Sara Battaglia emerged from lockdown in May and rediscovered the joy of life at famous seaside destination Forte dei Marmi, where she shot her spring lookbook against pastel-hued cabanas.

Battaglia has a knack for conjuring silhouettes that read off-duty diva, as if there were a movie star in all of us. For spring she looked back at Sixties glamour and introduced a new print. Reminiscent of Emilio Pucci’s signature swirls, it was hand-drawn by Battaglia and splashed across a range of Bermuda shorts — a big trend in Milan — as well as tights, silky shirts and hourglass blazers.

A dramatic hooded cape with matching knee-high boots featured the same print in a sunflower yellow tone. Not exactly beach-appropriate, but in tune with her flamboyant approach.

For the more demure ladies, full-skirted dresses in eyelet fabrications, voluminous cotton caftans and frilly shirtdresses in solids and stripes toned down this flashy collection.
