Sara Battaglia SPRING 2021 READY-TO-WEAR

Quarantine pushed some designers into DIY mode—think Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Louis Vuitton’s Nicolas Ghesquière, who both took to the camera and lensed their advertising campaigns or lookbooks themselves. Sara Battaglia joined the illustrious bandwagon of amateur photographers, embracing the challenge of shooting her own resort collection. Entrusting a model friend, with no help from a makeup artist and no hairdresser in tow (and no post-prod retouching, as she proudly pointed out), she decamped to Forte dei Marmi, a swanky Italian resort famous for its rainbow-colored beachside cabanas. “After the restrictions of the confinement, I wanted to give free rein to my joie de vivre,” she said on the phone. Who can blame her?

Battaglia’s style comes with an ingrained dose of flash—not even the strictest quarantine could tone it down. The allover Pucci-esque swirling print she designed for the collection (she called it “a dancing, smiling motif”) looked rather statement-making. Only a very self-confident post-lockdown creature, eager to resume flying the glamour banner, would have the nerve to negotiate a sandy beach wearing high-heels and a head-to-toe matching ensemble—a pair of skirt/shorts, an hourglass-y blazer, leggings, and a huge floppy hat, all curlicue-printed in a bright shade of emerald green. No question of going unnoticed wearing it—but after months of isolation, a little peacocking should actually do no harm, right?

On a more subdued note, roomy poplin caftans, poet-sleeved cady blouses paired with palazzo pants, frilly lace babydolls, and cinched-waisted bustier sundresses (paired with comfy flats) looked suitable enough for the easy, relaxed beach life that owners of not-so-statuesque bodies and with no particular diva-esque proclivities can enjoy. Yet Battaglia can’t help loving a bit of theatrics; for her, there’s apparently a dormant movie star in each one of us, ready to be awakened.
