Antonio Berardi Black Tops For Women
Rather than focusing on how his pieces fit the body, Antonio Berardi explores the way they adapt when you move for his new collection. This top is masterfully cut from neatly pleated crepe and features oversized cape-like sleeves that drape past your hips. The subtle cutout at the elbow is traced with buttons so you can customize the slit.
Scheming to claim the Scottish crown – which would ultimately be her demise Lady Macbeth was William Shakespeare’s catalyst for tragedy. Antonio Berardi looked to the cursed character to inform designs inspired by the traditional dress of that period. With a nod to Elizabethan pageantry, this stretch cotton shirt entwines classic with contemporary by cinching the dimension of pleats shaping from the yoke to the hemline.

When the Antonio Berardi woman blesses the boardroom with her presence, she does so in a mean pair of trousers. The Mauele style balances the structure of pure wool with lightweight flecks of linen and silk, meaning creasing won’t occur, but comfort levels will. Rendered in a traditional houndstooth check, the real impression is through the sheer width of the legs, while the volume is bundled into a nipped high rise waist perfect for cinching over shirts.Antonio Berardi wool, linen and silk blend trousersConcealed hook and eye and zip fastening at frontHigh rise, wide, structured waistband, pressed centre creases at front and back, all over houndstooth check pattern, slip pockets at sides, darts at back yoke55% wool, 44% linen, 1% silkDry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Rise 13", inside leg 33", leg opening 36"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Italy

The mystery and sinister nature of William Shakespeare’s cursed heroine Lady Macbeth spurs Antonio Berardi to adopt a much darker approach this season. Filled with a palette of black, grey and muted brown, the edit counterbalances the harshness with soft fabrications, a duality seen in the crepe construction of this shirt. Rippled with an overlay cape panel dipped down the back, you should rely only on muted hues when styling.Antonio Berardi crepe shirtConcealed zip fastening at backBoat neck, sleeveless, cape detail attached at back, straight hem71% acetate, 29% rayonDry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 23"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Italy
Antonio Berardi's blouse has been made in Italy from cotton-blend poplin and is cut for a slim fit. Each sleeve is trimmed with tiers of fluttery ruffles and cut down the middle with lace-up panels - we like them loosened to reveal a hint of skin. Temper its proportions by wearing yours tucked into high-rise pants.
Manipulative, brooding, power hungry; Shakespeare’s Lady Macbeth provided ample inspiration for Antonio Berardi’s AW17 collection. She’d sport something like this top when up to no good. Clean cut and simple at the neck, it’s crafted with long sleeves until the hips claims their stake with jagged embroidery all the way down to a scalloped hem. Dominate the room – and minds, if you so wish – by styling with black trousers and red lips.
