Milan, Sept 24:  Inspired by Zaha Hadid's avant-garde architectural designs, Mariuccia Mandelli folded, pleated and tucked stiff fabrics in glistening textures into graphic cocoon shapes and dramatic ruffles in her collection on Thursday (23 September 2010) in Milan.

 Trousers had false inverted pleats, and jackets and mini-dresses showed origami like pleated bodices that gave a Japanese feel.  There were petal folds in shorts and trousers; and rounded skirts and little sleeves.  

 Evening wear was super chic in black and white.  An organza tuxedo was teamed with jodhpur trousers, and a knitted jumpsuit had a crocodile print.  

Colours were inspired by aspects of nature such as sand, mud, stone, egg shells and butter. They came in the hues of white gold, silver, optical white, lilac, cornflower, magenta, bright green, and olive green, lime, rosewood and antique pink.

Materials used were vinyl, sparkling rafia, satin, lame, and silk and taffeta.  Leather was laser-embroidered and studded.  Fabrics were crisp or soft, and a little bit 'lived in'.  

Accessories came in the form of coloured sandals with high heels and contrasting platforms.  Glitter belts had mirror buckles and maxi mirrored buckles, some were doublelayered, and they were additions on her brightly coloured bags.

Black rubber pochettes had coloured details, and multristrand necklaces were embelished with rigid metal semicircles hanging from chains and rat tail cords.  AP
