As dusk brought a pleasant light breeze to the city, the mood inside the Diego Binetti presentation went island with mythical adventure. Those lucky enough to be inspired by the talented designer know his vision goes beyond great clothing and his true genius is in his styling. Diego mixes hand painted, screen printed, and intricately embroidered silk chiffons in goddess-worthy shades of muted ocean with rock n’ roll belts, fringed vests and crystal booties.
A part of that new thinking included nails so special they needed to be admired up close under a looking glass. Like an oyster shell opening for the first time, the runway nails fanned open in three layers (in crystal clear, black and coral) to reveal two white pearls hiding in-between the layers; treasures buried to thrill the wearer.
