Keeping it above the knee: Nicola Finetti resort

Nicola Finetti’s core offering of pretty above the knee cocktail dresses never moves too far off course – which says something for the success of his long serving aesthetic. Resort 2013 works in fresh floral prints and classic ivory whites atop full skirts, petal hems, and the occasional peplum. If anything feels a departure it’s the draped, pastel-coloured numbers, which – in their easy shapelessness – have a sort of 1920s sensibility.

The kind of dresses that are sure to be a hit with Finetti’s devotees, it’s a resort collection you can view more of by clicking on the gallery.
