spirited and relaxed," said Esteban Cortazar after his third Ungaro effort. "There's so much sculpted fabric tradition about this house, but I wanted to work with that in a more structured way--without compromising the flamboyant and wonderful femininity of our consumer." He certainly succeeded by finally and confidently bringing his free-spirited South Beach instinct to Avenue Montaigne. The girls walking down the runway did so with wide smiles and rhythmic struts. Body-hugging dresses, well-cut micro-mini skirts, flowing polka dot blouses, spirited knits, and expertly cut jackets dominated the show, perhaps decreasing the houses' target age by at least 15 years in the span of 15 minutes. Cortazar, who's now only 24, is perhaps best suited to keep taking the grandiose house into the young and happening closets.
