The Fall 2009 collection is “inspired first and foremost by strong women, women with strong character but femininity too. It was a nod a little to the 30s and 40s feeling, more importantly on investment dressing. Clothing that don’t scream a season, but instead can wear in five to ten years and still be relevant to your wardrobe,” explains creative director Raul Melgoza. “In these times it’s really about not giving up luxury but investing in pieces that have a long life in your wardrobe.”

The palette includes gray purple, burgundy, charcoal, teal, gunmetal, slate blue, wine, crimson and black.

Key pieces and fabrics include a tweed coat and pencil skirt, wool dresses and pants, silk jersey dresses, a velvet chiffon gown, silk dresses with beading detail, a mink cropped jacket and fox scarves.

With versatility and longevity in mind, Luca Luca presents pieces that can be worn from day to night, like a charcoal wool off shoulder mitered dress with notched collar jacket. Wool herringbone trousers or wool twill wide legged pants can easily be added into your wardrobe.

As always, Luca Luca dresses are luxurious and elegant, including a gray purple sleeveless paneled silk wool dress with chiffon insets and a crimson red silk jersey one shoulder dress. The last look was a gorgeous sapphire blue strapless gown in silk chiffon with bias mitering.
