Soft, feminine fabrics can make for a strong and modern statement. The bright, voluminous see-through frocks at Chanel and Gucci were worn with elegant extras. At Fendi, a sense of playful innocence came through via sheer babydoll dresses that played peekaboo with hand-knitted undergarments. It’s naivety that’s dripping with sexappeal.
