Alberto Zambelli brought a collection of abstract pop art to the runway. Furry capes, scallop shaped ruffles and urbane overcoats highlighted the essence of street chic and the ultra modern. Exquisite contemporary palette and sophisticated printed work highlighted the silhouettes to near perfection. High-waisted belts,  elaborated scarves, perforated sleeves and flowing ruffles brought out a refreshing outlook – a definite ultra chic.
