Already in history, Sergio Hudson’s name echoes with the ones of Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama and other powerful women he dressed.

Known for his silked outfits of slinky shapes that hug the body, Sergio Hudson presented a collection which felt like a déja-vu. For his new collection, we were expecting a little more fantasy, something like colorful patterns or other new textures he never elaborated, but it ended up being nothing but predictable.

Afterall, the simplicity and the monochromatic aesthetic crystalized the runway and could definitely make a great impression for a high-sleek party thanks to the sexy evening gowns. Inspired by the 80s, and by the iconic image of Diahann Carroll on her sofa in a neat comfortable white cashmere outfit, Sergio Hudson created a range of silk velvet and leather garments. “She is the quintessential well-dressed woman and that image personified luxurious American sportswear”, he highlighted.
