Emanuel Ungaro's Exotic Vision at Vnyc

We're pretty confident the warrior woman look has cycled through the marketplace to the point of exhaustion and that it's time for something more demure, for sensuality, unadorned beauty and a bit of romance. All of which can be found in these signature mid 80's Emanuel Ungaro pieces we picked up along the way. So, until the chiefs at Ungaro hire someone who'll respect and utilize the house's incredible archive and put the label back in party mode, we're content to offer you this carefully chosen assortment of Ungaro at it's best.

Party girls the world over turned to Ungaro for his perfect cocktail numbers and ruched pieces, but it's his recognizable floral prints that are often sadly overlooked. Take this back-buttoned green silk blouse with it's bulbous floral & strawberry print, it makes a winning combination with our velvet skirt for cocktail hour, or dress it down with distressed denims for a look that's powerful yet breezily louche.
