Diego Binetti never met a flowing fabric he didn’t love. Romantic, free, and deeply beautiful gowns are what he does best. As he has told me many times, his women are goddesses, and that spirit shows through in this Spring 2013 collection. Awash in bright colors and luxurious silks, the models well represented the designer’s ocean deity theme.
Mr. Binetti has always possessed a balanced touch with his fantastical visions. Although stunning, they, for the most part, are actually easy to wear, and fit well into his clients’ wardrobes. He doesn’t dare to inhibit the movement and freedom of his women. Can you blame him? Who would want an ocean goddess cross with him?
