Collectable dolls is the named inspiration behind this collection. With chiffon as his favorite textile for the season, he plays it up with a mixture of textures, embroidery and pleats. Pieces with sheer panels paired with feathers were stunning.

Cennamo kept the color palette simple: black, white and pops of lilac. “Lilac brings spring alive but color isnt the main focus of the collection. I want it to be about the detailed handwork and the mixture of textures” said the designer.
