This season, Caterina revitalizes vintage silk crepe de chine floral prints from the historic studios of Gianni Versace and Lancetti, turning them into flirty high-waisted skirts, winsome summer frocks, floaty maxi dresses and contrast-edged cropped tops. She also does her own spin on the Asian trend, creating quadrilateral kimono vests, bordered by brightly coloured leather lapels. For Spring/Summer 2013, Caterina updates green and white V-e-r-s-a-c-e letter printed silk with sporty silhouettes and shorts, as seen in Set 2.
